    I now have 500 3/4" wheels drilled out to for halos. I have thought of using a dowel to make them also, but I think the grain running that way is a bit weak for my needs.

      With the wheels you have most of the Halo nicely rounded. If you did a dowel there would be additional rounding involved. But the turning would be fun. I suspect that the wheels have the same grain direction as the dowel would.

        I am not so sure of the grain direction issue. The grain of a dowel cut ring will be from front to back (or top to bottom) whereas the wheels I get have the grain running across the wheel. I have drilled out five hundred of these and only three broke in the process.

          Could you stack the wheels to drill them? Thicker vice jig? 500, one at a time....

          I understand the grain direction and think you are right about the strength. And yep the additional smoothing and rounding over would defeat the purpose.

            Would you please post a pic of the back side of the angel too? I comprehending assembly as well as aesthetics when I can see various angles of projects like this. Like with the pics of how you cut the wheels into halos, visual aids are really appreciated. Thank you!

              I have drilled out two at a time successfully for a while but after awhile my little jig gets worn and one on the wheels just spins so I went back to one at a time. Here is thec Angel.jpeg is the pattern I used: Side view and back view. Wings are cut separately and glued in place as are the halos. I use epoxy on the halos and white glue on the wings. The flat part on the head is where the halo glues in place. Notice the 5° angle on the bottom. This is to accommodate the balance when the weight of the

                Well Jim looking for something else I found about 20 wheels. Guess I, I mean Bruce, will have to give your method a try.
