1910 cart wheels

When I discovered these two small wagon wheels, the sight of them reminded me of a project I had wanted to do last summer. A seller had posted an antique peanut cart for $999, really beautiful but much too expensive.

I thought that if I had two matching wheels I could build one myself and put it at the shop with Flowers 5 Cents printed on the side. The front of the cart should be built to resemble a baby buggy, only out of wood, and the back has the basic shape of a wheel barrow.

I bid on the wheels and came out the winner, so now they are in hand and ready for my attention. I will now file them under the top ten projects I really want to do.
