This was made from repurposed cedar and siding.

The wheel is several pieces, made that way for appearances. Customer wants a rustic appearance.

All salvage wood—new nails and screws though.

About 5 feet long 16” wide and the wheel is 10”

Any curve was cut on the scrollsaw, many other shop tools had a bit in the construction also. Even some hand filing with a rough rasp.

The torching sets off the grain and adds an antique look too.

I have a sort of pattern that I made as I went and several photos. I am photo short on this site, because I have to open—resize—- re-save—and then hope they will upload.

I can email photos if someone wants more details.

Your wheelbarrow looks right at home in this setting. Very nice work, especially the torch work to make the grain pop.

You really outdid yourself this time, salvaging all that wood. Great job and will serve the purpose well. where is the snow.

Mr. EVERYTHING Master! To answer the question about that 4 letter we really should not say! You have that white Stuff! I prefer it that way! I spent enough effort fighting the snow when I lived in ND!

The recycled timber has come up very well and I love the wheelbarrow..
I’ve seen people use old run down ones as planters , some without much character but yours looks great…
No snow downunder, just a hot summer….
