Here are the newest lamps.

#5 is a large woven bamboo lamp. I used pieces of some leftover bamboo fencing and wove it into a basket form. The bottom is 1" pieces of bamboo cut so that the light shines through. (Another very labor intensive lamp, but again worth the effort)

The coconut mug shown for size comparison. This lamp is approx 20" across and 16" tall.













#6 is a small 6" round by 12" tall tapa fabric lamp also with bamboo bottom.





Still have more ideas... This stuff is fun!!

Aloha

I love the effect of the bamboo grid on the bottom. Nice work Ona.

Really fantistic stuff Onatiki. I too love the look of that bammboo bottom. Very nice.

Wish I had a Home Depot to frequent. All I have is an over priced under stocked Lumber Yard, and an Ace Hardware thats even worse. They've been saying for 2 or 3 years they're going to build one near here, but you know the kinds of things THOSE people say....

Here is #7

It's 12" across by 12" tall with the bamboo bottom and carved wood accents.












This will probably be the last one for awhile as the sun has finally returned and I must go back to work outside.

Monkeyman.... I'm sure a trade can be arranged.

Mahalo

Absolutely brilliant Onatiki. If I could put two wires together without half of San Diego going dark, I might be tempted to give it a go myself.
