Here is an additional accessory to the Richard Pincombe's fabulous castle. The ox cart is similar to many ox carts used in the middle ages. The carts were favorites with farmers, merchants and the military. My grandfather farmed with oxen like these and had two giant pets named Bill and Bess. He used them for pulling stumps and for dragging logs, large stones and other heavy loads.

He used a coil spring from an old car chassis at the end of the tug chain right before the big cast iron hook. The oxen often hesitated if they couldn't get a large load to budge. So my grandfather tricked them into continuing to pull by adding the car spring. They would feel it give a little and then throw their entire weight and strength into the load. They loved working with grandpa but were easily discouraged if the big loads wouldn't budge as soon as they threw their weight into it. They each weighed about a ton and could do unbelievable things around granpa's farm.

The PDF below is a full size royalty free plan set. Make as many wood toys from the plan set as you like for any reason. Enjoy!

Very nicely done.

What are the notches in part 7 for?

The notches are for bungee cord, rubber bands or heavy string when tying down cargo.

Thought that might be the case but I might have missed something.

King Arthur had bungee cords. Who knew? [biggrin]

I like that many of these castle accessories can be made with scraps. 

BadBob - didn't you study about the King Author bungee cords in school.
