Flowers Wheelbarrow

January 31, 2018 Leave a comment

Project Name: Flowers Wheelbarrow
Start Date: 7/1/2018
End Date: 24/1/2018
Working hours: 1 hours daily (not working in weekends)

Drill || Screws/Nails || Saw | Gloves || Wood || Sander or Sander paper || Measure || Pencil || Paint

Wheelbarrow Size:
You have to decide the size of the Wheelbarrow you want to build, this will give you an idea of how much wood and Nails you may need. I use a old wood pallet in my yard; the disassembling it was not easy.

Wood pallte After Disassembling

Sketches: First thing to start with..
Start with some Sketches, Here is my fast sketch of this Flowers Wheelbarrow i start with fast lines then add the measures and dimensions, the image here before the measures.

Fast Sketches of the Wheelbarrow parts

To create the wheel:
I draw a circle on a paper (diameter is important) glue it on a 2 pieces (5″ diameter, 2.5cm-thick ) wood strips from the pallet, and cut-off.

Needs more sandpaper

Wheelbarrow Side:
You need two pieces for the side, I cut the upper side in curve to give it some design.

Fixing everything: re-assembling
After fixing all parts you will get something like this, also I apply the sander machine on all the parts to make it smooth.

I am using the Dark Walnut (code: PPF-51 or #4e3d36) color.


Final looks
This is the final look of my Flowers Wheelbarrow still did not paint it, i may keep it like this.. am not sure.

Don’t throw out any remaining parts of what you are cutting, you may need it for this project or for other once.


The Bonsai experiment -3

January 19, 2018 1 comment

Back to my “Bonsai experiment” Follow-up post #3.

Today is 3 weeks from starting this project …

After 8 days of putting the Pots in the Plastic Bags I notes that some seeds in bag 2 (Mountain Pine -Pinus Mugo Pumilio) start to germinate with a small green head showing it self. I am very exciting .. and don’t know what to do now 🙂 … and also What to do with other (non germinated) Pots.

So after 3 weeks … I have 2 pots with germinated seeds . . .. WHAT TO DO ???!!!!!

OK .. I am THINKING … OK ..

1. Those who start germinate:
I will take it off the Plastic Bags and keep eye on it with some drop watering twice a week.
2. Other pots: I will put them in refrigerator for 4-6 weeks.

… Anyone has a better idea ??

The Bonsai experiment -2

January 7, 2018 3 comments

Back to my “Bonsai experiment” this part was on 27/12/2017 but I am posting it now..

Phase 2:
So, after 24h of putting the seeds in water, I drop the compost discs in water for some time it absorbs some water and get swell. Then I prepare the Plastic Bags label them with date and seeds name, then I squeeze each compost to get rid of the extra water and open the thin surround tissue and put it in the pots. Add the seeds to each pots (don’t miss the labels) and put it in the Plastic Bags.

Now, Move them to cool area for 2-3 weeks and lets see what will happen..

Here are some photos:

Seeds are in water for (24 hours)

Compost discs are in water and they get swell

Posts are in the Plastic Bags after adding the seed to the Compost

Now… we will come back after 2-3 weeks to see what may happen..

The Bonsai experiment

December 27, 2017 3 comments

Two weeks ago I was jumping through some web pages and i come over the Bonsai trees, I like the idea and the over-all tree looks and shapes, later I fond the Bonsai kit in amazon, so i add it to my cart and 10days later I got it (International Shipping).

Now, I will start this experiment of growing a Bonsai 🙂 I will do some other posts about this project to follow up.

The Bonsai kit:


  • Plastic Bags
  • Peat plugs
  • labeling sticks
  • 6 pots
  • 3 packets of seed: (Seeds are)
    • Silver Birch (Betchula Pendula)
    • Red Maple (Acer Rubrum)
    • Mountain Pine (Pinus Mugo Pumilio)
  • instruction book

The instruction:
Ok, it was not easy to understand the instruction, I tried to simplify it into some point and I hope I am right.
1. To put the seeds in water for (24 hours)
2. Then put the compost discs in water for some time it will absorbs water it will swell.
3. Open it and put it in the pots.
4. Add the seeds to each pots. (label each pots with the date and seeds name)
5. Put the pots in the Plastic Bags for 2-3 week in cool place.
6. Then move the Plastic Bags into refrigerator for 4-6 weeks. (not sure about the points 5 and 6)
7. Now, after that the seeds should be start germinate!! so we then remove it from the bags.

This process should take 1 year before the Bonsai Tree takes it shape. I will do other post with more photos of this experiment.
