    Well thinking of building a wooden bike. I have seen several interesting creations, and much of the wood working really doesn't look to be that hard.

    Yet the bottom bracket is one place that I would be a bit stumped. Can you just use a hole saw that is the right size, and then slip the bracket through that. The frames I have seen with the bracket not installed do not appear to be treaded. Is there anything in there that I would have to thread to make this happen and work properly?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I would get a bottom bracket shell, preferably steel, and drill out the bottom bracket area of your frame to accept it.
