Entering the workshop, the scene is as one would expect. In the middle of the space are various sized pieces of lumber waiting to be assembled into a full-scale Red River cart. Under the work table are smaller pieces to assemble a single wheel. In a corner sits the other wheel measuring approximately five feet across. Lumber is stacked against the back wall with a set of doors, and lining the shelves are milk crates, boxes and tools of different colors.
