Not much of a wood project, but it sure was fun. My granddaughter was coming to visit and we wanted to throw an early b-day party since we wouldn’t see her on the actual day which BTW is today. Anyway we put this all together so fast and realized that we really didn’t have any money left over for a present, given the fact that me and the wife don’t have full time jobs (wow the economy sucks). So 5 days b4 she is supposed to get here for her party we decide to take my sons old wagon and refurb it. We had been talking about it for some time but never got serious.
I ended up getting some actual paying work the same week so it made even less time to finish this (jeez can’t a guy catch a break LOL). Ok so the 3rd pic is after i spent a couple of hours pulling all the rusted pieces apart. Now i’m a wood worker not a metal man so after i did this i tried sandblasting and that didn’t seem to work so i pulled out the angle grinder with the wire brush. Mann i’m just not good at metal work oh well I guess i know my place in life hee hee.
The second pic is after all that and now its the base coats of paint. First pic is all done, the wife sewed a pillow to let our sweet little princess sit in style, and of course the last pic is the b-day girl loving her new ride.
Hope you enjoy and have a great day… Doug
