Default Re: I wish I could build one of these

A timber technology student ,Jens Eichler has designed a wooden Bicycle from beech tree wood .He got himself some sheets of beech plywood, along with a strong glue (phenol-resorcinol) and some power tools.

The bicycle isn't all wood. Many of the components are made of steel, and the tires are rubber, as on any standard bike. Individual components include an eight-speed hub and a 120-millimeter disc brake. And it's no lightweight--this first effort tips the scales at a ponderous 52 kilograms (114 pounds).
