Hi all.
Always kinda liked the Ledge caravans, and had a pile of wood, which included these awesome wardrobe doors.
Used mostly sourced timber, and scrap metal.

Had some seating slats, which were conveniently curved, so used metal straps, and carbon fibre plates, for rear suspension.
These sit in two recessed blocks, which are bolt through base.
The axle, cut block in half, chiseled out groove to hold metal shaft,epoxied back together, pinned to springs, then used thread bar to hold wheels.
Wheels are bolted, epoxied, + metal tubes.
Figure on replacing wheels with bearings/ fiberglass.

Found quite a few useful pieces in collection, and some wooden flowers on Ebay. Lions head molded myself, hay-rack hinged on two L brackets, chains to caravan housing, used antique type drawer handles.
The decorative strips, used knife to cut notches, then paper held around piece of dowel.

Posts at front are temporarily pegged, both spiral in opposite directions.
Used CF plates/ bolts to join yokes to front turn table.
Used items personal to person made for, (gift) to decorate front.
