16 Year Old Builds Working Wooden Bike


Marco Facciola built an entire bike out of wood, chain and all, in his spare time.
I reserve the following word for special occasions: Flabbergasting!

Go Marco!

The best part in the article is how he talks about only having one cheap set of drill bits and how he had to use them both carefully and sparingly, only removing a bit of wood at a time, then backing off and rubbing a bit of soap onto the bit, which both cooled and lubricated it.

Marco, you smart. And thrifty.

What an inspiration.
