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?

Thanks, guys for the comments. Dewayne the barn where the picture was taken is in my back yard it was here when we bought the place.
Ron I had never heard that about cats, and Easter Lilies and no I don’t have cats.
notnow I used plans off the internet I found I think the site was Runner Duck .com
