This naval carriage I custom made for a customers replica Verbruggen barrel that is firing.
This is a You Tube video of a "Brook's USA" 24 Pounder (1" bore)
cannon firing, but "NOT" on a carriage that I built.

Texas Historical Commission opened their new museum in 2018 at the San Felipe de Austin State
Historic Site, in Sealy, TX.  They commissioned me to make a
Galloper carriage for their
Verbruggen cannon barrel.
 They have an artillery crew that will hold demonstration shootings during
the museums public events.  This video is the first shooting event with their artillery crew that I
took.

I was contacted by the Texas Navy Association to construct an 1830’s Texas Navy display.  The
location of the display is on board the aircraft carrier USS Lexington in Corpus Christi, Texas.   It
was to be an 1830’s ship board exhibit complete with a 16’ long hand rail with two gun ports.  
These gun ports sported a matched pair of my concrete cannons mounted on naval carriages complete
with block and tackle rigging.  The display and 1 minute video too can be seen here

A customer came to me asking if I would be interested in a unique project.
He had a 120 year old bronze bell that came out of a college somewhere in Central Texas.  He
needed a cart or something to use to pull the bell in parades.
I made him my design of a "Bell Limber".
