Wheel Burrow

Thanks for all the Iron advice.
I meant to post this a while ago, but I've been busy.
(I'm guessing it's mid to late 1800's). The wood was nearly gone, but I was able to copy the dimensions before it fell apart. I just recreated it with regular old pressure treated lumber, and cleaned up the hardware.

My digital camera is acting up again, hope this comes through.

Looks great. Will you be using it for a planter or something else? None the less, great job on reconstructing it.

That does look very good. Nice work!

Do you happen to have a pic of what it looked like before the restoration? Just curious, Thanks!

Woops. Sorry about the small picture. I guess I formatted it wrong. I'll send a new one when I get home, and I'll throw in a pic of the original.

I did use pressure treat, because the lady I rebuilt it for will be using it for an outdoor planter. It was interesting... I rebuilt each piece exactly like the original, then put it together (not knowing how it went together). The original builders were ingenious. The pieces went together like a well built puzzle.
