End Date: 24/1/2018
Working hours: 1 hours daily (not working in weekends)


Tools:
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.

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.



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

Sample




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.



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