You asked, and finally it's here! Joseph put together a full assembly video for the Good and Basic 3D-Printed Spinning Wheel. This video is for the complete kit, but you should be able to follow along once you get the parts together for the partial kit, as well.
The colors featured in this tutorial are blue and bronze. If you're ordering a spinning wheel, keep in mind that the primary color includes all of the parts except for three spokes and three bobbins. The three spokes and three bobbins can either match the primary color, or they can form a secondary "pop" color, like the wheel pictured below.
The wood in this tutorial is unstained. I'd highly recommend painting it before you begin assembly for a finished look. I have, however, painted wheels after assembling them, and it turns out fine. It's kind of like putting on mascara after the eye shadow. It's doable, but a step-by-step process helps. Like I said before, I favor dark stain, but a nice cherry stain with red wouldn't hurt. You could also use a toll paint with a light coat of modge podge, or even just let it wear for a shabby-chic look.
In conjunct with the video, you can also draw on the written instructions. The instructions include a full parts list, as well as step-by-step instructions for assembly. This is the most recent version as of 12.11.2021. The most, most recent version you can find on the Instructions page.
