For many years now I have been honing my joinery skills and proud to say that I am now a time served wheelwright, I was tutored by one of the original and England’s best, Michael Collishaw of Newark England.

I have made several different variety on the theme including a posh half size for her in doors plant pots to sit inside of, here are the pictures below.

What I like about the Amish style is the removable sides which basically turns it into a single wheel flat cart, it can also be used like a sack barrow by holding onto the bottom of the led and placing the items on the font board.

The half size model is made from Rosewood and teak with a true wheelwright wheel from apple fellows, English holly naff and reclamed Russian oak spokes, but it not allowed into the garden, I got asked where I was taking it when I took her outside to photograph it.

Absolutely amazing work. Great that you are keeping this fantastic design alive. It looks like a very versatile barrow. Thanks for sharing it with us.

She gets a lot of use in the garden and no punters to worry about and when she’s done it can supply a few terms in the old woos tone.
