In the first book, Wheelwrighting a Modern Introduction, we prepared a general reference for the wheelwright trade. Anyone who decides to set up a buggy shop soon discovers that building wheels is not the only thing they are asked to do. Buggies need new poles and shafts, tops require repair and seats need to be replaced. Sometimes customers request that brakes be installed or they want a custom built vehicle such as a buckboard or a Red River Cart. While this book does return to the topic of building wheels, it's main emphasis is on the other knowledge needed to operate a wheelwright shop.
