    That's for the next one sorry oops
    :doh:

    the BOX is very nice.

    [​IMG]
    Made supports form 1/2" mitred to fit the corners.

    [​IMG]
    The volcano sits on these

    [​IMG]
    Like this

    [​IMG]
    Glued in place

    [​IMG]
    I added "dots" in the corners to niche the volcano base into.

    [​IMG]
    I filed the cornes of the base to notch into the dots

    [​IMG]
    Dots nice

    [​IMG]
    Hows them apples...no worries about the ports not being sturdy.


    [​IMG]
    I used a grommet and elbow to make the Volcano spurter...that's a technical term.

    [​IMG]
    That's a purdy spurter there...

    [​IMG]
    I think preparation H might be the answer...

    [​IMG]
    I used enough tubing to make the volcano remoavable for cleaning

    [​IMG]
    A clean volcano is a happy volcano

    [​IMG]
    The loop actually helps lock the base into the dots.

    [​IMG]
    Volcano in a box. The space under it is for lights.

    [​IMG]
    I was going to use aluiminum on the top but I like this better.

    [​IMG]
    Top lighting could easily be accomplished by laying a couple of CCL tubes across the top, or by using a 110VAC CCL in a desklamp.

    [​IMG]
    The lid is two pieces...one exactly the size of the interoir and one exactly the size of the exterior...both beveled and polished. No gasket required. Easy access.

    Yep the base gets closed in with a piece of mirror to reflect the lights up and a 3" strip runs around the bottom to hide that.

    Just got back from a 6 hour MC ride... and now here's the shots I took before I left.

    I'll head to the shop for a few minutes and see about getting some action

    [​IMG]
    Hawt Sechs. Betcha never saw ports like that.

    [​IMG]
    This thing belongs in a museum

    [​IMG]
    I remade the top. Fusing two pieces together looked crappy to me so I made one from 1/2" material on the router...it fits perfectly and is incredibly clear.

    [​IMG]
    That's the view...

    [​IMG]
    I think the best way to top light this is with a desklamp and a 110VAC UV CCL light...putting stuff on top will block the view.

    [​IMG]
    There's the lights.

    Before I ship this out I will mount three switches and make a cover plate.

    I have the vids of the res in action at night. It's stunning. May take a while to upload.

    MAGMA! That's Dasani bottle water: no dye.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    That's pretty astounding. I had no idea it would look like that. It's all just lighting...

    [​IMG]
    Even under clourescent lighting the fluid appears red from the side.

    [​IMG]
    From the top it's a constantly changing Fire of colors
