interesting and diverse
I had been searching for just such a project and was glad when I
discovered your site. One or things need to be ironed out if this
is being made in the UK.
Fence palings are what the Brits call Gravel boards and are
available from Wickes. Just make sure when you buy them they are
perfectly dry, they are stored outside because they are used for
outside projects - logical really.
I printed all the details and started work with a couple of small
modifications due the available timber size available in the UK.
The Wheel was cut and stuck using what we call "No more
nails" - do not use this for this project it don't stick. Use
waterproof PVA or Evostick and make sure that the garage is warm (
do not try to do this in the winter because the wheel still falls
apart after 3 days of being glued and clamped).
wheel was complete and when cut out was tapered toward one side
because the blade in the jigsaw had flexed on the way in. Either
drill a pilot hole before starting to cut the wheel out or use a
table scroll saw.
All the other bits went together well, just make sure that when
you lay up the bottom tray you leave approximately 5mm between
each plank to ensure that the tray fits snugly along the lower
section of the side panel.
Also pipe saddles are called saddle clips in the UK and you get
them from Homebase in the plumbing section.
I look forward to my next project.

but we were up to the task. Marvellous.
