Building a farm wagon

| January 2008

I really enjoyed Sam Moore's article on farm wagons in the July 2007 issue of Farm Collector, and had to tell you about my wagon project.

I'm about 90 percent finished building a John Deere farm wagon. It is 1/3-scale and I am duplicating every part, using yellow pine for the bed, white oak for the sides, cast irons skeins, hickory and oak wheels, tires, sweat on, etc. I'm hoping it will be a nice show piece. I'm to a point now of painting the running gear red. I need to make springs for the seat and a tailgate that opens. I have seen a lot of goat carts, but nothing like mine. I enjoy Sam's column and the magazine in general. I have a fleet of restored John Deeres and also Cushman scooters.
