Tip from a pro

The slanted shape of a wheelbarrow makes it perfect for moving dirt and concrete, but square items like toolboxesnot so much. As a lead carpenter for a remodeling firm, I was constantly hauling tools back and forth from my truck to the job site, twice a day, every day. On a whim, I built a box to sit on top of my wheelbarrow so I could haul more tools at once. I liked it so much that I took it to the next job, and the one after that, and the one after that. Its just a simple plywood box with cleats fastened to the bottom to keep it from slipping off the wheelbarrow. Ive hauled mountains of stuff with it over the years.
