He Gave New Life To Old Wheelbarrow
Jack McGee makes a special connection with his deceased father every time he hauls a load of firewood. McGee uses the same wheelbarrow frame his dad used for 50 years.
  “We’re going to get another 50 years of use out of it,” McGee says.
  The Lake City, Mich., building contractor sanded and repainted the legs and hardware that held the wheelbarrow’s original tub and steel wheel, and he purchased a new wheel and tire.
  He carved handles out of 2 by 2 ash and used ash boards to build a slatted bed. He left the sides open to haul long lengths of firewood for his outdoor stove, but he uses it to haul other stuff, too.
  “Ash works well because it’s strong but lightweight,” he says.
