The Soapbox Bible

Bookmark and Share

The Soapbox Bible by Julian Bridgewater is an illustrated guide to the design and construction of soapbox carties. It contains detailed drawings and step by step instructions for building a variety of carties, including "Soapbox Racer", "Dragster", "Two Man Cart" and the all time classic planks and pram wheels design that features memorably in nearly everyone's childhood.

The designs are all firmly at the low-tech end of the spectrum and would not be suitable for the more exteme events such as Cairngorm, but as a starting point for someone looking for guidelines to build something simple for their kids to trundle down the driveway or perhaps take part in the many community based events across the country it is really excellent.
