Making a bicycle wheel picture frame.
Hello this is Craig from Capn America Projects. So this is our latest project. It is a family
portrait made out of a bicycle wheel and this is a sheet of metal.
This is a picture I ordered from an online company. It was already cut to this nice shape.
Then I took an old wheel from a road bike and what I did here is I took the spokes and
I drilled holes in the picture and bent the spoke through, ran it back up then I used
a wrench to bend it around the top to hold it pretty sturdy. What I did to make these
all correct is first i laid this on a table I centered it and then I measured how far
it needed to go to each hole and then I bent the spokes at a 90 degree angle. So what it
looked like when it was laying on its back. The spokes ran from the wheel and then they
were all sticking straight up. And then I put the picture down over them, I had to kind
of adjust each one to get it in. And then once it was on all of the spokes I took my
wrench and I bent it back around. And then I cut off the excess and then bent it over
the edge. That holds it pretty secure. Then for their name, this is actually a for sale
sign (a metal one like they have for cars). Then I used some snips and I cut out (first
I drew it then I cut it out). The name is Standley. I made it all connect so it looks
kind of rugged looking. This family is really in to biking. They ride bikes all the time
so they will really like this. I used this chain to hang the name and drilled a couple
of holes to hang it. It kind of free swings there. Anyway that’s the bicycle picture frame.
