I wanted a fountain for my small backyard/patio and came up with this idea. With some trial and error, after a few try's I got it just right. The next one will be easier. I used all repurposed wood pallets and some 100-year-old water pipe (Redwood) that I got from a job-related work site. It works out well for a Plant stand as well of the wonderful sound of the water falling. The lights make it a joy on the eyes at night.
