Hello everyone,

Been working on something cool the last few months. It's a replacement for the previous standing fountain which had a few flaws that I wanted to fix right away while they were still fresh in my head. So voilà, 3 1/2 months later we have the 70’s retro moai tiki fountain. The 33" stone fountain holds ~5 gallons of water, has a built in filter, and includes three high power submersible LED lights. It also detaches in two pieces for easy shipping! I’m very happy with the way it turned out. I hope you enjoy the pictures. Oh, and a youetube video courtesy of my friend Eric Sandford.

The video shows it better than the pictures. (Just a matter of lighting.) Definitely looks like something that might've graced a hotel bar or lobby circa 1971, particularly one in Europe.

It's a good design, a piece which could really make a small Tiki space, especially one skewing towards a more modern, less cluttered take on Tiki.
