Horse-Drawn Wagon

Made by Eric Black

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.
