Chandelier made from horse powered treadmill flywheel

     I had this 5'-0" wide flywheel that came from and old horse powered farming treadmill and made it into a rustic chandelier. 
Below is an image of a similar wooden flywheel used in my chandelier above.  
Image cf.
     There's twenty-one lights hanging from the wheel - I uses mason jars for the globes. I had my nephew up to help with the wiring of the fixture.  I painted the wiring and box to blend in with the wheel. 
     Wish i didn't have such a busy back ground that's not so busy to  show up the lamp better. But its over the top.
