How big is this going to be?

The last wishing wells I made had a dia. of about 5"

I was thinking about the way to attack it... Several polygons stacked, rotated to show the nice wall of a wishing well... glued together, etc. Then adding the roof supports and the roof (more polygons stacked the same direction sliding upward to a peak... glued on the way)...

etc. etc.

I'm getting closer to getting the shop cleaned up... BUT, it has been so HORRIBLY HOT HOT... at 1pm it was 107 in the shade today... That is TOO HOT to be out in the HOT air!

Thanks for the update.

@Joe Lyddon Just up the pass from you and it surely has been hot. Sky is clouded over with spotty rain, all from the storms in the Gulf. A lot of moisture heads across Mexico into Arizona and out through canyons into the Desert. Monsoons. But the heat has kept me out of the shop too. Even with AC, it's hard to get out there.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I'm sorry but I'm going to add some negativity to this thread. I have both mitersets and I've found them inconsistent with their setups and sometimes inaccurate. I use an Incra 1000SE miter guage and a tablesaw that is set correctly and the first time I used it I set the gauge to 90 deg after having it set by the dial indicator. method. The dial indicator method delivered perfect 90s every time but the miterset delivered inconsistent results. Sometimes 90.1 and 89.9, measured with accurate equipment. Every time I move the fence towards the pins I kept getting different readings. The same would happen regardless of which miterset I used. I've heard that the Incras have sometimes had strange readings with the miterset. Anyway I'm not a fan.
