Wheelbarrow (on the cheap)

I needed a wheelbarrow to move a yard of sand out of my pickup and around the corner to the chicken coop I just built. (to follow). I don’t really use one enough to justify spending $100 so I threw this together in Sketchup, bought a wheel from Harbor Freight and a 5/8” threaded rod from Lowe’s and used the scrap wood from the coop. $25 later I have a great barrow. and the sand was a breeze.

-- Measure Twice, cut two, three times, plane, join, sand, coat, sand, coat, sand, coat, buff, wax, polish, brag. It's a process.

Nice looking wheelbarrow, and I like the way you have your apprentice getting trained as a driver. Keep him
involved, in a few years he might surprise you. Thank you for sharing.
