How to Make a Wood Scooter Part 2 of 2

July 5, 2016

Description:

This week I’m finishing up the wooden scooter build with part 2 of 2. The first thing I did was assemble the entire scooter with 5/16″ dowels. I connected the 90° angle block to the base frame with wood glue and 2- 1/4″ lag screws that are 2″ long. After all the frame and fork pieces were done drying, I sanded the entire scooter with 150 grit sandpaper and finished the scooter with Danish Oil. I rubbed this into the wood and gave it a few coats. After the finish had fully cured, I connected the forks to the frame via a 1/2″ bolt that was 5″ long. I used a total of 4 washers and a lock nut to hold everything together. The key is to use a washer between the wood so it doesn’t touch. Then put the lock nut on so it’s not tight to the wood, but the lock nut is able to stay in place without having to worry about it moving. I used a similar process for the wheels, added grip tape and it was all done! If you want to make one, check out part 1 of 2 for the shopping/cut list!
