This is the wagon from of this firing. I don't think I'll add the draw hitch or the ladder; I like it the way it is. One axle is longer than the other. I read the front axle was sometimes purposefully constructed shorter so the wagon would turn better in tighter spaces.
This wagon is light as a feather. I'm wondering if I had to mail it somewhere, how I would pack it so it wouldn't break? Those uprights are thinner than a pencil.
I've been calling these rustic pieces carts but maybe they're wagons? Which would you think? I looked it up and it seems carts have two wheels and can be draught (animal) pulled or pulled by human power. Wagons have four wheels and originally were draught (animal) pulled. I'm doing more research on carts and wagons which has led me to learning about some ancient civilizations. I'm endlessly curious and love learning.
So the more delicate looking pieces I've been calling carts are wagons and the bulky looking pieces are carts. This is the cart from this firing where the wheel fell off. I have it temporarily taped on to show you, but I'll glue it on later this week. I could have the wheel lying down and a log or a hitch holding up the cart. Maybe I'll do that for the next one.
Last night I was watering the front flower bed and I was scooting by an obstacle in the driveway. I tripped and fell across the brick edged flower bed and hit both of my legs across the bricks which are about eight inches high and wide. My shins were knocked against the hard, unforgiving brick. Then to make matters worse my face fell into the sprinkler. I landed in an awkward position to get up and the sprinkler was practically blinding me with water. Today the front of my legs are killing me; when I walk I can feel my bruised bones aching. At least I didn't break anything, I don't need any more medical bills. I'm bringing some work to a gallery near Tampa; I guess I'll be limping in there. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
