I made another wheel using a technique from model airplane construction.  I wrapped cardboard wedges with "polyester heat-shrink monofilm".  This material is standard for model airplane wings and is available in many colors from hobby shops.  the end result looks good, but it was a lot of work to make this so i wouldn't recommend it generally.

Great iea it inspired me to make my own. I used decorative sheet metal from homedepot, cut into pie shapes then folded around the spokes
