My wife and I took this labor day weekend(plus a couple days) and decided to build 3 of Norm Abrams childs wagons. I still need to put some finish on them, but other than that we are going to get with the church and fill them with groceries and donate them to needy families. There was quite some work to them, but was fun and I really enjoy working with my best friend and companion. Thanks guys…..

They came out great and look like the will be very useful. How about posting a few photos of them finished and loaded up for delivery.

Great Idea Tilt. Does the wagon stay with the receiver or is it just the delivery vehicle of choice.

Thanks guys, hey WayneC, We will post pics of the wagons when finished and filled for delivery. Also, Karson, yes, the wagons stay with the person delivered to. I’ve been blessed with a great life, great friends, great family, and a wonderful, understanding wife and friend so we just want to give back a little to others.
Thanks for all your kind comments.

Great wagons!

I see you couldn’t find a pitchfork, but the rake works just as well! lol!
