Well I figure it should make an excellent glass top table (man style). Im going to estimate the rim is a 15X7.

Almost looks like it has some sort of wire wheel type lock on hub. As nice as it is wonder if it was made for show car.

Actually 5 of the 10 nuts are just sitting in there, they are lug nuts for a 5X4.5 bolt pattern.

Pirahna Manufacturing, Romoland, CA made wood spoke wheels for modern cars. Ebay had a listing for 14 x 7 - Chevrolet 5 lug pattern. This is probably one of their wheels, only larger. Not sure if they're still in business or not.

Actually it is about 30 years old and was made by my Dad. When tested they were found to not withstand the tested stress. The steel rim would cut the end of the spokes or so goes the story as I was told. It seems that on a narrow tire the tire will slide before the wheel falls apart, although I often wonder how a period wheel would compare when put to the same stress test.
