Post How To Make A Sand Fountain

I'll put up another video of it working when everything has dried out. I did test it with play sand before putting on the base and painting it.

Thanks guys. Turned out pretty good for my first design. I wish the sand particles where a bit bigger. Playsand size would work but I can't find any play sand that is white and I don't want to spray paint the sand. The commercial grade landscape sand is just a little too fine. It might look better if I had made it taller.

Great job. Does the sand get recycled thru the bottom hole whet the V scoop is? That is outstanding!
