Restored antique wheelbarrow with art deco style

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.
