I have a want to make a pushbike out of marine grade plywood.
As a result, I will need to fix things like bottom brackets and steering shafts to the plywood.
Now, I am no woodworker - this is a part of my want to make things like the canoe mentioned previously.
So I have no idea what is required to bond a steel round shaft into the plywood frame.
For those who don't know, the bottom bracket is where the pedals go through - it is basically a pipe with a bearing at either end through which the pedal crankshaft passes, and the pedals are attached either end.
The steering shaft is the same basic thing, but it runs up and down.
I will also need to attach the rear wheel and gear shift derailleur into the rear frame - the rear wheel fits into a slot either side of the rear frame, so that will have to be reinforced somehow.
Does any of that make sense?
Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated, but type slowly please - I know nothing about this stuff.
(I might just kill myself on this bike, considering the skills I currently have with woodworking )
