Norm travels to the Eric Sloane Museum in Kent, Connecticut, to examine the 2.69 list price Montgomery-Ward wheelbarrow that was the subject of one of Sloane’s most famous drawings. This, along with other historic examples, provides Norm with design clues as to what makes a good old-fashioned wheelbarrow. Bowing to modernity in its use of a pneumatic tire, Norm’s oak wheelbarrow features removable sides for greater versatility and medium-density overlay plywood for a smooth and durable bed.
