hope this gives some people ideas for a nice little project. it is 36in tall & 16in wide & functioning wheel. this is on a pond we have on the property but you can make this smaller & run it on a fountain pump as well..

Great idea and a great project.

Does it have a function or is it just decorative? It looks great either way.

it works but for now, its off & i’m building a gear box for it to act as a generator. during winter I turn it off so it doesn’t freeze & spit.

if we had water
I can tell ya that if that wheel was here right now it would be replaced quickly
no measure of roof ever outlasted rain or water but when wood hits the river of life and you can tap into it ?
why not : )

i love the idea of tapping into what the universe gave us
i really do and be it capturing a rain drop to anoint a child
all bullshit aside
if we plant a garden of water wheels
we win : )
