This is a small wheel barrow planter my son and I made this weekend. It was a fairly simple little project. He did all the cutting and measuring and him and I put it together. It took us a little over 2.5 hrs. It is made from 2×4, 2×6, 1×2, and plywood. For the wheel I glued 4 2×6s together (2 stacked on top of the other 2) and then used the bandsaw to cut it out. Then I used the drill press to cut the axle hole and chopped off 7” from an old broom handle for the axle. Connecting them to the supports with “C” shaped pipe clamps. Nothing fancy but lots of fun. Hope you like.
