Where do you get the glass bowl?

I got mine at Old Time Pottery, it's a closeout store kind of like Big Lots, but they also sell non-closeout goodies, too.
This one was probably originally from Target or some other department store, but was a whole lot cheaper because of where I bought it.
I would imagine checking out garage sales would be pretty good, too.

Any heavier, food-safe bowl should work: glass, ceramic, copper, etc.

I like it!! What is the thing that you attach to the bottom of the bowl that the pole screws into?

It's a part from the plumbing section of the hardware store, it's called a floor flange. Should run you about $3 or so. even if you want to put your birdbath on a deck you can use 2 of them, one to connect it to the floor/railing, etc, so you don't have to bury it, and the other to the bowl.

here's an in depth tutorial of my steps
It might help, let me know if you have other questions, though!

Oh thank you!! That's very helpful, I think I might try this! If I do I'll take a photo for you.

Awesome, I'd love to see pictures if you do it!
