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.

Wooden Wheels

I Build new and repair wooden wheels for all types of vehicle, from a wheel barrow to a carriage. Before a wheelwright can make the wheel you first have to make the components, so the picture shows all the components that have to be made by hand to make a set of four wheels.

This set was for a Market Stall which I restored and is now back trading again repurposed from a fruit and veg stall to become a Mobile Oyster Bar, find a new modern use for a traditional vehicle.
