Mahalo Chris and VampiressRN!

started working on three pendant lamps for over the bar. Went to this super cool local shop
http://www.facebook.com/generalsalvageltd?ref=ts&fref=ts
and picked up some rope and pulleys.



Cut the bottom off the Kraken bottles, two worked one didnt (cracked) but I have a spare. Socket and hardware fit perfectly.



Last night I painted the inside of one of the bottles with flat black Krylon paint. Seems to be sticking pretty good.



next steps are to wrap some rope around the neck and figure out how to attach the bottle to the pulley (knots hooks or?)
I might also make a fimo octopus to wrap around the middle lamp, not sure tho...

Anyways, Ill post more pics when Im done.

thanks for peeking in!
Darren

Love the idea of the pendant lamps, too cool!
It's fun to cut those Kraken Bottle butts off isn't it? I take the bottoms off to make my Beachcomber Lamps.

Sweet lamp!
How do you cut yours?
I tried the burning yarn and ice water thing, and that didn't work too well...ended up scoring with a glass cutter then using my propane torch to GENTLY heat it then dunked it in ice water. Those bottle sure have an inconsistent thickness....But they just scream I WANNA BE A LAMP!

Thanks,
I score, heat and dunk like you did... It usually works.
If the bottoms were not so thick it would be really easy but you're right they are perfect for lamps and it's worth it.

ok party is over, back to work..

I need to finish those Kraken lamps.
Ive also been thinking about making some end tables for either side of my rattan sofa.

This is what Ive come up with.



rough dimensions 3.5'L 2.5'H 16"W
should be fairly cheap and easy to build.

Darren,

Finally got a chance to read through this thread. WOW! You have done an amazing job on everything. Your router skills are superb and you have a great eye for design. The place is looking great. Love what you did for the railing and the pendant lights.

Can't wait to see what else you put together.

Dale
