This carriage was custom made from red oak wood for a customer who had a replica Verbruggen barrel.  The
barrel is 37" long and weighs 200 pounds.  The carriage is 26" long, 16" tall and 22" wide at the rear axle.  
My customer wanted to roll it very easily, so bearinged wheels were used on a 3/4" steel axle.

with leather buckle strap.
