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...

Not big news here, But now is the time for all you tiki light makers to stock up on
light bulbs for your lights.
Harder to get these after Christmas.
Everybody's a light maker these days right?

AND dear Santa here is the bomb I asked for.

PS I think it's a drop tank but it will do...

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Wrong, everyone might think they're light makers, but in reality you and Woody/Kahaka are the only real light makers. I've seen a lot of other home made tiki lamps, but nothing that comes close to what the two of you are doing or have done.

That drop tank is cool looking, and nice collection of vintage Christmas lights!

Thank you Jamie.
But since you have sold a light or two I think this may make you a pro by definition.

You left out bongofury he is top on my list, there are many other light makers of
note that should get some praise as well.

Kinda burned out of the whole thing at this time.

The vintage Christmas lights are at an antique show here in town and not mine, but I do buy light bulbs there.

Well Trav at $850.00 it was out of my range, how much was that depth charge
you posted some time ago?
We need a bomb thread in beyond tiki.

The drop tank would make a cool lamp with a shade on top.

Have always loved bombs.
Bombs are tiki I think.

Got some lights in the works but needs to warm up so I can finish em.

Hey Skip. Ouch!!! $850 is a big chunk of change for a drop tank. The depth charge was $350 and that was to rich for my blood at the moment. I gave $250 for the Davy Crockett nuke but that was a wise investment. I feel your pain with the weather, we just came through a blizzard up here in Kzoo. Have a good weekend.

So you take in cash and can get it for around 300 or less.
That is one cool side table!!
You keep it for years and years then sell it for the same price or more.
I say get it.

We vote you as the author of the Bomb thread.

Man winter sucks, as I get older it really blows.
AND you got even more winter than we do as we have NO roof rake.
YES people need to rake snow off of the roof so it does not crush them!

I want to be crushed by sunshine.

Stay warm Trav.
