Skip, just wondering where do you get the rope that you use for the netting?

Well there is not a true answer for that one.
My wife and I go to antique shows, flea markets, estate sales, garage sales.
Man the list goes on and on.
But here's the deal, you look and look and find stuff that will work as tiki bar dιcor
and keep buying and saving each piece till you have a light.

Not much of what I use comes from a store I can say. Go here.
Maybe Franks Cane and Rush.

You can get rope anywhere really.
BUT what you want to do is find it old, and cheap, plus LOTS of it.
Now that can be hard to do.
The amount of rope needed to tie a large float is a lot of rope.
Costs on that if you buy rope at the store would be more than I sell the whole light for most times.
I think Lena said she paid almost $70.00 bucks for the rope to tie her last float with some
left over and heck the globe was $70.00 as well.
But the globe was from the Kahiki.

So you go look for rope but find cork.
Try to find cork but get a rattan hat, that's how you do it.

If I did nothing but made lights 10 hours a day for years I don't think I could use up all the crap
I have stored away.

Got some rope here for $60.00 bucks three spools.
But I got it all.

That Edco place sells old, I mean OLD tools and crap.
I think most of the stuff was priced long ago and they are too lazy to go
through and redo the prices.
It used to be an old Dan Dees potato chip factory.

I NEVER thought I would get anything for doing lights.
So ya find it where you find it.

Ok here is what I did with one of those Tapa shades.
It's not a light.

Tikiskip Tiki island Smoker....






Going to replace the side and front tables with Original Kahiki Koa wood from the dining room tables
of the Kahiki.

Also you can see how only one of the handles has the wrap on both ends. (Smoke box right side)
Going to do the other one, just wanted to show how it looked with and without the bamboo
skin wrapping.

Then this will be ready for a centerfold in Smoker Tiki porn mag.

Aloha TikiSkip! I have that ottoman in my bathroom! My husband wants to make a light from it, and I am steadfastly refusing to let it go!
