Very nice.Next time do the wheels yourself.If they don't turn out perfect it will still be a great learning experience and you will enjoy it even with a bit of aggrevation.

Fabulous restoration! Betting you will never find one of those in a "big box" store or HF. What are you going to do with it other than keep the neighbors away? Thanks for sharing, and be safe.

You should give us the history on the canon. I'm guessing before WW1?
Restored, what is the value?
Is it functional or has the fuse hole in the barrel been closed?

sorry guys it was a machinist that made the barrel and some one helped make the carriage they just used 2x lumber not treated or anything ----- we rebuilt a carriage to original specks as close as we could we had the original plans to go by.the trick to building it is look at all the holes in the wood------ some cross with in only a 1/2 "
