this mill stands about 5 feet tall and the wheel must be balanced to make the water turn the wheel properly. looks nice in the yard. Made from plywood and cedar.

Great job, I love water wheels, I built a 5 foot wheel that is running 24-7 in a creek that flows through out property, hope to hook it up to a pump to pump water to our garden. Will post pictures later this summer.

Darn, now I want to make one. You did a beautiful job on this and looks great next to your lighthouse!
