  • No crit. But I enjoy simply seated with two coshions in a wheelbarrow. I like 2. So far. Great Wark, inspirational vids. I want to take an angle grinder to a neglected barrow. Much love and keep her lit

  • # 2 I like the look of the remains of the wheelbarrow plus with the pumped up, the portability factor is attractive.

  • A bit late but I like proto 1 better. There is room for something amazing there.

  • Wow Laura now I'm embarrassed, your old and broken wheelbarrow is in way better condition than mine and I'm still using it!!!

  • 3 looks actually comfortable. I think you could save some steel tubing and tire for the back floor rest.

    Alan MilanAlan Milan16 dagen geleden
  • Number 2. Its simple and makes a statement.

    Harry MillerHarry Miller17 dagen geleden
  • I like #3 the best, but I think the edges need a roll to avoid slicing something. All three are quite playful though.

    Gary OshustGary Oshust17 dagen geleden
  • I like Prototype 2, but I think it could look really nice if you lined the seat with the metal like you did in Prototype 3.

    Stephen TimperleyStephen Timperley17 dagen geleden
  • Number 1 for sure. I could see you trimming those curved bits you cut out on the sides with maybe bent wood! Make it a mix of organic curves with metal.

  • I actually like # 2. It’s definitely a conversation piece but I also like #3. What I see in my mind is that they can all be painted or stained as well. By the way Laura I’m glad you didn’t get hurt.

    Nathan ArthurNathan Arthur19 dagen geleden
  • 1. All day long. The ‘wings’ give it such a classic chair vibe while still keeping a touch of wheel barrow.

    Oliver BruntOliver Brunt19 dagen geleden
  • Difficulte to chose but i prefert the number 2. Good work !

    Adélaïde CharletAdélaïde Charlet19 dagen geleden

  • Number two the second one is way cooler with the wheel still attached.

    Lee BakerLee Baker19 dagen geleden
  • I like number 1 AND 2 because the wheelbarrow is completely reused. I would make a rocking chair out of the number 1. Greetings from the Sauerland.

  • 2! Most uniquely an old wheelbarrow

  • I like the reclining feature of 1 best - but I also like 2 a lot! 3 is a bit too normal, maybe.

    Stuart CuthbertsonStuart Cuthbertson20 dagen geleden
  • Number 3 looks like a chair, one you’d buy at a regular store. Number 2 looks uncomfortable because of the wheel in the way of your feet. Number three looks like a bucket seat made for my bucket, as well as initially acting like a mechanical bull. That said, number one seems unique and ultimately more comfortable. The winner, number 1!

    Liam SheridanLiam Sheridan20 dagen geleden
  • I like them all, but I'm going with #3

    Kerry StevensonKerry Stevenson20 dagen geleden
  • I go with number 2. It just looks cool and reads as a wheelbarrow the most. They look easy to move around too. My advice though is the base of 2 with the seat part of 3. That said 3 also is really cool.

    Jason GJason G20 dagen geleden
  • Number 2 feels like the right balance of comfort and wheelbarrow!

    Louis LeblancLouis Leblanc20 dagen geleden
  • Hey Laura tough call, like mobility of number 2 but ultimately gut feeling, it’s number 3. Just right balance of function & look, in the Renaissance William Morris stylee. Well done. Keep doing it!

  • The first chair is my favorite. reminds me of a rocking chair/recliner. with that said, all three chairs are great ideas.

    Anthony GandaraAnthony Gandara20 dagen geleden

    Roger WalkerRoger Walker20 dagen geleden

  • I love Prototype #2. I think some adding pegs on the side of the wheel would be a good spot to rest your feet, kinda like the foot rests on a motorcycle.
