Re Medium Size Wishing Well
Thank you for your wishing well plan.
I proposed to my wife at a wishing well and since then she's always
wanted one for the garden. Well I didn't know that but on our 12th
anniversary I got the idea to make one, found your site and made it.
I live in Papua New Guinea, and pine is not widely available here.
Neither is the galvanized metal strap.
But, Kwila (a very hard wood) is, as is hooping iron. The hooping iron
is used in the construction of roofs here. It's about 1/16 inches
thick, and it's about 1 inch wide. Needless to say, it was stronger
metal, galvanized, and harder wood.
I had to pre-drill a lot.
ALSO the wood here is not measured in inches and feet, it's all in
millimeters and cut thus. So I had to make a few changes to your plan
to get the right amount of wood, but, because you included the math on
the "barrel" portion, I was able to figure it out very easily.
Here is the final results,
this picture is taken in my back yard in Papua New Guinea.
