Single Treadle Works!

This wheel has a ways to go but at least we know that it is possible to modify our regular design and produce a single treadle machine that has all the smoothness of the other style.  Victoria wanted most of the art concentrated on the dragon and his little setting with just a bit of color elsewhere.  I put four patches of dragon scales on each wheel and also in the center of the hubs.  It is possible that the holes in the treadles will be filled with wood and given the same treatment.  I’ll see what Victoria wants.  Now I need to tear everything apart and do the final finish and other internal parts.  We’ll post pictures of the completed wheel in a few days.  Thanks for looking!
