This wishing well is made from treated pine and cedar. I like the two tone color as I think it gives it a liitle different look. It has a hollow bottom so that it easily fits over a well casing. The well stands about 5’ 6” with the inside diameter being 20 1/2”. I have made smaller versions and larger versions of this well with the largest being 37” inside diameter and 7’ tall.

That’s really cool! The perfect way to camouflage the “real” well plumbing.

Great job, I made one for my brothers place up north, but his pump sat above ground.

I’ve probably sold 20 – 25 of them. So yeah, I’ve made enough for another tool. : )
