Nice looking set. What do you plan to do with that pile of walrus tusks in the lower right corner?

Nice looking benches ATP. Your outdoor space looks great and very inviting.

O.K. you guys have to let me know if this is too cheesy,be honest now.

I have been looking for an indoor mini fountain for the Atomic Tiki Lounge,I have not been able to find
anything that would look good with Tiki Decor?

So I put this together, I started with an Asian waterfall Fountain I found at the Orange County fair
took off all the Asian decor and with hot glue gun in hand glued Moai & a plastic palm tree I had.
Got a cheap waterproof color shifting LED from the web (I did try a water mist maker, but it made to much of a mess)

Set it on a plate with lava rock and a little cement Ku
Mrs. ATP loves it, but I am still on the fence with this one?

I think it's pretty cool. I think maybe it might benefit from some "greenery" just behind.

Looks great! The plastic palm trees look a little "plastic" Any way to replace them with the lottle live ones Walmart and Lowes sell in the little pots?

Thanks for the input! the fountain is only a little over a foot high,so it's not very big
I will see if I can find better looking miniature plants, maybe a trip to Michael's (Mrs.ATP loves that store)
will be in order, the palm I used does look very plastic.

In daylight it looks cheesy...But so do a lot of cool bar interiors when the lights come up.

With the colored lights on in the low light it looks really swell, even sort of epic.

Cheesy Goodness! I agree with Mike- some fresh plants would take it over the top.
I've never seen a fountain of that nature before! Score 1 for you.

It looks fine just the way it is, it has a vintage look to it.

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.
