Hey folks!

I wanted to share with and get feedback from those who know on my new volcano prop for this year's iteration of my Tiki bar makeover.
I've never seen a large working volcano around (but I'm an ignoramus) and wanted to make one. My original inspiration was the lava wall at Columbus's Grass Skirt, but in working it out, I thought I'd try a whole volcano.
I'll link
my You Tube video of the installation here (because I can't figure how to embed it, sorry), and if you want to read more, you can read my laboriously exhaustive post with lost of construction pictures at my blog.

The nice thing about it is that I can store it for the months that I'm doing other kinds of drinks. But I am glad to be back in Tiki mode.

Thanks in advance for opinions!

Very well done. I like the lighted lava with fog.
