FINALLY! The one and only 1970 Wishing Well salvaged from Villa Park, Chicago IL is finished. Such a crazy concept from Weber. An awesome buddy Joseph Radings custom fabricated the crank handle for me which was the final piece to this Beauty that made it functional. By functional I mean working, Iím not so sure that itís practically functional though 🤣

An awesome piece that Iím grateful to have found and I canít wait to cook on this when I find some time to move it to the deck one weekend 🤣 for now I will enjoy it in the living room. The chain chews through the rattle can paint on the winding rod so I will get that powdercoated black soon for more durability. Hope you guys enjoy seeing how it works.

Iím so nervous about the 55 year of old timber handle holding the weight of the lid [emoji28]
I will try and work out how to post a video of it in action
