I think the fountain is a blast, especially the lighting.

This makes me wonder what you could do with a nice geode as a starter...

Thanks Robb, I sure would like to see one of our ultra craftsmen make a really cool Tiki fountain?

Being a newcomer (well lurker for a few weeks) I actually just read through the whole thread, and I have to say top notch work. I'm rather fond of the fountain, especially your use of lighting. One small addition might be to replace the fake palms with an Anthurium or some other rock-attaching plant that has reasonable care requirements. Just a though.

I concur, it is a fine fountain sir! Do you have any particular method for "toasting" the wood for your projects and what grit sandpaper do you use? I'm working on a shelf and am curios about your technique.

Hi ErkNoLikeFire, well I just go from a large grit sandpaper, then Medium, and last a fine grit, all depends on the wood you are using, I mostly work in pine.

I use a hand propane torch to burn the wood, get some scraps of wood and just burn along the grain
you will start to get the hang of it & start seeing patterns in each piece of wood you burn.
go easy at first as you can over burn the wood.

Be very careful with the torch and work outside away from combustible materials!

Thanks! I will most definitely practice before I start my next project. I rent so shelves and art will go a long way to getting my house the way I want without scaring the landlord.

I know this is digging way into the thread, but where did the Digga Digga Doo painting come from? The only mug my wife wants is that one, and I would love to find that painting too.

Something new!

How to make a "Bamboo Partition"

I started with a section of 4' X 6' Bamboo fencing



Then using 1" X 2" pine strips, built a basic frame to fit the Bamboo





Then I use the 1" X 2" Pine strips to frame the sides of the frame



One side done, now flip it over...




Drop the Bamboo into the frame & drill holes on the top & bottom of the Bamboo about every foot, Fasten with screws & nail strips onto the frame to enclose it.



Cut 2, 2' sections of 2" X 4" for the legs & set screws to hold them firmly in place.



That's the basic partition, now lets finish it.



Used a hand torch to burn highlights & bring out the grain of the pine.



Give the frame a nice sanding, apply a wood stain of your choice
and seal with a good wood sealant.



Now for that extra touch, you can mount a Tiki mask or whatever floats your boat
on the partition for that little extra touch, here is what I used.



And what it looks like in place.



Cocktail time!

P.S. Sand the wood before you burn the grain, got a little ahead of the steps.
