Beautiful lamps! I'm so sorry about your loss, too bad you didn't get to visit her but she would be proud of your work, it's fantastic!

I'm going to go to Tiki Iniki in August when I'm on vacation in Hawaii and I'm super excited!

Mahalo for the kind words! Tiki Iniki is gonna be somethin' with Bamboo Ben at the helm of the bamboozling.

Here are pics of the latest lamps, completed. The boxy one is spoken for, but the pointy number is for sale. PM me if you're interested! It's hard to see in the pics, but the bottom of the lamp with the pointy shells is purple and has little green sea glass pieces in there. The shells glow purple slightly from the resin that seeped inside them.














Mahalo!
Woody

Aloha!

TC member Forgotten Tikiman requested a custom lamp, for which he chose elements from some lamps I've done before. Here's the finished product. Fun project!



Mahalo Steve!

Hats off to you my friend!
Thanks for all the support for designing beautiful lamps for all the tiki bar build outs that I work on.
Mucho Maholos.
Cheers.

Thanks guys. I'm excited to try out some new styles this summer and play around with some resins and carvings. Lots of IOUs to do, then time to get ready for Tiki Oasis!!

Here are a few I finished this week.




MAHALO!
Woody

Man, Kahaka, just when I think you've made the best lamp ever, you make another one to top it! Glad to hear that your lamps are hanging at many prestigious tiki bars and home tiki spaces!

Do you keep any on-hand, or are they mostly commission pieces?

This thread should be made into a book. Your lamps are probably the best that this planet has ever seen. Totally terrific, Wendy

Wendy, I'll take compliments like that all day. How can that be topped? You're the best!

Polynesiac braddah! Mahalo plenty. I don't usually have any on hand unless I prepping for Oasis. I owe several to my buddies right now, so I'm gonna get going on those this summer. I like IOUs because then I get to try out new styles, and my pals have to take what they get! Haha.

Atomictikipunk!! You are really, really, really, really nice! Cheers!
