It may sound complicated considering the tools, machinery and steps involved in fulfilling this feat on your own, but the end result, is definitely worth it. For years you’ll enjoy the unique cut and design of your homemade and personally carved fountain. Read on for complete details, instructions, and precautions when making this fountain.
