Miniature Wood Craft Wishing Well - Making The Base
Starting Construction of the Craft Well Base
The image above shows how to begin construction of the main part
of the miniature wishing well, the base.
One of the 1/4" thick balsa wood squares is used for the bottom, and
the other four squares are glued around the bottom. Since all squares are the
same size, this will result in the corners of the side pieces leaving exposed
The four short 1/4" square posts are used to perfectly fill in the
corners as shown in the illustration. Notice the post at the left of the
Completing the Well Base
The figure above shows how the completed craft wishing well base appears when
You can just see the square panel that makes the bottom.
You can see how the other 4 square panels make up the sides, and how
the 1/4" posts finish the corners.
