I LOVE that lamp! I spend my time at our beaches with my head down searching for seaglass - some places are treasure troves of the stuff! I'm partial to the glacier blues and the VERY rare reds. Nice job - and hear you on that resin thing! I have to tell myself "Patience, Grasshopper. Patience." when working with it!

Polynesiac, Tikiskip, and Mr. Pupu Pants- Thanks so much... I really appreciate the compliments, especially coming from top notch artists like yourselves. Just trying to keep up, because you guys keep setting the bar higher and higher!

Bill- Thanks Man... always appreciate your compliments.

beadtiki- The royal blues are my favorite too. I used some pretty cool sea green colors too, but it didn't photograph too well. The sea glass looks super cool illuminated. I should have made 2 of these things... one to sell and one to keep!

Wow Woody!!
When the time comes (and the budget allows) I'd definitely like see if you could make one of those for my basement.
That is just one of my all-time favorite lamps. Soooooooooo cool.

Pupu, you need to try your hand at some lamps. You'll knock 'em outta the park!

Murphdog! Thanks again... looks great in the bar!

Nacho, thanks my dawg. You might recognize these next shots, being that you own the ceiling in them.

A new lamp. It's for sale in the marketplace.








Playin' around with that sea glass.


This little bugger is a newer one too.

These lamps and others will be available at Notch's Ku Bar at Tiki Oasis... Back to work!

Woody

Sure wish I'd taken shop way back in high school! I'm trying to figure out how you make the slatted bottoms on those tapa lamps! Very nice!

Nice shots, Notch. Look at the dollar darts stuck in the barrel behind the lamp. We need to keep at it until we have enough dollars to fill it full of rum.

Beadtiki, you need to get yourself a compound miter saw (atleast that's what I use). Cuts perfect 45s.

COOL stuff, Woody! Ya better get to work and get yer lamp stock up for Oasis. I remember last year when they just started flying outta the KuBar.

Remember Oasis attendees, if you see Kahaka's lamps at Oasis, don't think, just say, "I'll buy it!" Last year some folks were cryin' when they came back to find the lamp they were "thinking about" SOLDsoldSoLD!

Thanks to everyone that purchased a lamp from me at Oasis! Much obliged, much obliged (as Omar from the Wire might say).

Found some puffers over the summer and made this mobile (not for use above a crib... I have many holes in my fingers that say so).

I'm still tryin' to figure out the bulb color configuration. 3 blues, center red? Any thoughts about how it looks?
