John Thompson plans page 2

   These are the English style farm or work wagons and carts. Many of these plans are suitable for building a full size vehicle or they work great for models. Most of the photos or drawings below were taken from John Thompson's catalog The Carriage And Waggon Handbook which is still available for $12. 
   I only have one copy of some plans on hand but on others I have many sets. I can still get all of these plans and a few more but it may take a couple weeks to get them in stock.  S/h is $8
