« Part 4: Rear axle Part 5 of 20 Mule Team Borax Wagon series no next part

Starting the Box, with the frame rails and deck

All sanded up and ready for the sides

Putting on the side rails. These rails will support other parts as the project proceeds

Adding side planks up the rails

Box temporarily on the chassis to align the Brake linkage

Platform for the water barrels are mounted on beams that extend under the box
to the other side. Then iron rods are mounted for extra support

Here I have added iron rods to support the rear of the box

A rub rail will prevent the Brake lever from digging into the box
