Your carriage restorations look like they are extremly intricate and time consuming. Very interesting. Are these for your collection?

That’s a great restoration. I think it’s unique that you and your father opened a Carriage restoration/woodworking shop. Sounds like a great blend of businesses.

What a very cool project to work on. I’d really like to see it in action with the horse and a few passengers. Nice restoration, interesting project to say the least.
