Border Collie is Ready to Herd!

August 15, 2013

I felt it was necessary to keep the woodwork simple so as not to compete with the art.  Sorry for the indoor photos.  Usually we haul the new wheels to some place interesting to photograph them but today we have rain.  The  dusty shop had to double as photo studio.  Thank you, Jan, for letting me build this fun wheel for you and I hope you enjoy it for a very long time!
