The Spring 2012 issue of Scroll Saw magazine has a pattern titled Fretwork Wheelbarrow.
I decided to use red oak and to make two of these wheelbarrows.
The first job was to make the relatively 1/8" thick stock required for this project.
I resawed 3/4"thick red oak on the table saw and finished the resawing on the band saw. I then used the rotary planer on the drill press to take the stock down to 1/8" thickness. My old Sears 12" planer will only plane down to 3/16" thickness.
I used the blue painter's masking tape to contain 4 pieces for the sides in one bundle.
I used rubber bands to apply pressure while gluing up the wheelbarrows:
And here are the completed fretwork wheelbarrows:
The most difficult part of this project was preparing the 1/8" thick red oak wood. If you scroll the tab holes to 1/8" thickness, then the pieces with tabs just be the same 1/8" thickness.
