In response to a customer's request, I went looking for a reliable source of waterwheels to be used in ornamental ponds, streams and other decorative uses.  If you are looking for a waterwheel, you will be very happy with what I have found!  An Amish carpenter stocks beautifully handcrafted waterwheels in four sizes.  These wooden waterwheels are made with naturally treated Yellow Pine.  We have them readily available for fast shipping in four sizes: 15", 30", 36" and 48" diameter.

Hand-crafted in Pennsylvania by our Amish friends, these authentic wooden waterwheels come complete with wooden wheel, sealed wheel bearings and a cold-rolled steel axle.  The screws and fasteners are yellow zinc coated.  Details listed by size below.  Yesteryear will come alive in your pond, stream, canal, or decorative fountain when you find a creative way to include one of these beautiful turning waterwheels. These waterwheels are pieces of quality craftsmanship and you will be pleased with this product. 

Because of the inherent characteristics of wood as a material, these waterwheels may include knots and other natural blemishes.
While these products are skillfully crafted, all wood products will include natural variations such that no two waterwheels will be identical.

The waterwheels rotate freely around the stationary axle, and as such are configured for decoration only, not for driving equipment.
Wheel bearings are sealed and we do not recommend greasing, especially in applications where wheels will be in contact with fish or other wildlife.

Important: All wooden products sold unfinished should be finished immediately with a paint or stain by the customer. No wood products should be left unfinished, as they are extremely susceptible, especially to humidity or water damage, in this state. Unfinished products should not be purchased unless adequate weather-safe storage is available while the product awaits treatment.

Prop 65 Warning: This product can expose you to chemicals including wood dust, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer.
