how do you put spokes onto a rim?

i dont know how to put spokes onto a rim could somebody help me out here ( the rim is a 24" , 36 spokes)

I’ve found the most critical part is getting a good knot in the end of the spoke so that it doesn’t pull through the rim- two pair of pliers are required to make a good, firm knot. Make sure to squash it flat after pulling it tight. More detials may be found HERE.


For a budding wheel-builder this is an excellent site - if you plan to get serious halfords are currently selling a neat wheel trueing stand - Minola I think it’s called.
These are not nessasary but make things easier if you plan to do lots.
