I didn't get much of a chance to work on my own work last night, as I spent the night making a branding iron for my wahine's brother's girlfriend's roller derby team. Their annual awards are this weekend, and she knew about my rum branding iron, so she asked me to make one of the awards. The award: Grade A Fresh Meat, for the best new player. The roller derby is pretty big around these here parts, with three league's within an hour and a half of Pittsburgh, with two of the leagues being televised by the regional cable company. I even performed at a bout in the fall, as part of a special event, that they said was too much for cable. That's right, Lucky the Painproof Man, too gross for cable.

Anyway, without further ado, here is the non-function (at her request) branding iron:

It's a t-bone steak, with the letter A, gold hammertone finish.

Now, back to your regularly scheduled tiki:
I got a few things tiki related done. I finished the RUM branding iron, though with all the other mayhem, I forgot to take photos of the results in non-laminated wood. I'm very happy with the results, and so I finished off the iron with a coating that will resist temperature up to 2000F, though I don't know yet if the coating will stay on the part that actually contact the wood. We'll have to see. I'll have to get a photo of that next week. For now, here is the finished RUM branding iron:

I got one of my molds poured for the chunk lamp. I'm super excited, and I can't wait to show some progress here. I've also started work on my rum crate lamp, which is the whole reason I did the branding iron. I got the idea from Tiki Diablo and have wanted one for my home bar since I saw it. More on that next week as well. For now, may your rum bottle always be filled!
