THE WHEEL BARROW

MADE FROM OFF CUTS OF 6 X 1X 3/4 GRAVEL BOARD. AND 3X2 TANALISED TIMBER OFF CUTS. THESES WERE 3 AND 4 FT LENGHTS. SOME DAMAGED. BUT All WAS NEEDED IS TO SQUARE UP AND PLANED ALL ROUND.BEFORE I GLUED TO TOGETHER TO MAKE 12 INCH PLANKS.ONCE THIS WAS DONE THE REST WAS EASY. ALL PIECES I MAKE ARE AS I WORK ALONG.AS IF I STUCK TO A DRAWING I DID IT WOULD BE CHANGED SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE.AS IDEAS COME TO MIND AS YOUR MAKING THESE.THE WHEEL WAS TURNED ON LATHE.THE PAIR OF HANDLES WERE MADE FROM THE 3X2.BOTH 3X2 CLAMPED TOGETHER BEFORE I JIGSAWED THE BASIC SHAPE.THEN WORKED ON HANDLES TO MAKE MATCHING PAIR.ONCE ALL PIECES WERE MADE I THEN ASSEMBLED THE BARROW.USING WOOD GLUE AND STAINLESS STEEL SCREWS AND MATCHING PLUGS WHICH I USED A PLUG CUTTER ON THE OFF CUT OF TIMBER. THIS WAS STAINED USING LIGHT BROWN TANALISED WOOD PRESERVER.ONCE DRIED THEN OILED WITH BOILED LINSEED OIL FOR ALL WEATHER PROTECTION..IDEAL FOR A SHOW PIECE IN YOUR GARDEN THIS SUMMER OR A PLANT DISPLAY  PIECE.AND ALL MADE FROM OFF CUTS.
