Eric Black from Hinton, Alberta, designed and made this wagon after studying photos in books and on the internet.

He’s always been drawn to horse-drawn vehicles and their construction, as well as projects that are different from the norm. The wagon is made of 1 x 6 and 2 x 6 mate­rial, as well as various types of metal. Working with the metal provided the biggest challenge for Black, who’s more comfortable in a wood shop. Black made the wagon over two months worth of spare time, for a fundraising event in Niton Junction, Alberta.
