This was my first wishing well. I didn’t really have anything in mind, just started cutting. It ended up 3 feet wide and 5 1/2 feet tall. I was really happy of the outcome. I didn’t put a rope or anything on it, because the customer wasn’t sure what they were going to put in it. The finish is a treated stain from the local lumber yard.

I’d say you did an outstanding job. I would never guess you used pallets for lumber. Way to go!

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

I don’t use the standard 4×3 pallets. Sheet metal pallets are made with all kinds of different pieces of wood. It gives you a huge selection. My uncle owns a pallet recycle company also, so I get some wood from him.
