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.

Thanks for getting back to me Skip. Your imagination and the execution of your projects is an inspiration for sure!! Thanks for posting a pic of the raw ingredients to the napkin holder! I will have to drag the Mrs. to some crafting stores... I do have one specific question, what do you use to achieve the high gloss and sealant on these? I have read allot of your posts and I see the spray on shelac is used allot. Anyhting else?? and THANK YOU for your help!!! I will get some pics next summer of my newly remodeled tiki bar... Jim

Thanks Jim,
I use amber shelac, It does not come in spray though. (The clear shelac does)
Every now and then I will spray a clear poly coat on it.
If you use this Shelac outside it will look like crap in
one year or less.
I would guess paint or an oil stain is best for out door use.
Will try to post more photos of the holder parts for you.
On your bar take it slow, Find a tiki here a light there.
Get stuff while on vacation so as to have a story of where you got said object.
Too many time people want an instant tiki bar and buy some in my mind stupid stuff.
I did this as well, Wait, take your time and get the good cool stuff.
But get what you like.
Don't just buy stuff to be buyin stuff, Unless it's one of my lights.
Here is the napkin holder I made long ago.

One more thing Jim,
After you are done at the craft store go to an Oriental grocery store
and get these.

Ha!
With all of the shameful self promoting ads I've made, I gotta say yes.
But as it is with all nutty artist types it can be hard to pin me down
somtimes.
I have no website,(Don't want to make a job of this)
Spring is the best time though, Thats when I start makin lights full force.
Pm me with ideas of what you want.

Cool, I could use a new light. Is it small? Can you post a pic?

Glad too see you're keeping busy.

I've been feeling really good lately, thanks. Just need to keep up my infusions every 8 weeks.

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

Here it is Jeff.
It's not done yet.
I call this a Skip float with a full cage.
Comes with rope weave hanger.
Going to try to make five lights a month till June.
This month I've made 9 lights and some chain so
when spring comes I should be able to crank out more.
Can't sell this one yet, I would say it's mid size.
Cy just posted some new pics of the sign he's making for me check em out!!

This sign is looking great!
