My family has had this old wheelbarrow now for over 15 years and we have enjoyed it very much. We did not treat the tool with much respect and I mean we left it out in the elements all this time. There is a good bit of rust and the wood handles are starting to fall apart. Now a new wheelbarrow is going to be no less than $40 so I figured that I would take the time to cut some new wood and make handles for this old tool. After some time I get them finished and I have to say that I think the tool looks awesome! What a rewarding feeling to have an old tool restored and usable again.
