Hey skipper,
Loving the flashback thread. It's cool that you posted the hat and basket. I'll add it to my list of "to-do" tiki projects. There are a few of us out here that eat the "instructional" information up...great posts.

Hope summer is fun for you. It's been a real daze here...just flying by. Cutting into my production as well. Just gotta enjoy it while it's here.

Always fun reading your posts.

So I have clearly been a lurker a long time...I came across these things at a place called World market. They are use to cover dinner plates I guess...Link >

I bought 2 of each of the coconut and bamboo.(the bamboo one is not showing but I got 3 at my store today) They are marked 75% off right now...The coconut one is way cool and has a light metal frame inside. They also had some way cool round lantern that match it to make a bottom it was 75% off too...

I also saw these I'm sure it's not a big deal you but I thought it was brilliant...The price is stupid but the idea is priceless I think?

Hope I'm not braking any rules...And Skip Thank you for the inspiration your awesome!

Those could work.
And the price is good, well the cord thing is high but still cool.

The trick is not to let people go "oh I see that is a Mayonnaise jar"
Had a guy do that once, not good.

But it needs to look like it was supposed to be a light, not hold Mayonnaise.

An old bottle or jar that has interest because of it's age may work just stay away from the
Miracle Whip containers.

If you are going to use Flotsam and Jetsam on your light make sure it is cool Flotsam and Jetsam.

Good luck, post pics of what you make.
