I grew up in this little wagon my mother would pull us to the library and load the wagon with books and then we would walk back home and read. Over the past 25 years it has sat at in the weather and was completely rotten. I cut and measured every piece and rebuilt it from the ground up. Now my brother and his wife have it to use with their little one. I used a combination of oak and pine. I learned a lot setting everything up and there was never enough clamps.
