Starting a new project and hoping it turns out ok. If all goes well we will be able to call it a barrel train and it will haul the little ones around at the Roots Tractor Show and perhaps other places. Here are some pictures of progress so far. Please be kind to me on the comments about my messy garage.

Glad to finally have the opportunity to pull our weight Don! Enjoyed spending a few hours with you today, and working as a team. First time use for Caleb using the plasma cutter and grinder, and I think he did us both proud! 

However, he is still talking about using the plasma cutter, and is still trying to talk me into buying one of our own! He started bragging to his mom when we got home, and was in the middle of telling her how good he was using it, when she busted his bubble by asking, "I have no idea as to what you are even talking about."   :D

Great job guys, looks like you have a great plan and plenty of help. I'm sure they will  be a big crowd pleaser in June.

Plasma cutters are great it's like cutting butter with a warm knife. Been years since I've  used one.

Would never ever comment about a dirty garage Don that just means there being used. I do like the metal table top for fabricating and projects. Looks like a nice set up there you have

Troy it's good to see a father son project like that. So many kids these days show little or no interest in that type of work and when we were young it was a right of passage and you begged to help.

I got a little bit done last night however I must confess to getting a bit lazy this evening. I think between the rainy day and being on the concrete floor at work and in the garage at home my back is getting punished. Anyway here is the little bit I did get done. Their is also a second frame finished but not pictured.

Glad you guys are making good progress on them. We got some of one frame built so far. I started to cut the opening out of one of the barrels and it smelled pretty bad so I set it outside. I can tell you that cutting the opening with a jigsaw sucks. LOL.

I was able to complete the frames minus paint tonight. Still need to smooth the openings in the barrels and mount the steering wheels. Curious to see how you guys are mounting them?

Here is a couple of pics I took of the frames. I think we will end up having the low riders out of the bunch LOL.
