Made-It-Myself Wheelbarrow
"I used a 20-lb. propane tank and a 55-gal. plastic drum to make a lightweight, stable wheelbarrow," says Richard Faber.
  The Tiffin, Ohio man cut the drum in half the long way and used one piece as the bucket for the wheelbarrow. He bolted pieces of conduit to brace the drum to the arms and bent two pieces to make a stand.
  A shaft through the center of the propane tank rides on bearings attached to wooden handles.
  He says he spent about $20 for it.
  "It makes a very good wheelbarrow," he says. "I've made a couple of them and I use them all the time."
