Use Hose to Prevent Splinters from Wheelbarrow Handles

Wheelbarrows with wooden handles often have splinters on the handles. To stop the splinters, measure the length and the thickness of the handles. Go to you auto parts store and request a water hose that has a diameter smaller than the wheel barrow handle and a length just an inch longer than the combined length of both handles. The inside diameter of the hose can be as much as a quarter inch smaller than the handle. Cut the hose in half; put soapy water inside the hose(s). Use the side of a hammer head to tap each hose on.
