Home Made Wheelbarrow for Firewood

Robbie Newton lives on an island in British Columbia. His house, “Mossy Hollow,” was shown in Builders of the Pacific Coast. Robbie just sent me this photo, which he describes as a “… 40 year old wheelbarrow which had served me and three others well, rebuilt to carry firewood logs. It’s another glued up construction, this time with enough heavy duty buried screws to make sure that it stays rigid. It carries remarkable loads with ease and if I have a round which is way beyond lifting, I just tip it on end and tip the wheelbarrow on its side next to it and it’s just as easy to lever them both upright.”
