Wooden wheelbarrow for pot plants

PXL_20201010_010400459.jpg

 

A small decorative wooden wheelbarrow for the garden.

Simple design and easily made out of 8 fence palings. (100x1800mm treated pine).

 

Not sure if it should be painted, stained or coated with clear. 

 

Handles are 1200mm long, and the barrow is 300x600mm to give you an idea of size. The wheel is 6x 100x300 pieces glued and cut to suit. 

 

Thanks for looking.

Re: Wooden Wheelbarrow for Pot Plants

Hi @fhk56,

 

Another fantastic project!

 

It's amazing the projects we are seeing from the community utilising fence pailings. How much work did it take to get them to that kind of finish? Did you need to pick through the batch to find pieces straight enough to work with? Are you planning on growing plants in it or is it purely an aesthetical piece? I think it would look fabulous planted out with Petunias.

 

Personally, I'd like to see it with a slight stain and a clear coat over the top.

 

Many thanks for sharing. We look forward to seeing your next project.

 

Well done.

 

Mitchell

Re: Wooden Wheelbarrow for Pot Plants

Just a quick update.

Photo shows the wheelbarrow setup. Potted plants can be changed with seasons.

 

Also - in regards to the finish. It is natural, I just picked palings that were straight and in good condition.

Cheers and thanks for the positive comments.
