This is a work still in progress as I still have to make the “frames” for the cover, and that has got me at a stop for awhile as I still have to get the stuff for my steamer to bend the frames. This to say the least has been a slow moving project, much beyond my level of workmanship, but am hanging in there, sure should have took “Shop” instead of “Typing” in High School….Plans are from “Cherry Tree” and I have only done a few minor mod’s to get it to work….will most likely spend next several months redoing some items to make them better. Not to bad for an old guy if I say so myself.

Nicely done! The oak was a good choice for the wagon cover. You must have a lot of patience. Thanks for sharing this .

Looks like you are well on your way to a very ice little wagon.
Now you will have to carve a couple of horses. :-)

When I first noticed the picture, I thought you were building a Civil War cannon. That front half of the carriage would make a nice one.

Neat wagon!
