Wheel requires a single 1" x 4" x 10' pine board. That's it!
Here's Santa putting the wheel together.
Here's the weel with yarn in progress.

Notes: 

Sorry about the images being sideways. I'm trying to find an option for rotating pictures...This wheel requires a single 1"x4"x10' pine board and some hardware. Minimal wood working skills. If you don't want to build the spoke wheel, use a plywood or mdf round instead. See my other DIY Spinning wheel for more on that.Complete plans and construction are found here http://www.spinningdaily.com/cfs-file.as... The GROUP for this wheel, started by the inventer, is found on ravelry.com.  Has complete instructions, plans and how-to videos for this wheel.  The only changes I recommend to the original plans are to use two 4"bolts and wing nuts for the receiver and one 3 1/2" bolt for the axle.  Then make bobbins out of straws so that you can remove the spun yarn without having to remove the entire receiver or make additional spindles.
