All done.  Even nicer outside in the yard.
Heres what I had to work with.  Dont  all of us JMS junkers have pallets, rocker parts, and scrap wood lying around?
The wheel was fun to make: I attached a frame and cosmetic cross braces to both sides of a large square of scrap wood, and then cut the circle.
On the stage.

I was asked to build a medieval wheelbarrow for a stage prop.  When asked to create something, people like "us" (heehee) use what we already have whenever possible, and fortunately the components were lying around here in abundance :)

Did some research and this was what came of it.  It was a big hit on the stage, but looks nicer and happier in my funny yard.

Pattern or design used: My own design
