Well not really, the real work starts now.
If I can get just half of what's in my head made should be some cool stuff.
Provided the neighbor's don't stop by as often with booze as they did last year I should
get some lights made.

Had thought about vending at Hukilau but don't know if I would have enough made by then.

Thanks hang10tiki.
This is why I use C7 light bulbs, or Candelabra base sockets.
They don't need much power and they put out all you need for these type of lights
and the low watt means low heat so no fires, plus less electric usage.
It's a win, win, win.
You could also use 15 watt exit lights if more light is needed but most of the
time this is not the case.

If it's just a "hey I don't have the outlet" there are other low cost ways around that too.

Going to have a few new lights in a few weeks got some cool new ones commin.

Need to start sellin as the lights are piling up like the cartoon Santa Claus Is Coming To Town.
Need to get Kris Kringle to take them to all the good tiki boys and girls, but then that would only
get rid of like what three?

Thanks Eric!


Here's a new float type light, or fish float light.
It's a big one.

This is a smallish light, was going to make this a table light
but went with the hanging light instead.

Got lots of small shades to work with, going to do some table lamps I
think.

Do people need small table lamps in their home bars?

Great work Skip. I have a few small table lamps in my home bar. I use them to cast a warm glow in different areas. They work great to set a mood and light small areas of artifacts and help folks find a spot to set a cocktail. Keep up the great work.

Skip-love the new lights. The large fish float looks exceptionally amazing. The interior float looks like it has both a frosted and hammered appearance. Did you find it that way or has it been modified? I don't think I've ever seen anything like it.

Saw this little bad boy in person... Excellent piece. The tying is beautiful, and Skip's passion shows in the detail and finish.

Thanks Trav! will try to make some table lamps too.
Buy the bomb Trav!

Stacy that one is a bit smaller than the yellow float I sent you, but the red float
here is a tad larger.
But on the cork one I got that idea watching some old western and they had those
oil lamps hanging in the bar, well this is styled after those lights.
And thank you!
you are one of my favorite customers for sure!

Rvic that is a plastic globe it came with a pebble finish, ya never know if a globe is
going to work till you buy it and tie it. (had to frost it myself)
But my wife and I go to many antique and other shows to find light parts and other cool stuff
it's hard to find the right globe to tie as you need the right shape, right color and
then many times when you find a good one the dealer wants more than I would sell it for
after I make it into a light.
Then you need to find the rope, it takes a ton of rope to tie these floats!
On light parts you find it where you find it, and that is everywhere.

Eric your passion for knowing the meaning of the tribal this and that plus the facts behind the
stuff you make makes my head spin.
Keep up the good work.
