DIY Project – Make a Wooden Wishing Well
From Keith Fritze,
Made this wishing well entirely of 1×4 pressure treated lumber. Roof is cedar shingles which will naturally weather. It took 72 shingles to cover the roof. I increased the dowel size to 1.25″ and bored it for 7/16″ dowel pegs. Stained with Minwax walnut stain and sealed with Spar Urethane.
Approx Material Cost:
- $100 for the 1×4.
- $8 for Dowels $5 Roof Peak Trim
- $25 for Walnut stain and spar urethane
- $25 for cedar shingles off FB Marketplace (Would have been about $80 retail)
- $15 screws and nails
