whoa... I missed your last post - those lamps are too cool AND going to the Kona Club?!?!?! Awesome! They'll look great with B-bens work...fit right in. So how many tiki bars have your lamps now?

Those sconces are excellent. THose for home or for sale? or???? You got the magic touch for the lights. nice job!!!

PS - I still want to do that trade...just been super busy...

Thanks you guys for nice words. Poly, I just about went bananers when Doug considered my lamps for the Kona. I was completely blown away when I dropped them off before the place opened. 'Boo Ben's work's friggin' bitchin' (that was 5 apostrophes in a row). I still needs to make me a visit out there... I haven't seen the place since it opened.

Here's my latest...







I tried staining the bamboo after torching it, like I did on the sconces.

another beauty of a lamp! I dig the cut bamboo bottom - it looks time consuming, but the effect on the light looks totally cool.

Yeah, those bamboo bottoms are a bugger. Just ask OnaTiki... he's the bamboo bottom king!

Monkeyman, I'm no master... still trying to figure this lamp making thing out. Your latest lamp is cooler than anything I've seen!

New lamp for the VLV Ku tiki bar... made this a while back but didn't post it. I also just put pics of it up on Nacho's (creator of the Ku bar) collection of stuff.

Kahaka,

I've always found this form of lighting, extremely intriguing. It was, in fact, my search for tiki lighting that led me to TC. You should make a few commercial models and approach a chain store. I mean that in a sincerely positive way.

Very nice lamps! They remind me of the "rental only" lamps at Oceanic Arts -- the ones I can never convince them to sell me! I love the look of the little bamboo rounds on the bottom. Are those just cut to short lengths and glued to the bottom?

Carving too? Once you start, you'll be hooked and want to add little carved pieces to all your new lamps. Love you lamps - I saw the ones at FI in persona few weeks past and they were HOT! you do fine work.

You going to Oasis?
