I had to share this picture of the wagon wheel with the rim coming off. It also shows the way the spokes were attached. I wonder how this rim was wedged on the wheel when it was first constructed.
Beautiful textures and colors. Good point of view!

This is super. I like the construction detail. Maybe they heated the rim a bit and then forced it on.

Outstanding detail Don! I don't know if anyone answered you but I know how the rim was molded to the wood segment of the wheel ;) The blacksmith would heat the iron and pound the edge of the rim to form that bend and would use his anvil to get the bend to the wheel shape as he pounded the strip of iron. It was a hot and slow but very meticulous process.
