Yes Chris I did.
Had to make the paper globe first
then tied net around all.
This light has many steps to it.

Here are the clips I made for this light.
There are 20 of these in this light alone.
All made by hand.
Also got the rest of the ribs in.
But it needs more.
Going to need to bend up some rattan.

Skip - I'm always surprised to see what you've been up to every time I check out your thread! I especially like seeing how you turn such odd bits into art.

Thanks Robb you are the man with the velvet touch.

I like to show off cool new tools when I find em and this one
works great on rattan. ( $24.99 at Jo-ann fabric)
Don't think it would cut bamboo.
It is made by Midwest Products you know the guys who make balsa wood
for models.
Really helps to make cuts as seen in last picture.

That's a pretty snappy set of scissors, Skip. I like. The tool expenses sure add up, don't they?

And KAHAKA I love the tools!!
Just think the really cool early lights were made
by a guy with one or two tools.
Not the huge tool arsenals most of us have.

Here's my first light of 2011,

Lookie, lookie new light cookie.
This one is blue, they always want the colors you don't have.
Light was sold before it was made.
You know who you are, hope you like.
