In year 2010 my mom wanted wood well. I told her OK, please buy me miter saw and I will do it for you. (In 2010 i was pooe student with no money :)) It is made from spruce prisms 10×10 cm (approx 4” x 4”). I bought it in our local lumber store. Construction is very simply, joined by screws 0,6×16 cm (approx 1/4” x 6”). Finish is Teak stain.
Sorry for my english :l

Looks good. Now all you need is a wooden bucket, rope and and water.

Great looking well. I bet your mom thinks buying the miter saw for you was a good investment :)

Yes, because saw + wood prisms + paint cost less money than well in shop :) And these are made from wooden boards, not from prisms. And of course, both of us are satisfied. She has well and i have saw :)

Q: Mitre or Miter saw? :)

Great job! There aren’t a lot of these that actually work around here, most are just for decoration. Did you make the wheel also? You don’t need to speak good English to show off your projects, they speak for themselves.:)
Mitre or miter both mean the same thing it just depends on where in the world you are as to which way you use it.

Dlow, no, wheel is from shop with garden accessories. I donĀ“t have lathe to doing center of wheel and spikes (But if I really wanted to made it, I would do it). Wheel is something like that and it cost about 15USD –

Last autumn at the cottage with my brother we did the second well –
He made the bottom and i made top, but in this time well is not finished, it is waiting for the spring time…

And this is at the same cottage –
Repaired last summer :)
Year of construction is 1948 -
