I built this old style spoke wheel wheel barrow a few months back. All cypress. Was a fun project. I learned a lot about building jigs. The wheel required about 5 different jigs. I want to build some larger wheels when I get time.

Beautiful job. I’d love to have that in my garden. How about a wheel making blog?

Very nice looking wheelbarrow. I’ve been fiddling with making wheels and am finding that there’s more involved with the wheel than the barrow. Good job, and I’ll second the wheel making blog.

Great looking finish job. Where did you get the pattern? How hard was the wheel to build?

Thanks DB,
Yep, she’s a cool pup. If I could just break her from wanting to kill my chickens and rabbits. But, being a Jack Russell, that ain’t gonna happen. They just gotta kill something.

I love that wheelbarrow and it looks like you did an exceptional job on those wheels. Congratulations.
