This custom wagon build has been on my bucket list for a long time. I like to build wagons and there are a lot of choices of them, so why this? Hay I don’t know. But, research for it’s build was interesting. There were so many, very intricate units, I ended up with a pile of printed material. Like every wagon I build there is a different steering system and braking system used on each one. This one is a light duty spring system that should have been be a soft ride. Built here in my traveling wood shop while working in Moscow, Russia. Oh, I carved the drapery’s. Doug

Beautiful and very detailed work Doug. You could maybe title this ‘The Last Ride’ I think it’s great that you can do this work even while working in Moscow.

Nice job on your carriage!

While visiting the U.S.S.R in 1988, I visited several museums and one had a royal carriage on display. The treads of the wheels were imbedded with cork for a padded ride along with spring system. It was quite an impressive carriage. The workmanship they had is amazing!

Impressive work Doug, so much detail that looks really great. What’s equally impressive is when I read that your in Moscow with your traveling work shop doing this work. Reminds me of that old show “Paladin” ....”Have Gun Will Travel”....!

May be a bit morbid! BUT—- GREAT WORK !

Extremely nice job!

Please, take many pictures of everything in Russia and share them too as most of us will never be able to do the global explorer thing!
We will still enjoy your pictures.

This is awesome Doug. There is a collection of these types of wagons in a museum in Indiana that I’ve been to. I can’t think of the name of it right now, but, when I remember it, I’ll let you know. I even have pictures of me standing next to some of them somewhere around here.
