We made this wishing well from framire wood(African origin) and mahogany. i got the idea from Steve Ramsey’s plant pots from the past week, originally i wanted to make a vase, but i mess up the measurements for the thickens of the base and it came too big, so i tought that a wishing well may be the right project for that base.

the axle, the bucket and the pin that turns the wheel were done in the lathe, that wheel was a surplus toy wheel for a truck that we did sometime ago. and the paint job was done by my lovely wife.
