Step 2: Materials
I started work on the Styrofoam wheel
Step 3: Cutting the Styrofoam
The arc shape pieces are then assembled into a circle and glued together. I used a water based wood glue which was not the best choice - it took several days to dry.
I used 'hot glue' sparingly to hold it together while the wood glue was drying. Too much hot glue can cause the Styrofoam to melt!
Apparently there are glues available at the art supply store that would have been more appropriate.
This was actually the most expensive part of the project - about $15.00
Step 4: Wheel Spokes and Hand Grips
The spindle must be cut in half, and the ends sanded smooth.
I needed to buy only 4 spindles to make the eight spokes and hand grips.
