Wood Beams meets Mystery Wheel

I cleaned up the Mystery Wheel with Wood Beams. A mix of beeswax and essential oils, it is amazing stuff! I took fresh photos of the wheel. NO METAL HINGES. The hinges are leather straps. Mildew/mold on the leather had taken on a metalic tone. When I cleaned it up, I discovered leather. I love the detail. A combination of woods were used. I’ve identified bird’s eye maple, tiger oak, and perhaps walnut. What a treasure. It appears hand turned with hand carved detail. Often the detail compliments and balances a corresponding part but is not a mirror image. Quite lovely. I hope to get it up and spinning shortly. More on that later.
Oh, and P.S., I’m using the new camera. Love it!
