The amount of sanding and puttying will depend very much on
the wood you're using. Higher grade plywood and MDF will cut more
cleanly and finish better, minimizing or even eliminating the need for
excess filling and sanding.

>This sounds like a lot of work to make sure the belt groove is smooth… All that puttying and such.
>It would seem to me to be easier to cut the belt groove in a single solid wheel after it has been assembled (and perhaps even mounted).
>As for how long it will spin, no one has mentioned what sort of bearings this thing will have.

>Cut out three pieces of plywood. The "inner" layer will be of a slightly smaller diameter than the outer layers. This is where the string will run through.
>Sand the edges of the plywood to round them over. Apply putty to fill holes so that the string won't get caught.
