My new daughter-in-law requested that I build a wagon as part of her wedding to our son. Our other son’s children rode in in down the aisle. It worked and didn’t throw a wheel during the ceremony….I found the pattern on the internet. It’s all red oak with the exeception of the wheels. It was my first project and it now sits in our kids living room as a planter.

Nice Job. What are the wheels made of? Pine?

Looks sto me like you learned about spokes and felloes and running gear and a reach and bolsters. I think yhou could make it as a wheelwright. Your work looks better than some I’ve seen

Great job! I would be scared to tackle making those wheels.

Hi Fred. I saw your fishing rod jig and took a look at your other projects at the same time. All really nice stuff. I especially liked the wedding wagon. Is the rod jig for finishing purchased blanks or are you making the rods too? My son finished a purchased rod blank with a jig similar to yours. I seem to remember that he used a handrill at low speed to turn the rod as he applied the finish. I’m not a fisherman, just curious, and some of those rods are pieces of art in their own right. My son wanted me to make him a split bamboo rod, but It’s too specialized, too much work, and you spend most of your time sharpening block plane blades, so I had to decline the challenge.

I love your wagon. My daughter is getting married this summer and I would love to have a wagon like this. Where can I find the plans for this wagon.

Have your say...
