Pretty cool TikiFreak. If that first picture had the smoke coming out of the volcano, you'd actually look like you're taking a bong hit rather than drinking a beer. HA!

This project is what got me into tiki. The volcano had outdoor speakers embedded(sp?) in the base with a looping recording of an erruption(on cd), a smoke machine, lighting, and an automated blast of atomized water blow through the cone. This thing used to scare the $hit out of people as they were shopping the nursery. If you had a sense of humor you would just laugh it off, if not then .... we had a blast with this thing.

i did a volcanic rock project recently and used hypertufa, which is portland cement, sand, and peat moss mixed together about the consistency of a mud pie; form it into the shape that you want, let it set up, then brush it with a wire brush. you can theme the surface with flow lines, and the peat moss brushes out and/or weathers out to leave the pock marks. pretty cool effect, but i really like the rock salt idea as well.
