This is a Concord Buggy from the late 1800’s. Woodworking involved included replacing one side of the body, several spindles on the seat and the curved uprights that support the seat and alot of scraping and sanding. The owner wishes to paint it on his own

It looks good. I see you have a Shopsmith in the background, I hope it was helpful. Mine was most useful as a disk sander, horizontal boring machine, and as beginner lathe. Still, I miss it.

I don’t use the Shopsmith anymore after moving from my 12’ by 12’ basement to a 20’ by 40’ shop. I now have room for alll of my equipment which was in storage for 2 years! The Shopsmith was ideal in an small shop!
