My virgin tiki creation made possible by help from tiki lamp makers of TC. Also included some pics of my living room.

Nice Zephyr! Looks like it's spent the last 50 years in a smokey bar

Thank you for the kind words everyone. I'll soak it up now since it'll be while before I start a new one. Most of this lamp was completed in my second bathroom- I have two curious little ones. I chose this design because I thought it would be easy given my limited skills. I guess it turned out ok.

That looks great! Did you use an antique hat for the top?

No antique hat just a jumbo size asian hat. Yeah it was fun Kahaka. I expect to make more lamps as time and money allow.

They are fun! I made one last year as well; super heavy though, with all the shells..

I can hang this if I figure how to attach the top to the bottom.

Can you "stitch" the top to the bottom with a rafia cord or maybe even use some thin floral wire where it is thickest so it won't show? Just a couple thoughts. I have never made a lamp so not sure if that is proper or not.
