The wheel puts most people off. So, a method where a circle is cut out of a section of pallet.

if you get keen, great to give away. In this picture, more time was spent on the wheels.

cutting and bracing.

when doing the opposite side, have to reverse things around, otherwise will get two for the same side

if no tri square, use paper as a right angle.

cut the curves at one end.

after cutting one sided curves, make a stencil for matching the end

Match the height of the panel to the sides, use something to work out the separation, then brace per the procedure for the sides

check the spacing, and then brace

Use paint cans

Check alignment of the sections with another pallet underneath. Add screws, to secure the panels at the top edges in the pic. These go onto be the bottom of the barrow

Now for what I’d the top of the barrow

With screws holding the lower panels in place, check diagonals to see they match

The handles

Out of a section, cut a circle. Use part of the pallet to form an axial.
