Built this little wood wheel barrow for my wife for Easter. Made the body from cedar , and the wheel is made of a solid piece of cypress. It’s a replica of a 1903 sears wheel barrow. She put Easter lily’s in it for Easter.

Great looking planter Bill. I like the backdrop for the pic also. My wife loves to take pic of old buildings, barns etc. We be going down the road and she sees one I gotta stop where she can take a pic.

Gorgeous planter Bill. Just curious, do you have a cat ? My understanding is Easter Lilies are extremely toxic to cats .

Very nice, I have a taped episode of New Yankee Workshop where Norm builds a wheelbarrow and they show several antique ones he got the ideas from. I’d like to build a replica of one of the older ones. Yours gives me the motivation I need to get started. Did you build from plans or draw it up yourself?
