Been going back thru your pix and your Drum Base Tikisare the beginning of something I was planning and trying to find a way to duplicate. In fact that search is how I found TC.
You imagine a home walkway with these little Malibu lights along the sidewalk leading up to the house or garden.
Now take a set of tikis with the Base hollowed out (drum base) and set them over the lights. Look Nice? they may need to be cast from a high density foam to get the price down to afordable.
Thinkin?

Howzit braddah Ben,

I'm going to look for a pic I have on one of my 1000 disk of a Ku I did with my drum base bottom. I sat it over a red garden spot light and it looked ONO! It really looked sweet. I don't have a flat yard so lining my drive way with tikis over lights would not happen BUT! I can see what you are seeing! I'm eye to eye with you there.
Even if you were to take 2 tikis and put them on each side of your enterance and have maybe some red, orange or wat'eva lights comming threw the drum bottom would be sweet ya and now if you had the whole walk way lined HO BRAH! you would be da man!

Like you said mass production would be da bes! Crazy Al came out with a resin 3 footer I think it was and it came out nice...I got one. It will have to be heavyier. Plaster?

Anyways, I'm all in if your not carving anymore. I'll send you da drum base bottom and you mass it! A terrific idea but I dont have a clue how or where to start.

Thats what I've been tring to find out.
I said High density foam because Some types ar Heat resistant.For stability, a 1/2"by12" hole drilled into the bottom where you lodge a 2' piece of rebar, Shove it into the ground over the light and it ain't goin nowhere. Think cement would cost too much. I like it already.
Think, Think, Thanks
