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.

Very nice ! I like the use of the Oak.
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:

The Dalmatian dog is fast and agile adopted by fire dept. because it would nip at the horses ankle's back in the horse drawn day's got them to run faster.

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.
