Topic tags/keywords: question

There is a project I have wanted to try for years. A horse drawn paddy wagon. From back in the day when prisoners were transported in a barred wagon. Has anyone seen plans for such or should I wing it. Also how hard would it be to find the “wooden horses” as I do no carving. Any tips?

Man Jeff, you’ve really got a thing for prison-themed woodworking don’t you? First the “shank-swap” and now this. ;-P

Thanks for the tips guys. I have looked on line at photos and think I can work something up. Ken, this is a prison themed project, interesting to me. I guess doing the job for 23 years and retiring soon. As for the shank swap. I voted for small part storage :).

Looking forward to your paddy wagon, Jeff. May I suggest getting the horses first, then scaling the wagon to be proportional to them?

Good idea Candy. I do no carving but I work with a guy who does. Maybe I can twist his arm. :)
