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
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.
