Wood spoke wheel – Pt II

36° Section
BigVThere are going to be ten spokes. That means each will occupy 36° of the circle. I revert back to the single lathed spoke and from the center-line I create two planes forming that 36° angle. We will use these to ‘slice off’ the bits not needed.
Narrowing Spoke
Spoke_Section_diasLooking at a side-sectional view (90° to the circular aspect) through the spoke. We already have the 0.53 small dia. We can also see that the large end has been trimmed down to a 0.636 width.
