    This was one of those cheaply made little wheel barrows, one we inherited from my Mother-In-Law. It was rusted away & not of much use as a barrow, so I cut off the bits I wanted & turned them into a trekking Trolley.

    I cut a couple of regrowth saplings from our coppice, & inserted them into the part that holds the wheel. Drilled through the original holes & through the sapling handles then bolted on the wheel. The legs I turned upside down & used as a way of stopping any gear from rubbing on the wheel. Leg braces I used as a platform on which to tie down baggage.

    I have been holding on to an old rusty wheel barrow, and now I know why. Thanks for the idea and photos. I am going to make one for myself.

    Keith H., are you so very certain that you were not raised in Tennessee?! Any jerry-rigger is a man after my own heart.
