Made a new lamp this weekend. I saw some cool ones people were posting on here so I thought I would give it a shot. If any lamp experts see this I have a question.....I've seen some lamps that the bottom and top of the lamp are enclosed, how do you make it to access the light bulb? Also, what are peoples methods to do the bamboo circles at the bottom of the lamp? I went through about six sticks of it and the cuts weren't clean so it took forever to clean them up and then I just hot glued them.

Thanks,
Craig

If your cuts aren't clean enough get a blade with more teeth, specifically for "finish" work. I'm not sure what kind of saw you are using but that's my 2 bits.

Looking Keen btw!

I was bored so I took down a perfectly good hand rail to put up these 4 inch poles and then it went on from there. Looks like I just moved up to the middle floor!?!? Next is ceilings and more trim work when I get more materials.

you're like the energizer bunny, dude...just keep goin' and goin'!

Your basement (and know the start of the upstairs) looks real nice and "cozy" as you put it. If the pictures make it look this good, I can only imagine what it's like to be there!

I love the addition of the bamboo railing and the bathroom looks real classy. very well done!

TikiFreak - your place looks sweet man. I know what you mean about the rough bamboo cuts. I put masking tape around the pole before I cut it. This gives a clean cut but takes forever to peel the tape off. I know you can get special Japanese bamboo hand-saws, but that would also take forever. As you know, you need a ton of bamboo sections for these lamps. I'd like to hear what other people use to cut their bamboo cleanly/quickly.

I have been using a Hitachi Mitre saw 10" with a good quality fine tooth blade, I make slow cuts, seems to work great so far, just make sure you have a sharp blade.
