Thanks for posting that! Great looking prop replica, and good to know about the custom lampshade possibilities.

Thanks to Absolute60's inspiration (and all those handy links) I crafted my own interpretation of the Joe vs. the Volcano hula lamp as a Christmas gift to The Wife. That's her favorite movie of all time. She liked the gift. I never could've done it without all the hard work folks like Absolute60 and Jintosh put into this on their own.

I made another lamp, but with a few more bells and whistles. This one plays music (has a speaker built into the LED bulb) and a bulb that creates a shimmer effect inside of the shade. I had to do a lot more custom work on this one, but this one does everything I had wanted to do in my original build.



Here's some video of it in action!

This is a great how-to thread. Thanks for the video.

I was just wondering whether those speaker lightbulbs would be an effective way to add ambiance to a tiki space. Maybe not music but bird sounds, rainfall, etc. What’s your overall impression of the speaker bulb?

I actually think the bulb would be perfect for that purpose.

The sound carries well from inside of the lampshade at low levels, and exotica music sounded great from it. While I was making the lamp, I had envisioned how nice it would be if it were placed on an unassuming coffee table, playing exotica in the background while the soft colored lights changed from the bulb - would be perfect for get-togethers if that were your theme.
