That is some very picturesque clutter there. I'm envious!

Very nice Erich! You guys are a little higher in elevation than I realized. Probably doesn't snow often but once in a while. I heard snow was supposed to get down to 2,000 feet this week

About a month or so ago, my buddy in New Jersey said he saw a tiki statue for sale and wanted to know if I wanted it. He had no idea the significance of it, but was excited I was happy about it. So he bought him, and we shipped him across the country to the hut.






He was missing the stand and bowl. I my mind the only person right for the job was Ken Pleasant. So I contacted him and he carved it up for me...





I spent about a week soaking the statue to kill termites (and one new jersey carpenter bee that escaped and is probably confused now where he is), brushing and staining. Its a little darker than it should be, but its close.





Yesterday I put him in his final spot and reworked a blue moving light to simulate water in the bowl.





All in all I'm a happy kid, and this witco fountain will now get a much better life.

ARGH! I saw your light post on FB but hadn't realized the backstory! That is a super find (wish I had friends like that!) and a great restoration job. Glad to see the ol' Drooling Bastard getting a new lease on life.

I'd also be interested in hearing what you used. Did you actually find termites in it, or was it a precaution?

You've got some great friends!
