The Most Comprehensive Book on Building Carriage and Wagon Wheels — Ever! This general reference book is accessible to beginners while at the same time challenging to intermediate level wheelwrights. Lots of information—the chapters guide the reader through the steps in building spiders—the first step in wheel building—for Sarven hubs, bolted hubs, wagon hubs and carriage hubs. Subsequent chapters follow the progressive steps in wheel construction, from pointing and tenoning spokes to installing felloes and setting tires. There is a chapter on boring and boxing hubs to complete the wheel building sequence. A large number of appendices provide additional information on where to find wheelwright training, reference information for wheelwrights, measured drawings for building tools, as well as technical sections on such topics as dish.
