Absolutely amazing! I’m inspired by the thought of the original craftsmen that built these and you for your commitment to restore them. We aren’t building anything now that will even last to be restored, it’ll all go to a garbage dump to be buried. Thanks for the work you do!

Your carriage came out great . I have a chassis simular to the one you have hear . When i aquired it is in rough shape . There is only one piece of wood left that is so far the only template I have to start the project . My chassis is in good solid shape but everything else needs a lot of love . Any pointers send them this way thanks Joe
