Damn, that's one fine fountain, Ken! I'd be all over it if it weren't for vacations, marriages, house-buying,...aw, I give up!

Love your work, though, and the tiki I got from you a few months ago is still one of my most prized posessions. Keep up the great work and I'm sure we'll do business again soon.

That is just beeyootiful! If I had $700 to spend right now I'd be all over it.

One day... one day.

Hmmmm....thinking....thinking...

Keigs~
Is that for everything in the picture? (except for water and the plants, of course).

I looked for dimensions on the other posts but did not find them. Can you give some more detail on size?

Yes sorry, For everything except plants, water and rocks. It comes with a pump bottom base and every thing. all you would need is a piece of 1/4 inch or 1/2 plywood for the bottom to set it all on. The measurements are 4ft tall the totem is 13- 14 inches indiameter the base is 40 long inches by 29 inches wide and 4 inches tall.
Thanks again everyone for the compliments.

Stellar, your best effort that I have seen.

I do hope someone here picks it up, at $700, a deal IMO. Could easily see it going for more on Ebay.

Kudos,
midnite

Absolutely beautiful. Keep making them and maybe, just maybe my budget can handle it one day.

Have you had some inquiries?

It's fabulous, what a great design! Darn it, I don't have the money now but if I did I'd be afraid of what my rotating mutt collection would do to it. Just can't expect any self-respecting dog not to wizz on one side and chew the other.

Same problem here...and we don't have a dog.

Wow, what a great audience.

I think it would have a better chance with dogs than my neighbors, I yelled at them and ran them out of my yard for screwing with it a few minutes ago. Took me a week to build and would probably take them 10 minutes to take apart and throw it around my yard. tiki_kiliki- no inquiries yet. Except for future ones when people have more cash.
puamana- hows the hut coming
thanks again everyone for your compliments and instead of buying that next shag print buy a fountain (just kidding buy what you like)

Wow, keigs....I just saw this...I've been distracted lately...That's a fine fountain. I've been surrepticiously plotting one for close to a year now for my own use..but I'm sure it will be nowhere close. Great work!

I sealed the whole thing with with a exterior minwax sealer for sun and water. I coated the bowls 3 times to make a thick coating. They seem to be ok so far. Plus it it cedar so they should last a long time. Thanks Bk Im sure whatever you make will be great I have seen your work.

I havent got any replys so I will be putting it on ebay tonight with a $500.00 reserve. I realize $700.00 is a lot of money. But I do have a nice little chunk of $ into building it and a lot of time. I hope it goes for more than $500.00 to be worth while. If not I hope it goes to a good TC members home. Thanks for all the great comments. I will post a link tonight.

That is one awesome fountain. Kudos to you. can I ask what method you use for shipping? I make concrete Tikis and shipping is always an issue. I'm sure your fountain weighs alot more than my 19" hollow Moai heads, and I sometimes have shipping charges to the east coast upwards of $40. What's your secret??
