  1. Wishing Well / Card box

    I'm getting married this year so I thought it would be fun to make a wishing well for the reception to serve a couple purposes. 1) To be used to put cards in and 2) Instead of having a guest book all of our friends and family will sign the well, and tell a small story if they would like. :)...
  2. Wishing Well

    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.

    My sister has a huge flower garden with many yard ornaments I have made for her. Her K-Mart wishing well had finally worn out after more than 20 years of service….......so she asked me to make another one. My wood choices were either cedar or pressure-treated wood. I chose to go with cedar...

    I had an old Italian neighbor that used to make Wine. At about the age of 90, he quit making wine. He gave me his wine press, & not being a winemaker I made a wishing well out of the oak cage. I used some aged Cypress barn boards for the roof. Instead of a bucket winch I put a carved sign in...

    In eating lunch so I thought i would ask this. My wife just came out and commented "How can you write all over your prized saw" "You don't let anyone even get near it, etc, etc, etc." Why don't you use that pad of notepaper that is laying right there? Now, she said this all very nicely, just...
