A wishing well 2010-05-04
From Cassie:
I'm trying to construct a Wishing Well made of treated 2x4 wood, so the actual measurement is 3 1/2 by 1 1/2. The well is going to be three feet in diameter. I'm trying to construct this as circular as possible, what angle should the wood panels be cut at?

From Don:

I am building a wishing-well out of pieces of 2-by-4. I have included a picture of a miniature version of what I want. There are to be ten 2-by-4 pieces around the well and I want the circle around the outside of the structure to have a diameter of approximately 3 feet. How long to I cut the 2-by-4's to build the wishing-well.
