Is that from the old Mechanic’s Illustrated encyclopedia plans? I remember seeing one much like it there many years ago.
Beautiful job recreating a bit of western history!

That is just too cool! The only thing to top that would be to carve some horses? Thanks for the post.

It is about 12” long excluding the tongue ,about 30hours invested including screw-ups. I think the plans were from cherry-tree. Thank you for your commentsRay

Ray, I would have guessed a lot more than 30 hours. I know it would have taken me a LOT more than that and it would not have looked as nice.
