Water Well Carved by Dad

Oct 24, 2011

Dad is a woodcarver and has carved items for years from sea life, walking sticks, canes, boxes etc. but I think this water well he carved last week is just the cutest. He got the idea from a carving magazine and thought it would be fun to do. The well sits on top of a clear bottle so you can watch the bucket move up and down. This bottle is an old milk bottle from my grandparents. Mom told me grammy and grampa Childers used to sell whole milk to locals in the small town of Salem, WV,  from one of their jersey cows. I had no clue and was certainly happy to learn this tad bit of family history.

The tiny bucket dad carved is smaller than a thimble. You can see it near the bottom of the bottle. The bucket which is attached to an old chain type necklace my mom had and can be lowered down and brought back up by turning the handle. I’m sure my nieces Madelyn and Isabella will enjoy turning the handle to watch the bucket move up and down.
