So back to the knot thing.
Here is a rail or fence that you can make with the Eye Splice.
Kinda cool, and hey it's just rope.
Can't cost that much.

Nice rope/knot work John!

Could I trouble you with a question?

My wife picked up some dried starfish the other day at Goodwill, I'd like to use them like you and Blake do with the lamps you're sending me. Do you have a process for making them less brittle so they'll stand up to running the lamp cord through the center?

Thanks much!

Chris

I would guess you got what they call a sugar starfish I think.
The sugar starfish would be the worst to use as they break easy.
It's best to use a jungle or knobby starfish.
But you may be able to seal it with shellac or glue.
But do a test first.
PLUS wear a mask when you drill these!!!
Good luck!!

Hey Chris here are the different starfish.
The first one is a Sugar starfish.


Next is the knobby starfish.


Last is the jungle starfish.
This one came from the Kahiki ceiling, see the holes.
Not all of them had a light coming from them.

Thanks for those pictures John, I've definitely got sugar starfish. Guess I'll do some more looking for the jungle, it seems to be the most sturdy from what I've read.

Are you working on any cool new basket lamps?

Chris

Got a nice package from Tikiskip today containing two totally awesome lights The shipping was quick, packaging was excellent and the lights are both of outstanding build quality with an amazing patina, you'd swear they just came out of some ancient smoke-filled bar somewhere Really nice, thanks John!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN TC!!!!!



Here are a few ideas for a tikified Halloween.
These lights fit in these mugs for a flicker type glow.
You can also take these lights apart and make a light up
blowfish for your rear view mirror in your car.

Here is a third and my largest paper
globe tiki light.
You can see one of the rods I put in the center to
hold this light together.
It will have nine ribs up the sides and each one of those ribs
push upwards so you need to have the rods to hold that force down.
