Absolutely great! As a fellow scratch wagon builder I appreciate the work going into this. I now have a large wagon on my bucket list thanks to you. I am thinking a Birdsell style, I built a smaller one a long time ago. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/54763

Looks absolutely wonderful and your attention to detail is over the top. I especially like the wheels as these are the most authentic I’ve seen on a model so far. I hope we see more of this kind of thing from you in the future.

Great job! One question : with all that white oak, do you have any idea how much the wagon weighs ?

That looks fantastic. Everytime I see a stagecoach like yours I reminded how much effort it requires and then when they were built years ago the effort that went into making a stagecoach in 1850 !!

I second your recommendation to view Engels Coach Shop on You Tube. Very inspiring.

Thanks for posting your project.

-- I can see the cheese heads from here and it is great.
