The lucite panels are made using a mystery process that will not be revealed here....

The wood area surrounding the lucite is all poplar and I carved the simple design at the top and bottom.

The tiki are separate pieces with a v notch cut into the back so it can wrap the corner.

When it was assembled, I used a scooped gouge to texture the entire lamp for that hand cut lumber look.

The acrylic craft paint was mixed 50/50 with water so that when I stain OVER it , the stain permeates the paint for that aged crusty look.

A little hot glue for the sea grass and then lightly hit it with a torch for a more aged look.

Coat the entire thing with 3 coats of laquer, hand buff and your done.

Spermy, thats a real nice thing to say.. thanks.

MM,
I have to swing by the "creating" area more often. The lamp is top-notch, fine work, that. You know, it would be a great compliment to the frame you made for me. Remember that one, it was a while ago, many carvings ago for you?

Perfect match for that frame, perfect.

Well done...again.

What's up with San Diego?

All this art and now Oasis and TV shows and...

Monkeyman, that thing looks like something that should be hanging in the Mai Kai.
Completely chic.

...and fish tacos and cool bike trails and...
