  • Country Wheelbarrow Stand Up Puzzle

    Just can't resist designing a new puzzle when I see something that looks like it needs to come out of the wood. Here's a nice little country wheelbarrow with "flowers" being carried to their planting spot. I cut it from 3/4" pine as usual and was going to leave it unfinished, but flowers need some color, so I mixed washes of acrylic paint and dabbed the flower parts of the puzzle. The rest I simply shellacked. I wonder how the wheelbarrow would be in red? Maybe I'll give it a try or perhaps one of you might like to test this out. In any event I hope you enjoy the project.

          You've got some great puzzles Al...!!!!
          I did the watering can for my landlord recently. She's an avid gardener and it was well received.
          I guess I'm gonna have to make this one for her or her husband. He's an even more gifted gardener. He can take a dead stick and bring to life.

          Thanks're a very generous designer....

                    Very clever! I don't know why I don't ever think about things like that.

                      Jo, when I got my hegner long ago it had a light with it. In the back of the light was an outlet for the footpedal. I put in a 3 prong plug and plugged in my footpedal and vacuum. Ran great for 15 years. A few years ago the outlet on the lamp died and my footpedal at the same time. I had to replace...

                      Conversation with Bruce. I need some beads for the dream catchers. Bruce - let me go look through my stash. I have what you need. Me - of course you do. When I first started doing shows, Bruce would go and make dreamcatcher earrings and other jewelry. He was quite good at it. Of course he was. He kept...

                      The saw was plugged into a Festool Midi vac, which was plugged directly into a wall outlet.

                      Rolf, could you explain your setup again? It appears your saw is plugged into foot switch which is plugged into outlet strip. Where does the Festool fit? Does it turn on when saw starts if it is...

                      I seriously doubt it was operator error. Machines like these are designed to be run straight out of the box with no user activity other then plug and go. It was likely a bad component, or internal connection that failed due to vibration. Yes they do happen even in top quality machines. Even if Pegas...
