This old wheelbarrow needed some help, as you can see in the last photo. The wood was rotted and the metal tub was rusted through at the bolts. I reused all the metal except for the tub. All the wood was old stuff that was laying around the shop. I used softwood so it would be as light as possible. The sides are 1/4” plywood and can be removed for carrying large items. I carved the handles for comfort and added some art deco styling for interest.
