Hi all

I made this ox-wagon about a year and a half ago.
And it was by far, the most fun I ever had with wood. Was a joy to make.

The entire wagon is made with sleeper wood, except the arches for the canvas, that was made with pine, and the axles is pine dowel sticks.

And also, this was my first small scale project, so I cheated a bit, I used tooth picks for the wheel spokes.
The front assembly can turn, and move up and down.

I printed a bunch of pictures of original wagons of the web, and got to work. Was a LOT of fun.

Thanks for looking.
