Hello Craftsters,

Spring's here, time to show all the stuff we've been doing during the chill. Been working on something cool. It's a replacement for my previous standing fountain which wasnt quite kosher. It had a few flaws that I wanted to fix right away while they were still fresh in my head. So voil, 3 1/2 months later we have the That 70s retro tiki fountain. Its ~33 tall, holds 5 gallons of water, has a built in filter, comes with 3 high power submersible LED lights, and detaches in two pieces for easy shipping! It really looks neat at night & Im really happy with it. Heres a little picture from start to finish.

THanks for looking!

Great job!  What a fun fountain, and I love the different way it looks with varying lighting conditions.

I love it!  Though for some reason I had the Scooby Doo theme song going through my head when I saw the finished product.
