Fun to build!
This medium-size wishing well stands approximately 1400mm (4'-8") high and 600mm (2ft) wide. It is a cross between a small planter and a full-size wishing well, and can be used either as a planter box or a garden ornament. This wishing well is a lot of fun to build.
About the lumber
The lumber used in this project is pressure-treated board. You can use a different type of wood as long as it is suitable for exterior use. For the most part, 100mm x 25mm (1x4) stock is used, the exception being the roof boards which are 150mm x 25mm (1x6), and the spindle and spindle handle which are 25mm x 25mm (1x1).
About the measurements
The measurements are given in both millimetres and inches. The millimetres are given first followed by inches in brackets. For example: 100mm x 25mm (1x4).
The metric measurements are not an exact match to their imperial equivalents for rounding off purposes, so use one or the other.
