Materials and Tools:
drill and hex bits
galvanized steel sheets
treated pine boards
1. Build the frame using treated pine wood.
2. Attach metal sheet to frame using hex bits.
3. Use a metal grinder to cut off excess metal.
4. Attach another metal sheet to the frame in front of the first sheet. The first sheet will act as the backdrop while the front sheet will be what the water actually runs down.
5. Solder the copper pipes together at a 45-degree angle so that one pipe runs up the side of the frame and the other runs across the top of the frame forming an L shape.
6. Drill holes into the horizontal copper pipe at the top so that water will pour out of it.
7. Attach water hose to the copper pipe.
