    Default Reuben and Tiki Kulp's work

    They get mentioned over and over.... I thought it's time we start a thread for pieces made by the Kulps, and hopefully Tiki herself may jump in with comments and more photos.

    This Meadowbrook Cart was made by Reuben in 2010/2011. They have refined them even more since then, but we received this one recently on consignment and it is still gorgeous despite its age and having been transported by mail a few times. Before someone asks - I know you will! - The model pulling it is a BHR Resin Drafter. He's between Classic and Traditional size, so we're considering him a large draft pony while he models this for us.

    When Reuben sold this cart, his description of it says it is made entirely of hardwood, with bent hickory fenders, cross-bar and single tree. He used over 65 nuts and bolts at a cost of $20, and each wheel, imported from England, cost him $20 (back in 2010). I really enjoyed his detailed description!

    His description also says the seats hinge up like the real thing to make entry into the cart easier. Darn, I missed that part when we had it out for its photo session. Neat!

    I purchased a Budweiser harness set from Tiki at Breyerfest in 2016. This year I ordered a wagon and it just arrived this week. I love it!
