Ok.....

We have 12 participants and all of the lamp kits are READY for you....

If you have any of the following items please bring them as I dont have enough for everyone and it will slow us down if you need to share too much.

if you dont have them its ok....

-small hammer
-glue gun
-strong scissors


We will start PROMPTLY at 10am because I dont know how long it will take us to get finished... I dont want anyone going home with a half done or half dry lamp.

BE ready for Memorial Day Traffic Southbound on the I-5 through Camp Pendleton and Oceanside.

Im off to go get food and drinks.......

Anyone have any recomendations for tiki bars in the area?

Looking to go out tonight with a few friends for drinks!

Man, what a great time. It was really fun to work along the other lamp builders. They all looked so awesome.
Thanks again Derek for putting this together and allowing us in your home. I can't believe that I actually built such an amazing lamp! Here's a few quick pics of it hanging in my patio. It really brings the room together.

I had a great time and met some great people! And now I have a beautiful lamp! Here's me and Monkeyman with the lamp:

I'll try to get another picture of it hung up once I get it up.

Wow! What a great time!
Thanks Derek for an excellent day.
Derek is on helluva creative guy and has a real talent for imparting that creative knowledge to others.
It was fun meeting everyone.
Sorry I had to run early but I just made the wedding.
Funny, through the whole thing I was picking Mod Podge off my hands and itching to head out to the parking lot and finish my lamp drying in the trunk!
Can't beat a lamp that glows with a warm light and a warm feeling of new friends, great memories and personal satisfaction.

Here are a few pics of the day and my lamp all finished.









Dry time and time for lunch and drinks!
Derek is not only a great instructor he is also an excellent host.





The Monkeyman class of 2007!


Here's my Monkeyman Lamp in its new home.

Looks like a good time was had by all!

Could someone put names to the faces in that group shot?

That's fantastic! Nice job everyone!

Hey Monk, if you have any parts left over I would be very interested in purchasing a lamp 'kit' from you, maybe it could be shipped along with my frame whenever it's done? That would be super swell!

Cheers!

Hello all, here’s some pictures from the big Monkey Man lamp making extravaganza, for those that missed out it was great, we learned quite a lot.
I would have posted sooner but it took us a while to find the lamp a place of honor in the Kapu Tiki Room ceiling, look greats though







Just starting on the lamps







Here’s a group shot, Derek is very hard to photograph as he doesn’t stand still for very long.







The bottles on the table had something to do with the lamp construction.







Derek working the lamp like a pro








Home up in the ceiling, I changed out the white light to a green; it’s the green tapa lamp just behind the green light.





My very best Alohas

Bosko
