Here are some new lamps. I hadn't worked on anything in while. I am doing some router carving to add to my personal touch.











I like the traditional ones too.

Your router carving is very good too!

Best use I've seen for ugly thrift store glass vases yet. Good job, man.

Tikiskip: I'm having fun with the router. I learn new tricks each time I use it.

Hale Tiki: Cheap yes, but ugly? I think they clean up nice. Like putting lipstick on a pig. I've got one in the works for a friend that I think you'll say now that's beautiful!! I'll be posting soon.

Gwen: Everyone here on TC inspired me, so go it!

They do.

Ugly by themselves, beautiful in a lamp.

I dig it. And the hole in the top means being able to put a light in. Brilliant!

Can't wait to see the new ones.

Hale Tiki: Here ya go. Here's one with cheap thrift store glass that I think is totally tiki. My friend TikiRootsRocka (Mike) found the glass & asked me to make him a lamp. His request was "Dark Wood & Tribal. I did some router work to both side of each shape. I think I hit his request on the money. He was stoked when I gave it him at the last ITMP.
The router work staring.

Assembled without electrical.

Electrical in & hanging up

Here are the last ones I posted hanging up.




Thanks again to all.

Nice! Dig it. I think you definitely hit on your own style.

I still think that the glass by itself is ugly as sin, and not in a good way, but man, do they ever shine in those lamps.

Pun intended, I guess.

Nice !! I appreciate the use of those mosaic candle holders. I see those things all over at the goodwill shops and it never occured to me that those would ever have a use to anyone other than candle holders, but you did a great job of combining them into hawaiian style lamps and really creating your own style. keep up the good work !!

HaleTiki: Thanks again for looking. Your right, some of them alone aren't much to look at. They have to be the right shape & color to be incorporated into a tiki design. I found a really cool one the other day but it was pink & purple. Even I couldn't see tiki in that one.

Tipsy McStagger: Thanks! I like looking for found objects to incorporate into a lamp design. The router work is becoming a passion for me too.

That new one with the brown glass inlaid mosaic look is just wonderful. And no doubt time consuming to make. I hope you are charging a good price when you sell these.

The good thing is since he "found the glass"
Someone else made the glass part.
And you can find em cheap at the thrift stores.
To make that yourself and try to make any money would be hard.

Dam the time spent with the router is long enough.

I wondered if that was the case... and yeah, time consuming enough just doing the router work.
