Step 1:

Create 2 boxes of the same size using the 2 x 8 wood pieces. So 4 pieces for the width and 4 pieces for the length of the boxes. Once you have the boxes, cut 3 pieces of the same size as the pieces you used for the length of the box length to cover the bottom. Then stack the two boxes together. With the other 2 x 8 wood, create the sides and top of the water wall. Make the sides an inch taller than your glass.

Step 2:

Using the 2 x 12 wood, make a divider for the glass and the rocks. Measure the inside width of the box, from one end to another. Cut the wood and place it just in front of the glass holder.

Step 3:

Using the 1 x 1, make a holder for the glass, this will be 2 pieces of wood that you will attach to the bottom center. Make sure the space between the two is just as thick as the glass. Once done, paint everything in black.

Step 4:

Take the pond liner and line 1 side of the box where you will put the glass.

Step 5:

Sit the glass in between the holder. Add some screws on the top front and back to secure the glass.

Step 6:

Cover the hole of the glass door with silicone.

Step 7:

Drill the holes on the tube and where you will put the C-clamps, 3 pieces on the top and the other 3 for the sides. Attach the rubber tubing using the C-clamps.
