Oregon Field Guide

Wagon Maker


Everett Mezentine is an 87-year-old who puts in 12-14 hour days farming. When that’s done, he makes horse-drawn wagons. This Wamic farmer is one of the last craftsmen of carriages and wagons in Oregon. He does it all by hand, even harvesting the trees for the wood from his own land. The entire process takes years and his wagons aren’t cheap, but the orders keep coming.
