Say thanks Clarita! Glad you like. Where are you from? Clarita makes me think of Santa Clara, the next town over from good old San Jose where I'm from...

Cheers,
Kahaka

Brilliant stuff!! I have no artisitic ability to really speak of but I think I may have found something that I could be actually capable of building. One question: how do you rig the bulb assembly so that you can get to it to replace the bulb? Looks like maybe the shade part is sort of supended from a cross piece that holds the bulb and can be removed.

Kahaka,
Beautiful work! I really like the style of those bamboo bottoms. Would love to have one of your lamps swinging from my ceiling.

Thank ya Surf tiki... You got it... sometimes I just use a piece of wood as a cross member to fix the socket to. Other times I'll leave a center cross member when I cut out the plywood top. A free cross member makes the angle of the dangle adjustable. With a fixed cross member you've gotta make sure the hole you drill for your socket assembly is dead on so that the lamp hangs right.

theded1 PM if you're interested in a light! Mahalo!!!!!!

I wanted to post some pics of a lamp I did for theded1 to prove that I'm still alive. I haven't been doing a lot of these lately because I kinda got burned out on 'em, but theded1 inspired me with this one that he customized to his liking:









Mahalo for lookin'!

Just picked up the lamp at FI tonight. I am truly honored to have this work of art in our home. If you're not already on Kahaka's waiting list, make the commitment before it's too late! Woody, thanks again.

Yeah, I second that emotion.




Now, if we can just get Mondo to not spill beer all over it...

...and the table...

...and you...

...we'll be o'kay!

Mai Tai, good ta meet ya as well! Good times, good times.

Thayer- Yeah, Mondo+beer+lamponthetable= neardisaster. I think we'll make Mondo wear a beer helmet and a bib next time and leave the lamp in the car. Haha Mondo! Luckily the lamp didn't get any beer patina... You rule at waitressing by the way. Thanks for puttin' up with us!

Glad you like the lamp, theded1... see you at the Island!

Nice! I finally got mine all hung up last weekend and I am still looking at it lit up every night and saying, "Damn, that is a beautiful lamp. It really makes the room." My girlfriend agrees and has even suggested the possibility of getting back on the list in the future. Thanks again, Kahaka!

Incredible work Kahaka, I really like it! I'm from Argentina, and I live here, Clarita is my nickname, my real name is Carla, but a friend start calling me clara because he said that Carla was to difficult to pronounce and because of an anime that he said I look like (clarita the friend of Heidi, girl of the alps, I think it wasn't a very popular show there, but here every body saw it some time as kids )...
Best wishes! Keep rocking!!

Nacho! Glad you dig the lamp, but I want it back... JUST FRICKIN' KIDDING MAN!

Formerly theded1, you should order another one whenever you're ready. When is your girlfriend's birthday? A lamp would make a nice birthday gift (nudge nudge). Just kidding!

Clarita, you rock and roll. Thanks for words of kindness from Argentina!

Woody
