Build a Sand Fountain

Updated:2014-05-22 10:59:55
An aquarium sand fountain pushes sand through a length of tubing, creating the illusion of an underwater waterfall. If you have access to woodworking supplies, you can create your own sand fountain with Plexiglas and common supplies found in pet and aquarium stores.

Instructions as follows:

                                                                

 

Firstly, cut a sandstone slab to size, using a power saw. Cut one of the long edges of the sandstone at a 45-degree angle.
Secondly, cut the Plexiglas pieces to size, using a power saw. Cut one 4-inch edge of the 1-by-4 piece at a 45-degree angle. Sand the cut edges of the Plexiglas to make them smooth.
Thirdly, cover the 1-by-4-inch Plexiglas piece with masking tape. Drill about 30 1/4-inch holes in the Plexiglas piece to allow sand and air to flow through.
Fourthly, place masking tape 3 inches from each of the 4-inch edges of the Plexiglas. Drill centered holes through the masking tape and remove the tape.
Fifthly, attach the 4-inch edge of the 4-by-12-inch Plexiglas piece to the angled edge of the sandstone, using silicone caulk. The Plexiglas should tilt away from the sandstone.
Sixthly, using caulk, attach the angled edge of the 1-by-4 Plexiglas piece 1 inch down from the 4-by-12 piece, right above the top hole. The 1-by-4 piece should slant down at an angle.
Seventhly, place the other two small Plexiglas pieces on the larger Plexiglas piece in a “V” shape so that the point of the “V” is about ? inch under the bottom hole drilled in the larger Plexiglas piece. The “V” should point to the sandstone, and the edges of Plexiglas should project 1 inch out toward the sandstone. Attach the Plexiglas in place, using caulk.
