That's a great piece, man. Could have used a little pound under the dowel, with a 'waterfall-ish' covering the wood, or a clear acrylic rod, but this is a great piece on it's own.

Good luck man

Very cool man!
Nice sculpting on the knife and glass!
I like that it floats. Are there rules to get up there? Jump packs only?

Final piece came out great dude. The vines/roots look real, very nice work dude.
What is the green ground foliage? Looks pretty cool!

I know! >< I spent all my time building the island part with it sitting on a plastic cup, then when it came time to attach it I searched all around the house to find something to use and settled on one of those thick plastic straws from some mega-drink that I kept for making pipes with, but it just wasn't strong enough to support the weight and kept falling over. In a last desperate attempt to make the whole thing stand up so I could take pictures (I wouldn't have had access to the Internet later in the day to upload it in time for the contest) I stuck the dowel inside the straw to give it support.

Oh, that's little bits of moss. I was going to flock the top of the island, but when I went to the only store around here that had any in walking distance, they were out, so I grabbed this and used a few pieces to create a grass-look.
