This is my first attempt at making a float lamp, and I'm not sure how to finish off the netting at the top. The netting is sisal rope around a glass gazing ball. The picture below shows the stage where I'm stuck (although I did go back and tighten up/ even up the knots so they aren't quite as loose and sloppy as they look in the picture.) Can someone tell me how to tie up the top so that I can hang it properly? Thanks!

I just keep going till you get a 4 inch top tail.
Then put your light cord down the center.
Now take some extra twine and lash the top part
round and round to form a loop.

i hope everyone had a happy holiday season, now that things have settled down a little bit it is time to continue to make a float lamp so i bought a fairly large float and am wondering if anyone knows any place in orange county that will cut a hole in it for me !?

thanks

So Fugu did you finish that lamp?
Lets see it.
And on the hole thing I have tried and could not do it.
You could try a stain glass shop.
Or a place where they do monuments for graves.
Both of these places have hole cutters for glass.
It won't be cheap.
Or guaranteed!
