About Alan Paulus

Wheelwright / Wainwright / Cooper As a wheelwright I build new and repair old wooden wheels. These are for carriages, market carts, cannons, vintage cars, wheelbarrows and most recently bicycles. Anything that uses a wooden wheel. Having built the wheel I can then go on to build the carriage or cart. This year I have expanded my range to include domestic Cooperage - wooden buckets and items for the home. Whilst cooperage for the drink industry is a viable craft the domestic side has been in decline. I am producing wooden buckets based on Historical designs. All the timber I use for wheels and buckets is sourced direct from local sawmills.

Market Carts

As a wheelwright / wainwright I work on any wheels or vehicle that comes through the door, but if I have a speciality its market Carts. Whether it be the 2 wheel Costermonger / Market Porter style, or the 4 wheel Market Stall. I find the history fascinating – Tradition has it that the Owners name and the market it was to be used is carved on the wheels and chassis, a tradition I am delighted to continue on both new carts, and restored carts.

I am delighted to see that carts I have built or restored are finding new uses. I have supplied carts that are used as Mobile Bars, Buffet Carts, Oyster Bars, a Burger Stall, Retail displays and film props.

I usually have a couple of carts in stock and if I dont have what you want I can build it for you.
