I am in the process of building a mini hay wagon and cant seem to find a decent floor pattern. ive gotten my frame and everything built i just cant seem to figure out a good way to make a good floor. does anyone have a picture of what they used for a floor? id like to make sure its sturdy enough i can actually use it to haul things but still look decent.

I would stay away from plywood. Planks like 2x pressure treated would work good. I used them on my utility trailer but I cut half lap joints on each piece the whole length so nothing would fall through like loose dirt etc. 5/4" deck boards would be another choice. The best but pricey would be sheet metal over marine grade plywood. Keep us updated.

I used the 5/4 deck boards on mine. I left a gap between boards as I don't use it for dirt.

Thanks, the Oak came from our farm, our renter has an old circular sawmill & sawed the logs for me.  I air dried the lumber for a few years, then before planing, I put some boards overhead in the shop for a while.

 

The wagon is scaled from a JD 953, which were the ones Dad had when I was growing up:

Here are some photos of one of my brothers racks as a reference for you. There are several ways to build a rack this is just one of them. I just happened to have these on the computer as we have been trying to sell the racks. Do a search using "hay rack wagon" and see what comes up, I did and lots of info came up.

I made one using an old Wheel Horse frame from an B-series lawn tractor.  Some angle iron and some used decking boards.  Most expensive part was the varnish!   Rick
