Nice lights by the way.
Love the way you do the Tapa on these.
Need to do more with Tapa, I can't bring myself to cut it.
It's like cutting up a Picasso and making a collage with the parts.

I know how you feel, Skip. But I found a supplier of cheap, modern tapa, that I'm not broken up about cutting. Maybe that would help.

I don't know about all that, Ben, but I'm honored to be a part of it. My Uncle David grew up on Kauai, and lives in Lihue near his Mom, who is now 106 (born and raised on Kauai). He wrote a book a few years back about the Coco Palms, which was mentioned in this thread here: http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=27511&forum=1&hilite=coco%20palms
He was an extra in South Pacific and palled around with Mitzi Gaynor back during the filming. I got extra excited when I saw that you're including some Coco Palms elements in the build out. Seems meant to be. Mahalo plenty for the kind words!

My Grandpa's first wife Anna died at 106 in Lihue on Tuesday with my Uncle David and Aunt Marion by her side, just as these lamps leave for Tiki Iniki in Princeville. I was hoping to be able to visit her and other family members on the next visit to Kauai after Tiki Iniki had opened. These lamps are dedicated to her.







Cheers,
Woody

Thanks you all. She was a great lady. She's in a pic on page 366 of the Coco Palms book with my Aunt Marion, Uncle David, and Grace Buscher Guslander that managed the hotel for many years. Here's the pic:



Here are a few lamps I'm working on to help pay for my maiden voyage to the Mai Kai in April. I can't explain how freakin' excited I am. These will be for sale when they're done:






Mahalo!
Woody

Forgot to give due props to my pal Notch for supplying the carved pieces on the box shaped lamp! I split 'em to create space for the resin center parts. T'anks braddah!!

Thanks guys! You make some darned nice lamps yourselves!

I need to finish these things... Waiting for the resin to dry is like, well, waiting for resin to dry. Takes a lot longer during the colder seasons. Hurry up spring!
