Welcome to the Rafter K Wheelwright website where wheelwright Randy Kirschner demonstrates that he has the "wright stuff". While it may seem that a wooden wheel and buggy repair business is a return to a bygone era, Randy offers the following explanation:
"More people are choosing to have horses. Driving horses was once part of a hard life on the farm. Now we are driving for pleasure. Wagon treks, sleigh rides, chuckwagon races and pleasure driving are once again becoming commonplace. The automobile might have hampered the horse-drawn industry, but it certainly did not destroy it."
