BJD wheelchair WIP: back wheel design

Posted on Jan 18, 2018

Base construction of the back wheel prototype for the sd-sized BJD wheelchair. Construction cardboard is arguably one of the most underrated materials ever. Easier to work with than wood or plastic, easier to acquire, and more environmentally friendly too.

Outside wooden ring: I planned on making one myself, but found out that two wooden hoops I still had lying around from an old lamp were the perfect size. Saves me a lot of time, because getting something perfectly round and balanced is no easy feat. <- this is the reason my attic is full of random could-one-day-be-used-for-something items.

Axle will be mounted on tiny ball bearings (second picture), with a centre piece in the middle of the wheel to cover the bolt.
