Thank you Cy and hiltiki.
Here is the small stand of bamboo that I made this hat from.
This light at the last hour gave me trouble, the bulb was too close to the bottom
of the light so a few small tricks were needed to fix this problem.
I love the basket light for tiki bars and you don't see many in home bars these days.
Going to put this one on eBay some day soon...

One side note the basket is lined with varnished cambric, this cloth is hard to work
with but gives a nice glow.
This is why I added the rattan ribs on the side as to keep the cloth in place.
Plus this material will not rot/tear like paper can.
But then this is part of the reason I shellac my lights for these lights are mostly paper and rattan or bamboo and all of those things rot or even mold.
I used to use this stuff during my days on the High Voltage crew at OSU.

Electrically insulating varnished cambric...
This material is permanently -flexible, is highly resistant to oil, moisture and aging and has a high dielectric strength and a high tear strength. v

This is what I mean when I say cluster of lights or floats.
The mid one is the 15 inch long by 5 inch wide one you asked about...
