I’ve made a couple of these before. One was donated to a fund raiser and another went to a friend that wanted one. I decided that we deserved to have one of our own! We’re going to use this as a barbecue server for condiments etc.)

This time I bought a better grade of pine and it went together very nicely. Saved a lot of milling too! The finish is Puritan Pine by Min-Wax mixed 5-1 with Thompson’s Water Seal.

The wheels come from Bye-Gone Workshop. They advertise in some of the wood magazines. They make good products and are very reliable.

Very nice…this looks like a fun project! How much do the wheels cost?

I’ve used Bye-Gone Workshop plans and hardware and they all were easy to follow and the project turned out great.

I haven’t done the vendor’s cart yet, but after seeing yours that will be my next one.

Very nice job on yours!

And when it’s not being used as a condiment cart, you could peddle flowers around your neighborhood !

I just checked the prices at Bygone Workshop. The 16 spoke large wheels and axles is $89.95. The large 8 spoke wheels and axles are $77 I think. Quality stuff.

I suppose wood wheels are not out of the question but labor intensive. These wheels are primo as well as the axles. Worth every cent. They have smaller for small and medium barrows. Check out their site. I’ve gotten them for years. The shipping is $10.75. Which means they’re paying for some of the cost.
Nice people too. A mom and pop operation.
