I saw this flash by on CBS Sunday Morning, in a segment about American artists. Lovely google helped me find an image of it.
The artist is Randy Regier.
In Your Dreams: Kansas artist's mysterious 'toy store' pops up in downtown Riverside.
Here's his own website: randyregier.com. He's creating fake old toys, and they're very interesting. But the important part for me is that he made a wheelbarrow.
The Sunday Morning article is summarized here (this is page 2 of it): A treasure hunt for undiscovered American artists.
The video is on the first page, but might only be viewable in the U.S.:
