"Super Stable" 2-Wheeled Wheelbarrow
"I wanted to use my wheelbarrow to move firewood into our house, but it was too unstable. So I replaced the single wheel on front with an axle and two 12-in. high wheels. Now the wheelbarrow is a lot more stable and also much easier to use," says Ken Voigt, Wausau, Wis.
  Voigt started with a single-wheeled wheelbarrow. He removed the single wheel from the frame and mounted the axle and wheels in its place. The axle is made from a 1-in. dia. stainless steel shaft and is secured to uprights on the frame by a pair of set screws.
  The back part of the frame supports a pair of handlebars that extend up and outward, which makes the wheelbarrow easy to pick up. Soft rubber covers make the handlebars easy on the hands.
  "I made sure I spaced the wheels 29 inches apart so they would fit through the doors on our house," says Voigt.
