This is a super simple way to create low fidelity multiples for prototyping purposes.

Step 1: Choose & Mark Material: Cut to Square

I chose some cheap construction grade pine for this exercise.  I'll be making 3 wheels for part of a chair mock-up.

Measure and cut squares; make a corner to corner 'X' to find the center on both sides.
I'd center drill them all with a pilot hole, gang stack them and then turn them to a common OD, and then face cut them individually back through the stack..
I don't think the blanks have a through hole. It looks like the headstock side has a steb center.
very interesting
