Ya Hang10 I made that guy for my restaurant years ago.
Want to make a tiki disco ball.

Here is my first light of 2013.
I was inspired by Sevn Kirstens Book of Tiki and Miguel Covarrubias art in said book.
Had a globe that had these dots that needed to be coverd up.
So here it is the Covarrubias globe light.
Much more to come this year.
Tiki pickings have been good just waiting to get outside
and build.
Going to be some cool new stuff.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Great minds think alike, Skip! Your netting blows mine away, though!

Ha! ATP I was a long hair rocker when I was young then went to punk bars in the 80s.
But my rocker friends and I took our fake IDs to a disco one night, There we were with all our greasy
long hair.
But the ladies there were hot! they had those skin tight silk dresses on, made us forget about
Lita Ford.
Sooo.. we sent these three girls drinks the waitress set down the drinks at the girls table
and right after that the three girls got up and walked away.
Dam we felt stupid.
But not too stupid to go over with our tails between our legs and drink those drinks.
Then we left and went to the Rock and Roll Palace.
Good times.
But.. just think if tiki went disco maybe those down years in the 70s and 80s would have shown
us white and chrome tiki, huge disco tiki temples.
This ones for you ATP...

Can't pass this one up.

I miss you Crazy Mamas!!!!




Dam Big Kahuna you beat me to it.
Yeah I tied that globe myself.
Also found that a 15 watt amber bulb made the globe look
older and had a softer glow.
But you need to change the bulb from the bottom as the hole in the top is too small.

The amber bulb is a good idea. How, on Earth, do you manage to get those knots so uniform?

At this time I think I have tied over 50 floats.
As you tie more and more you get faster and more
uniform.
So I guess practice makes perfect.
I do have a method of tyeing these floats that makes it easier to make them even.
And try the amber bulb I think you will like it.

Thanks jimbo020,
That is one of those things I make that everybody wants.
Heck I don't even have one.
Made only one and Hakalugi has it.
Did start to make another like a year and a half ago.
don't know if I can make one again.
Here's a pic of the one I started.
But these take so long don't think I will sell these again.
Wish I had never sold the first one.
Thanks for asking.
You got a great start on your bar there.

That is a hell of a caddy, Skip.

I just saw your signature up above, about the floats. Priceless, man.
