I am getting ready to respoke my 21 depot hack and want to do a natural finish on the wood because of the wood on the hack will lot nice against the wood side finish of ash and pine now the question stutzmans wood will it require a lot of work to finish natural sanding and whatever and whats his price range on the last that anyone purchased delivery time also
You will not have to do any sanding to finish Stutzmans wheels. They are superbly finished when you get them.
Depending on size and needed parts they cost about $160 each.
Stutzmans spokes are ready to finish. You may prefer to do some light sanding but I didn't have a need to. I paid $7.00 per spoke for 21" wheels and it took about a week to receive them. Excellent product in every respect.
When I got my wheels back from Noah Stutzman, they were already nicely sanded and the bare wood was a thing of beauty.
I rubbed in some stain with a cloth and brushed on about nine coats of varnish, gently sanding between coats.
Here are my "S" wheels that Noah Stutzman did years ago. Fantastic workmanship !
It might be a good idea to tell the make you intend to clear finish the wheels. That way they can select away from the odd pink spoke which turns up in some hickory.
