Living in Maine, I probably have better access to lobster traps than anyone.
what are you willing to spend? I could probably buy and ship you a trap if you can wire it yourself. Or I can look around for ones already turned into lamps.

Are you looking for a lobster trap light or a fishtrap light (ala the big bamboo conical ones like you see in Trader Vic's Atlanta and Emeryville, Mai Kai, and hence-Haole Tiki:) )?. I do make those up to six feet in length; they look just like the originals. Split bamboo with a centerpole and bound with natural raffia cord.. I'm about to have the materials to make around six of them..Here's one of mine in ceiling situ, far left of the picture.

Awesome! How'd you make it? Same as the other ones you've posted in a different thread? The wood on these look more like strips. I'd be interested in trying to make something like that.
