Wheel Building with basic power tools

Starting the second layer

Okay, hopefully you noticed that I started the first layer with the leading edge on a brace. You are going to work in the opposite direction this time, using the middle between two braces as your start. This is to give you a good clamping surface for both the start and finish. (Remember that inch I told you to leave on the back of the wheel? This is why!) When you clamp the scrap board on the starting edge, leave the first 2 inches unglued. This will need to lift a little bit when you are finishing the wheel.
