The original tyre cross pattern could provide you with a challenge. ;)

There's a post by Chris43 Myted20 ‹ Ferguson Discussion ‹ Fergie Gallery showing a fergie on a trailer, are you talking about those tyres, if so they would be a challenge.

Made another Little Fergie this one has lugs on the tyres, I think I could have added 2/3 more lugs I've spaced them out to much.

They are works of art - do you sell them?

Hello Jack thanks for your comment I'm thinking of selling at what price I've no idea, a lot of hours goes into making them. Thanks again

They’re great. How do you make the mudguards, do you turn them and cut of the bits you don’t want, or carve them?

Unfortunately that is true. My wife makes quilts and there is no way people are willing to pay for the time and effort you put into hand making items. :sad:
Good job
Cheers, Mal.

Thanks for your comments, The mudguards are made from 3/4" thick timber cut into three pieces (you can see this in the images) to make it easy to shape on a belt sander (I fix the belt sander on it side in some frame work and use the front curve part of the sander) when all three pieces are shaped they are glued together and given a final sanding.
