Have been working on the float lamps in between the storms in my backyard.The air quality and temp
have been perfect for spraying the inside of the glass .


The yellow glass seems thicker then the other colors .Have not had any of the yellow break so far ...knock on wood !




Yellow and red before frosted inside The green has been frosted and ready to be re-netted .

I helped design a long time friends back yard in College Park(Costa Mesa ) and we are
getting to the exterior finishing touches.I am installing four glass float lamps side by
side running the length of a sixty foot length fence.The four lamps will be tied
into an existing Malibu system which turn float lamps on at dusk and off at 2:00am thru a
sensor and timer .The same Malibu system -lights up the palm trees ,plants and outside
tiki statues.This is a low voltage lighting system , so I had to use standard socket 12V,
15 watt appliance size light bulbs .I will be finishing the job over this weekend ,and
will follow up with some great looking pics .@ Maui chimes.. .the colors available are:
Purple,Green,cobalt blue, light sky blue,turquoise,yellow and red .

Tough to really get the shots the way I want them , so these will do until I can come
back and replace them with better pics.




Vertically mounted bamboo poles facia about 50 feet in length ,four mounted glass float lamps behind
the barbecue and jacuzzi area


Night shots



I used porcelin sockets and brass hardware for the float fixtures to withstand the outdoor elements
and weather






Outdoor fireplace piped in the gas and installed tempered broken glass which disperses
more heat

carvings .Who ever carved did a nice job though.WestAdad ...thanks so much .

I am now making all my own fixtures and not having them outsourced .It involves alot
of work which includes hand spray painting eight separate parts that make up the fixture.
It takes 15 separate parts just to make one fixture.I am using all UL approved parts
including wiring , sockets , plugs etc .Before hanging one of these in your tiki room,
tiki hut or bar , take a look and pay attention to the meticulous detail I have gone thru
to put these together the right way, so not only do they look good ....they will last you
a long long time !

Hey, Bill! You should move the pics of your place into the Home Bar thread & show us more. I love that Hamm's sign.
