I discovered this cart back then in the South Holland Islands: Dirksland, to be exact. It was taking up too much space at a dyke house.
Because I like tinkering, I took it with me in semi-darkness.
Seen in daylight, I realised it was quite a challenge. Restoring no longer was an option. All in all, it has now become a low-budget replica.

The bottom and underside are now of acacia wood. The walls and container are made of one piece of old cheeseboard. The fittings are still original, brushed and painted in a nice colour green, I think. The leaf springs are welded and fitted with new buses. It had corroded car wheels. These have been replaced by wheels from a recreational cart because they were of similar size and the connection fitted well. Only the sign and the mudguards are still original. The suspension of the board is ironwork entirely of my own imagination.
