This was a plan/kit that I had purchased from Rockler and it was delivered just a few days before Christmas. The recipient (the LOML ) thinks that it is wonderful and that is what makes everything all worth while.

That’s real nice but I don’t think I’ll fit in it.

Well done!

I had a “wagon” similar to this but it was built on an antique baby carriage running gear with wooden wheels you may have inspired me to make one.

Well done. Nice work. But where are the horses or mules to pull it?

Kids toy, baby carriage, garden cart, doll display, candy dish, pet feeder… one project and you covered all the bases.

Great wagon, The wagon that I made a couple years ago is getting too small. I like the side boards to keep the baby dolls in.

Again, thank you for all of the kind compliments…..the kit was not as easy as I had originally thought it would be. But the finished project did turn out to be as nice as I had hoped. As for the size it is just about the size of a full size coaster wagon. The metal parts, wheels and blueprints are what is included from Rockler. The kit is shipped directly from the manufacturer and there were two parts missing from the original shipment but one phone call and the manufacturer sent out the needed parts promptly. I tried something new for me regarding the finish…I sanded it to 1000 grit then applied a Minwax oak stain which I allowed to dry for 24 hours then put a coat of wax on it. The finish is extremely smooth….now only time will tell if the wax is enough??

Have your say...
