oh, *MAN*, Monkeyman!!

I have never seen any lamp made by anybody anywhere at any time that was cooler or AS cool when lit up. Those sillouetes(sp?) are HYP-mo-ti-zing!

I too just GOTTA start spending more time on "Creating"!! I have been seriously missing out!!

Too bad a lamp like that can't be mass marketed (*NOT* so we could devalue its worth or undercut its price - rather, so THAT WE COULD ALL HAVE ONE!!!). How cool would that be if all our fine carvers' beautiful works could be as accessable as Witcos were in the day. Just pop by Sears and pick up a Bamboo Ben bedroom set, a Gecko display shelf and a Benzart tiki to go along with your Monkeyman frames and swag lamp. Ahhhhh, shopping made Paradise!

This is definitely not a new style of lamp but since everybody else has made one I thought I would give it a try also.

The resin base tutorial from Ona tiki was a big help... Thanks




With the room lights off.

Far out Monkey! That green bulb really pushes it over the top. There's no green in the tapa to begin with, right? You have done well grasshopper...

Legend has it Ona's rigorous tutorial program begins with the snatching of the pebble from his hand and culminates when you can lift the giant scalding urn with your forearms...

Correct Hodad,

The tapa fabric has no green in it. Just the bulb. I messed around with yellow, blue, white, and red and the green seemed to yield the best effect.

Wow! That is very nice. I like the angle cuts on the top protruding bamboo. A subtle yet striking touch. Those words contradict each other don't they? Anyway, great job.
