Too many project's, too little time, I'm always doing 10 things at once, Why?, I don't know, I like to torture myself, at the beginning of the summer I was set on building a Waterfall Volcano in my back yard, something on the size of about 10-12 feet high, summers are so short here on Long Island and before I knew it it was June already so I decided to build a smaller version, this one is 5 feet tall. I made a wooden frame and topped it off with one of speaker covers I made, used cardboard and 2 inch tape to get my shape then covered this with fiberglass and spray foam, and painted it to look like stone,added a few pockets for plants, used a mister/fogger with lights to get the effect I wanted and a small water pump. Looks good ( espicailly at night)and works very well, also made a new Tiki Fire God for the deck and some Moai with lights in them to add to the mood, a little at a time I'm making my tropical paradise even if it lasts only a few months a year, well that's what I did this summer, check out some pics here and more if you like on my site www.Eyeballjohn.com, just click on Tiki Lounge, let me know what ya think, Later John

Hi, thanks. Glad you like my work, I know to the HardCore Tiki coniseur? my frown on any Tiki carving not done in wood but Hay, I've been working with Fiberglass since I was 17 and that's a long time ago, so I use what I know, I did make a mold of the Fire God Tiki, I should have them done and up on E-bay next week if anyone is interested? they are also used as speaker covers. It's in the 40's outside right now and I'm sittin by the fireplace with a Tiki drink in hand Dreamin bout when I can be outside again, Aloha to all and to all a Good Night, John
