    woah...that is So Cool!....but..problem, with water feature is..look at that rust it's already got, means the metal won't make for a good water container.....it will need to be coated in ..something...non toxic...........have you considered turning it into a really cool firepit? Lot less work!

    Sand it, paint it with a metal paint, put clear coat, maybe turn it upside down, put a hole in center, find a rod that u could run a hose thru to male a mushroom waterfall!!?
  • That is way super cool! I'd leave it as is, spray on a clear rust protector on the outside then try maybe Flex Seal in clear on the inside. You could run water into it and have it overflow or have a bubbly fountain thing inside it. That's an awesome gift!

      i like the idea of the flex seal but it does not leak I am looking at maybe a copper exterior with a blue interior a pump with a waterfall. And some kind of nautical accents I have sea shells already I just need a feature piece for the water fall and maybe a few koi

    great idea.... you might have to put a pond liner on the inside... to protect it from rusting... but they are readily available at a home improvement store... then just do a decorative edge... plumbing it would be easy too
