KAHAKA - I really dig your work. The Flickr pics are nice, and I'm sure handy, but with your level of work you outta consider firing up your own website. Sophista-tiki and I use Yahoo SiteBuilder and like it.

Super work.

Thanks you all... For the time being, I settled on the configuration in the 2nd pic (until I find me some more Christmas bulbs!). I must have done 7 different set ups until I just plain gave up!

Robb, thanks for the heads up on the Yahoo site builder! Your page looks awesome. The Flikr page is pretty hokey, I know. I need to get my arse in gear and make a more official looking page!

Now who wants to set one up for me?

Made this one for my buddy Eloy who's whipping together a tiki room.

Was watching Pirates of the Carribean when I thought about cutting wood to look like crab legs for the side of this lamp. I was looking through my tapa stash and was stoked to find a similiar squiggly line pattern on one of the pieces of tapa.

Used a 6 sided Asian hat that Notch found out hunting. Torched it, accidentally burned holes through it, patched it with tapa and abaca matting, and stained it to look old. Now when you look up underneath it you can see some of the tapa patches. Kinda happy about the accidents.

My first for 2011. Whoopity doo! This one is for a customer. I used a rattan ring that a buddy of mine found for the center, then built the frame around it and attached the tapa and rope stuffs. When I coated it with polyurethanen(because it's gonna hang outside), all the glue I had used failed. I had to wait for the son of gun to dry, then reglue just about everything. You live and learn.

Lights on. Be careful not to stare directly into Lake Surfer's Kava Kava Man's eyes in the background...


Lights off:


T'anks for the peeks.

Woody

Nice lamps Kahaka. Did you coat the tapa cloth with polyurethane too?

Thanks Man. Ya, coated the tapa. Tapa absorbs moisture and will mildew if you don't treat it for the outdoors. I should have coated the tapa first before I started the gluing process. Next time!
