Constructing a Doctor's Buggy - Part 4 - The Box

Today I constructed the "Box" of the Piano Box Buggy.  While it might look simple there are a lot of angles to cut and sand to get the seat to look just right.  I mounted it to the chassis with some brass strips secured at the front and back spring assemblage.  So, it's actually suspended just like a full sized buggy.  Oh....I decided the back wheels were just too large so I made some new ones which look much better.  The only thing left now is the two shafts that support the horse and harness. 

Next up is the canopy and then the final painting then it's on to carving the horse and doctor.  Fun!

  1. The Buggy is looking real good. I really like how you did the springs. I'm looking forward to seeing it complete! Thanks for sharing your talent with the world. I for one sure appreciate it.
