Hi All! Long time, no posting... But I do swing by to lurk, and still create tiki when the mood strikes!

For several years, I've had an idea kicking around to build a PNG Drum Lamp truer to form... So here it is... 3 ft tall, 9" diameter.

Crocodile Kundu Lamp

This is a beauty, and so much more amazing in person! THAT is a handcarved Croc!

Man, Oh Man, Eric that is one cool lamp!!
You always were a very creative guy.

Wanted to go to the opening of you and Lena's art show but....
Well you know, we will try to make it before it closes for sure.

Great to see you back on TC and Makin Tiki art!
Don't stop now.

Great concept and very nicely done. Is the red design cut out and illuminated from behind or painted on?

Thanks!

It's handcut out of the brown layer, and illuminated from behind.

Thanks Skip! Yeah.. I know. We'll catch up here soon.

Thanks all!!

And thanks for the kind linkage there, Skip!

Didn't mention previously, but the light color can be changed with its remote controlled LEDs... Draws a max of 20w at full intensity.

Here's a quick test to see a few possible color variations from over 16 choices and other functions- from the same 2 bulbs.

We were going to go but the Freaks come out at Night.

This light needs that old skool glow.
You lost me with the colors.
Just me, but then I don't even like to see Blowfish lights with
colored lights in them.
