The water trickles out of holes in the horizontal copper pipe and cascades down the sheet metal making a soothing sound and look.

Materials and Tools:

metal grinder
soldering iron
drill and hex bits
hex screws
galvanized steel sheets
copper pipes
treated pine boards
hose

Figure A - Attaching the sheet metal to the wooden frame.

Steps:

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.

Figure B - Soldering the copper pipes together.

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.
