Gives me something to do, Larry. Had the pieces laying about, just had to figure out what to do with them. This seemed the perfect item to build.

Kenny, just got caught up on your thread here.
Trailer is looking great, and the color scheme sounds nice too.

Glad you're happy with the turn radius. I think it'll do you well.

If the grass will dry up some, I'll get the wood cutting going for the stakes. Just can't see working with wet feet all day!

UPDATE! Deck boards have arrived. Got the first coat of paint on today! This is Rustoleum Regal Red mixed about 50/50 with boiled linseed oil. Found this works great for exterior oil based paint. Looks more like a stain, but holds for years. Second coat tomorrow will be about 75% paint/25% linseed oil. Let it dry good and install the boards.

Kenny, they look great.
If you ever want to go with a natural look on wood, we use linseed and turpentine. The Turpintine thins it so it'll soak in further.

Never though about tinting that way. Good idea!

Thanks for the tip of using paint and linseed oil. I will have to keep that in mind. I think that wagon is going to look great and it should be just in time for some hay rides.

The boards are the 5/4 X 6 treated deck boards. This does look more like a heavy stain than paint, but should add a few more years to the life of them. I may use the turpentine/linseed mix on the side boards.

I got a second coat on one side this morning. Hopefully I can turn them around noon and do the other side. I ran up to TSC and got the bolts for them. Grabbed a mower belt for the Ford and some paint for the Ford cart while there.

Kenny, I have been away for a while and you have got the wagon looking great. That red stain/paint is going to really set off that little red wagon. :thumbs:
