The wheelchair

I have created the basic structure of the robot's wheelchair from chemiwood. I heat bent the top of the seat to give the back of the chair a sloping back. I now plan to pad the seat and back with a layer of foam and then cover in leather. However I am still unsure as of yet to which leather effect I want to use.

The wheels I have created through laser cutting the basic pieces, sticking them together and using milliput to sculpt detail on them to make them look more authentic as wheels with spokes that flare out as they join the outside wheel, like the image of the train wheel below.
