Default Borax Wagon Wheels

I ran across this video of how they made the wooden borax wagon wheels. I tends to get a bit long, so fast forward if you like.

"wright"

"Right"

"write"

He is very talented at what he does. Lots more aspects to coachwork than I would have expected. He also does upholstery
