I have been meaning to post this for awhile , but have been so damn
busy with work.....so here yah go.I had this lamp made custom by Kahaka
with slight variations on this drum lamp, and what a gem it is.
I look forward to ordering more in the future.
Mahalos for the great work as always Woody, you truly are a master.

Here are a few lamps I've done in the last few months. Haven't posted much up here in a long while.






This one has a resin bottom (fish net sunk in the red resin)... first one I've tried. Fun stuff.

LOTS of cool lamps appearing here on TC these days... keep it going!!!!

PEACES!

Top notch!!!

The red resin with fishnet is killer!

Your creativity is amazing with these, and they are jam packed with detail!

Damn my low ceilings!

These lamps are even better in person. Incredible work. If I may be so bold, I will offer an answer to Polynesiac's question: I believe that is Notch's bar they were photographed in. I was just there on Saturday. I could be wrong ( I didn't say I was sober).
