I have problems with the resin I use.
Can take forever to dry.
It does dry but can stay tacky for some time.
Don't know if it's the brand I use, or a, that's the way Resin is thing.
Do you have this problem?

The Sperm Whale... I think it's more OCD than patience. However, I do teach 7 and 8 year olds, but that requires a whole different type of patience. Ha.

LoriLovesTiki... Go for it. You'll be happy you did!

Big Kahuna... Thanks again, man!

TikiPops... Get a good one. Cheap ones don't work as well, and you'll end up buying a better one like I did (actually, I stole the good one from my wife and bought her a better one).

Swanky... I'll give it a go when you're ready. I've never made one before, so who knows how it might turn out. Ha! Never had any resin come out, but I have used too much hardener which caused the resin to pull away from the wood. I usually do several layers, and some seeps to the back of the wood, which really gives it something to grip to. I don't rough the sides... The jigsaw does enough to take care of that.

TikiSkip... I've gotten the ratio down pretty well now with stuff I'm using. 10 drops of the catalyst to 1 oz. of resin. But, during the warmer months I go with a 8 to 1 ratio because the resin has hardened too quickly and cracked on hot days.

Haha! Very true, my friend.

8 clones headed to Orlando. 17 more of a different species to make and send that way.








Cheers,
Woody

I really am not sure how I missed this, but your lamps are stunning as always and I really like your tutorial on making one of them. It is always nice when a master shares some of the knowledge they have acquired. It is really appreciated.

Aloha ya'll,

Here's an experiment I just wrapped up. Tangaroa lamp with some flower panels. It's sold, but I'll be making more for Tiki Oasis!



Cheers,
Woody

Thanks again for the compliments!

Well, I didn't get around to incorporating any more of the Tangaroa image in the lamps because I got distracted by a router. Ha.

Here's a preview of lamps I'll have at Tiki Oasis at the Moai Bar booth near the stage!

We'll also be selling mugs, Hawaiiana, and Aloha wear.










Hope to see some of you there!

Cheers,
Woody
