Project X is here
Project X is complete (well 99% complete as the water pump needs to be tweaked a bit) and I have stalled long enough so rather than make you read through a long and tedious message Â for the impatient followers of this thread -- Jump to the end for a video link.
For the rest and for those now returning from the video here is the long dreary story.
Project X is now in need of a name; some thing like A Celestial Temple of Reflection. Note the Chinese characters water and temple on the entry.
Okay the plastic water tub holds about 35 gallons and was purchased at a yard sale for $1.00, (Actually I purchased five of them). Above the tub are three shelves from a BakerÂs rack (thanks to all who noticed the previous spelling error and didnÂt mention it) covered with stones (cost about $0.50 each). The Foo Dog statues have been lurking around the house for a quarter of a century (neat huh, really makes them sound old) and were a gift from my brother-in-law. The entry section is from that notorious gumball machine I picked from the trash at a yard sale Â donÂt ask. The rest of the parts are similar to the pagodas I previously posted. An automotive vented brake disk, the base of a table lamp Â inverted - the glass from a table lamp, free weight plates separated by sections of chain-link fence pipe, and finally a statuary head purchase for me by my DW from Ross stores (just because she was shopping) for less than $5.00.
I have left out a lot of the construction details but please note there is a center section of 2" thick wall pipe that supports the weights they do not rest on the glass. There is no weight on the glass section at all. One additional note: this garden sculpture was assembled and disassembled at least a dozen times to get everything to fit together and on the final construction all parts were leveled to produce the dripping effect from plate to plate.
If you need more info I know you will shoot me off an email Â no problem.
Hope you like it.
