tabletop fountain

I am attempting to create a tabletop fountain for my house. I already acquired an 80gph pump with flow control. My question is, what materials could i use to create the central piece from which the water comes out? I read a few books on the subject but they didnt help. Also, where can i buy those materials? thank you in advance.

You did not say what your fountain "should be" so I can't help you with materials. What do you want your fountain to look like? Stone, metal, tile, plastic, wood.... You can make your fountain out of anything you like.

stone table fountain

I would say hit up a landscaping place, a place that sells stone and stuff. Look through all the landscaping materials they offer nd see what you like ....

Actual construction of your fountain should be easy. The place I go to even has rocks with hole drill in the center so you do not see a pipe or hose sticking out where the water comes out ....

i am thinking of adding lights and "smoke" effects to the fountain. what type of lights should i use? any suggestions about where i can buy them? what item produces the "smoke" or "fog" effect? is it a special generator? can it use the water that is being circulated? thank you
