Our Cannon's Construction...

The Wheels

Hub with Felloes
Each Wheel comprises of seven rim sections (or Felloes), fourteen Spokes and
one Hub (or Knave). One set of fourteen spokes have been inserted into
one of the hubs.

Joining the Felloes
Jeremy and John carefully attach each of the felloes
to the spokes around the hub.

Fully Assembled Cannon Wheel
The Oak wheel has been assembled and is ready to be varnished before
the steel band/tyre is shrunk on. The Wheel is approximately
five feet (1.5m) in diameter and sixteen feet (4.8m) in circumference.
