Make Gears Out Of Wood And Timing Belts

If you're an engineer, an inventor, or just a steampunk fan you might find yourself in need of a gear for a project. Most gears are cast from steel or other metals, but you can make a simple less-durable gear using wooden rounds and an automobile timing belt.

Woodworking weblog Lumber Jocks made the gears in the above photo by gluing two layers of 1.9cm plywood together, cutting circles from the plywood, drilling mounting holes and covering the edges with a strip of a used automobile timing belt.
