30 Inch Wooden Spoke Cannon Wheel
Use these 30" wheels to build 1/2 scaled replica cannons and reenactment supply carts.
Wheels are made from 1-1/4” diameter hickory spokes and steam-bent hickory rounds mounted to an ash hub with a 7/8” diameter axle hole providing a weight capacity of 300lbs. Suitable for ornamental and working cannons.
The wheel will require the hub to be bored and metal bushings installed if the wheels are to be used as working wagon wheels to be pulled over distances.
Metal tire rim made from 1/8” steel 1-1/2” wide.
The wheels are unfinished. Please expect 2-4 weeks.
These wheels are structurally as strong as the authentic wood-spoke wheels. They will be a rougher grade wood more suitable for ornamental and rustic applications than for a furniture premium grade stain and varnish project. You may need to add some filler in spots and do additional sanding if you plan on painting or finishing them.
