  • 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.

                      Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

                      Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

                      Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

                      Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                      I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

                      Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
