54. Don’t forger ti weld the vertices by using the “Target Weld” tool. Weld the vertex A to vertex B



55. Do the same thing for each spoke until you will have the same result as below :


56. Now we are closing the middle hole. Use “border” to select the entire hole’s edge. If every vertex is welded, with a single click, you should be able to select the entire border. Then use the scale tool and the shift button to create extra polygons and close the hole



57. We are almost done. We just need to chamfer these edges, which are selected in the next image, then we will check to see if there are any triangles :



58. And here you have the last step : chamfer the edges from the first image then add 2-3 rows of new edges like in the second image :
