Nice lamp! I just finished making two glass fishing floats into lamps this evening ( my first lamps), neither one broke and I used an ultra primitive technique so I guess I'll go play the lotto now.

Nice work, are you going to use electrical molding to run across the wall and ceiling? (to hide the cord)
p.s. you need to clean the blood from the spear in the corner.

Damn, nice rocket in the background!

I have not done HPR in years, the fields seem to be sparce in Florida...at least anywhere near Tampa.
Nice to see other TC'ers with similar non-tiki interests, lol.

Nice lamp too

sneaky, how did you make lamps from the glass floats? I have tried looking for glass bits for drilling, but they are too small...

pdrake...Level 3...wow! Now that is impressive. I mainly fly R/C planes now...rocketry got a bit too expensive. Last time I checked, the K reloads were about $60 and Aerotech was still rebuilding from the fire. Are the prices still way high?
