A wainwright's workshop

A wainwright or cartwright is a tradesperson skilled in the making and repairing of wagons and carts. The word wainwright is the combination of the archaic words "wain" (a large wagon for farm use) and "wright" (a worker or maker). A master wainwright employs several craftsmen, including wheelwrights, blacksmiths, and painters.[1]
