Painting this Wishing Well Planter white and getting nice photos during the day was difficult. Guess I need to brush up on how to take pictures during bright sunny days. I was looking to make something a little different from the last one. Please Lumberjocks, jump in and comment. Any ideas or suggestions to make it better. I would like to start a third one but actually I am out of fresh Ideas and could use your help.

Pressure treated Bottom, Yellow Pine, Cedar Cupola, Benjamin Moore Exterior While Paint (Low Luster)
Bucket: Ipe (South American Wood) Ipe is among the most durable lumbers on earth, with exceptional resistance to decay, rot, and insect attack. (as per The Wood DataBase)

Height 7 Ft
Width 43 inches
Wt. Approx 245 lbs

Wow. Now that is a wishing well and a beautiful work of art at the same time. Seems you have thought of everything from wood type to lay out. Just beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

That is the nicest looking WW I’ve ever seen. Great design with excellent features. Looks too nice to sit outside.
