Hand Carts using Hirst Arts Doors and Floor tiles

Once again I found myself waiting for paint to dry and nothing to do but fiddle-fart around with random things on the workbench.  It occurred to me that some of these gear casts could make nice wheels.  Here we go!

First thing I needed to do was file off the teeth.  This is much quicker with a rotary tool.

Next I used an awl to scratch wood grain lines across the face of the disc:

I used the door pieces from the water cavern wall mold and filed off the base on one side (I used red paint to show the area to be removed for clarity):

I used the awl again to scribe wood grain into the newly filed area:

I added the wood floor tile and ramp from the cavern accessories mold.  Then I painted, washed and drybrushed everything.

Then I assembled the pieces like this:

I cut an axle out of a bamboo skewer and attached the wheels:

I added two more bamboo pieces for handles:

These are perfect little add-ons that will help detail a scene and easy enough to build that anyone could get a dozen or so in a couple of evenings worth of work.

I hear the sound of a market just around the corner…
