Wow Anders, very nice job and nice vision spotting that and making it into a awesome lamp.

It's been a long time...so I thought I'd better get to posting some newer lamps I made up for the Tiki the last few years. All were born out of my love for the Tiki Ti and the people who frequent it.

I also need to say, that to me, Kahaka's lamps are the gold standard. If anyone ever needs to get motivated to create in the lamp realm, just look at Woody's work here on TC. I do and I'm always amazed and inspired by what I see. There's lots of others of you out there that I've drawn from too, know that you're all artist's in my eyes...

I made up a light string which can be read from either side depending on your perspective in the bar. Using a Roto Zip was a bamboo dust flying adventure.









Did a couple lanterns for each of the two corner tables just inside the door, it was a lot of fun working with resin for the first time.









Just after the Tiki's 55th anniversary last year, I finished one with a nice glow using a piece of vintage Samoan tapa...really like working with old tapa.



Currently working on another one for the Tiki and will post it then it's finished. I've completed several others and plan on posting some in Creating Tiki soon.

Thanks for looking!

Wow, more incredible work, A-frame! I need to get back to the Ti and here's just a few more reasons to go!

Cheers to you and your great work!

Great work, I haven't been to Tiki Ti in a while, looking forward to checking these lights out when I am there next.

Just finished this one for the Tiki Ti and hung it last Saturday. Used some very old Fijian Tapa with a lot of black and dark brown in it. Hard to get the camera and/or operator to show the true red color of the resin...the first photo is pretty close. Really like how this one turned out.







Thanks for looking!

Love this! Any chance you are willing to make another for me?

I was fortunate that A-Frame brought this amazing piece to The original Tiki Marketplace in Garden Grove yesterday. The following pix show it in itís temporary location-the plan is to permanently locate it in our dining room. This lamp is big. Hope I didnít steal your thunder Anders but I could not contain myself. We are so proud to own this particulr lamp.
