Thanks for all the well-wishes Mom and baby are doing fine. Jon, I showed mom that cool tattoo and she said absolutely not! Big brother Goober was elated to finally meet his little Tater Tot but by now I'm sure he's wondering when that noisy little thing is going to go back where he came from


I'm not so good at furniture or architecture designs, I guess this would be considered Danish Modern? Colonial Spanish? Post-Modern Egyptian?


Whatever it is, I saw a Polynesian A-Frame and it inspired me for a patio tiki lamp design.

I don't need one right now but I thought I might as well post the design and maybe someone could use it. Then I thought "Hey, this would make a good mug shelf!" Then I thought "If it would make such a good mug shelf I bet someone already thought of it".

Well, here it is anyway


Could be made out of 2x6 for patio use, or pine 1x8 or 1x10 for indoor use. Could be tall and skinny with just a bottom crossmember for a light stand, or wider with lots of mug shelves. If it were loaded with mugs, it might not need the little "outrigger" feet to keep it from tipping over. For an patio light stand, a tumbled concrete garden wall-building stone on the bottom shelf would keep it balanced and still look organic. For patio use, a shelf extending out at 2 feet high would make a nice chair-side drink holder. Could router some designs in the sides. Burn, stain, varnish, etc. It would require some mitered cuts, but nothing that couldn't be done with a Skil saw.

Just a thought.

Mike, that looks like a great project for you. Then you'll have to fill it with your mugs. Wendy

Lance, Wendy, Greg - you are probably right - I will end up making a patio lamp like like just 'cuz. I added a picture above of the original lamp that inspired me too.

I am working on a design for a highly impractical tiki mug – it won’t stand up by itself, the opening is too small for large ice cubes, it would need to be filled with a funnel or a steady hand, it doesn’t hold very much, it can only be used with a straw, it has the potential to get you arrested or killed, and because it has to be glazed all the way around it will have stilt marks on one side. But I just couldn’t resist the call of Exotic Espionage!

Loosely based on James Bond’s Walther PPK, but 007 was never cool enough to have Tiki grips This master is made from snips & snails & puppy dog tails – well actually wood scraps, PVC pipe, sculpty clay, and lots of glue. It’s a little larger than the regulation issue PPK just so you can squeeze in a few more rounds of rum. Just the thing for some poolside undercover work at Tiki Oasis 12




It may not be such a great idea. For better or for worse, we live in a very gun-sensitive culture. And while the 2nd Amendment still makes “open carry” legal in theory, in practice it will bring you plenty of hassle. Taking your favorite legal firearm to the mall will almost guarantee a free trip downtown and a complimentary cavity search. An orange muzzle on the mug would help but that would make it ugly!

I love guns and that is the coolest gun ever. I was lucky enough to make the TNT for Sandra Dee and I bet she'd love to have this too. But you are right it could get someone hurt, that's how good it looks. Super cool. MadDogMike you are so genius. Wendy

That's pretty risky, MDM. Not the combination of firearms and hard liquor . . . we dig that here in the Tiki Wastelands, but in using the term "Spanish Colonial" on TC. You might as well have said "Caribbean" or "Plastic Mug." Livin' on the Edge, MadDog-style.

I like the mug. It's a straight shooter by any number of definitions.
