These wheelbarrows are are fun to make take-offs from a plan by Bye-Gone Days. These particular pieces are about 36” long by 13” wide and about 18” tall. I use figured or birds eye kd pine, screws and contrasting plugs and finish with a combination of “MinWax” Cherry and “Thompson’s Waterseal”. They make super wheels and axles and are the friendliest people to deal with. I’ve made these and the larger vendor carts/wheelbarrows for quite a few years. They really are a great project when you are asked to donate for a charitable fundraiser. The church we go to has an annual “Sunday in the Country” with a great brunch followed by games for the kids, bake sales, door prizes as well as live and silent auctions. As a bonus, I’ve always had 3 or more requests for the offered or similar project and sometimes other furniture. After you’ve made your first one and want to make more, I strongly recommend that you build two or three at a time to take advantage of time/motion savings you get by utilizing your set ups for more than one unit.
