That is the nicest wishing well I’ve seen. The stave bucket is a nice enhancement. Do you turn the logs for the lower part yourself?

Thank you all for the warm welcome. I have sold a few but made more for gifts than anything else. The buckets were the hardest to figure out but I made a jig so making the staves is never a problem now. The logs on the bottom are treated timbers that you buy at lowes or other big name garden stores. I buy the cedar shakes for the shingles at lowes also, then trim them all down to one width then dog ear them to make them look a little better. I sell these for $250.00 and Ive advertised them on craigslist but really havent had much interest. Maybe my price is too high! Thanks again, makes me feel good that you guys and gals like them. Happy woodworking!

That is a really nice product and I’m sure that you make income off of those. They are also very attractive. Nice work.
