custom wheel truing stand

Jaxon's been taking charge and respoking his bike wheels,
and somehow he's gotten lucky making them decently true.

The other day he was wrenching on the couch,
with the rim in his lap.
For some reason I had thought he was putting them together
on an upside down bike frame or something.

This particular rim wasn't going together easily,
and it was obvious he was in need of some type of truing stand.
Good thing we don't throw anything away!
The old fork they had cut off a stingray last year,
and some thick steel scrap,
is now the perfect 20" stand.

Waste not want not!
