My name is John AKA Tikiskip.
Living in Columbus, Ohio.
I make and sell tiki lights for bars.
Below is my logo By Sam Gambino.
Here are some of my past works.
Most are sold.
Going to number theses lights so that if you have a question about a
light or other you can just give a number.






My first light here has to be the "Skip float"
I call it this as it was my creation have never seen a light like it.
It comes in red and green even made a gold one once.
Green is hard to find.
This is the one lots of people want and I sell a lot of them.

Damn good stuff! You and Kahaka make the coolest lamps. What size are the float lamps?
Your rope tying is excellent.

Skip, I've been a fan of your lamps fo evva. Your love of detail, your aging techniques, the visible time spent on each piece make them the only lamps I would hang among my vintage ones. One day I am gonna get me one of those cork ones!

Thanks Bongofury man!
And Big Bro Wow! if I were to write down what I want
people to say about my lights, that would be it!
I showed Bill Sapp one of my lights once and he thought it
was from his restaurant the Kahiki!
And Polynesiac You and Tiki Diablo got me started
on these lights.
I would look at your floats and say i'm going to do that one day.
Was talking with Danny at Coon tiki bout rattan and he said just heat it and bend it.
So thanks all, very cool!!!

Although I do make most of my lights from the ground up sometimes I get lucky and find old parts
that help with that old look. (as seen below)
Because they ARE old, it's hard to get that patina.
And that is THE goal, to get them to look like the old lights.
The book of Tiki was the guide I used to
get ideas for lights.
Plus that book threw gas on the small flam that was tiki and kept it
going and getting bigger so I could sell lights!!
So Thanks Sven!!!!
