Czech handcarts - All three of these carts employ bicycle- type wheels which are held within welded steel frames. The two on the left utilize horizontal frames affixed to the body frame at either end. This type of construction can be readily translated into wood. The cart on the right, employs vertical frames (closed on top and open on bottom) to carry the wheels. (This type of vertical open-ended frame cannot be readily duplicated in wood.)
