Made from 99%+ salvaged materials, even the screws on this one!
Oldest daughter -in -law wants wheelbarrow planters.
Finished first one today, 2nd is about 1/4 done.
This is just over 4 feet long and will be in Lynnwood WA on a deck. Wheel is cut on scrollsaw then sanded to cure screw-ups for a better round. The wheel is actually 8 pieces of wood.
The angle that seems to work for the handle spread is just a touch over 5 degrees.
The handle ends are rounded of by hand with an 80+ year old draw-knife! I sharpen it with a small diamond file set.
Torching is done wth a small propane torch at a fairly high flame—and all fires are extinguished immediately!
Yes, it is actually on fire a few times.
