Aloha Bruddah!
Some "delicious"(ono!)work there cuz! Keep up the good work! Get in da truck and cruise da town, find yourself some logs! One of my fellow carvers follows tree trimmers around to pick up the scraps. Maybe you could call a few companies and see if theyll let you grab some of da kine while they clean up! Just a suggestion...Anyway, great work on the mask brah, keep it up!

Malama Pono!

Wow!

Did I mention...Wow!

Holy Cow Ric! Where are you going to put these? I'd love to see pictures of where they end up in the fantastically tiki scheme of things at your house.

Took a break from carving. Decided to make another lamp. This one is with the large scallop shells. The shells are about 4-5 inches wide.





As always, thanks for looking.

Aloha!!!

Ona, what did you put the shells over? I have some large reddish scallop shells I got for a couple bucks & was trying to think what to mount them on to make a lamp.
[edit]Duh! First page has directions. Thanks Ona!

THAT... is a beautiful lamp. Those larger shells REALLY make that thing pop off the page. I have to say I like them better than the smaller shells. MUCH better, in fact.

Fantastic job, Ona! I can't wait to see it in person.. and soon!


I should bring some rum....

The shells look awesome, both lit and unlit. Very inspiring.

Ona, just beautiful, beautiful work on all your stuff. I like it all and really love your lamps. I was wondering if you could give a few tips on the wattage of bulbs you recommend to use in the tiki lamps. Do you use different wattages for different sizes and any safety concerns you can share with us?

I hope to make a lamp soon, like the rest of the folks you've inspired.

Thanks everyone for the kind words..Jim as far as wattage goes, I use 40 watts in most lamps. just enough light to give a decent glow. a couple of little ones I used 7 watts. you don't want it so hot that you burn your lamps. and use the proper cords and such. Good luck and post pics when your are done.
