Build it Easy. Work it Hard. Love it Forever. Welcome To The Whizbang Garden Cart Blog...

The Whizbang Garden Cart is a homemade outdoor utility cart modeled after Lyman P. Wood’s famous Garden Way Model #26. The distinctive #26 is considered by most people to be the best garden cart design ever made.

Although the Garden Way company went out of business years ago, several companies now make their own versions of the old Model #26. But a decent quality factory-made cart will cost you dearly. That’s the situation that led me to develop plans for a homemade version of Garden Way’s famous utility cart.

This blog introduces you to the cart I developed. The following links will take you to many photos and stories about the Whizbang Cart. My hope is that you will be inspired to build your own cart by following the easy-to-understand plan book I’ve put together. The $14.95 (postage paid) book, titled Anyone Can Build A Whizbang Garden Cart, is a complete how-to manual with 45 pages and 75 illustrations.

Here is an index with links to all of the articles (and pictures) currently on this blog:
