    wishing well

    This is for one of my wifes friends.Aprox. 3'x51/2'. made of cedar i got out of the scrap pile at work. Not finished yet as i didn't have enough ply for the roof, but i'll dig some out tomorrow. have the shingles so woun't take long to finish. Did turn the pail, and the dowel for crank. Had to get some turning time in. thanks and all comments welcome.

    Very nice Stephen! I'm sure she will like it. Great use of "scrap" wood.

    Neet idea incorporating the bird houses in there. I really didn't want the octagon look, so i went with 11 1/4degree angles. corse then i lamanated some bords and using a home made circle jig, i just made the top which mades it look even more round.
