If it's not too much trouble, would you mind posting a picture of your bar? If it is nice as your lamps, you can get into the bar making biz.

Here's some lamps I just finished up for Primo Kimo's Kahiki Moon. I've sent 7 out to him so far (I'm looking forward to see his place all dialed in!). I also made another one of the drum shaped lamps for Ragin' Raratongan. If anyone else is interested in a swag lamp, let me know. I'd rather sell them to the good people of Tiki Central than on ebay. I have a yahoo photo gallery of all the lamps I've made, so if you'd like to see it I'll need your email address to "invite" you to view it (I can only share the pics through yahoo with an invite... kinda silly me thinks). ORRRR, try this link

Thanks!
Kahaka

Nice lights Kahaka. You should step up production and double your prices. They look very professional and are individually artistic at the same time. Send me the link. benzart@adelphia.net

Thanks for the compliments, Benzart and Tiki-Toa! I'd pump out more of these guys if I wasn't teaching summer school... I think I'll have to take next summer off completely! I sent you link via yahoo's email "invite."

Tiki-Toa... I sent you the email too. PM or email about what you had in mind for the raffle deal.

Getting a little off the topic, does anyone know anything about that print of the blue faced exotic woman sandwiched between those tapa drums? As of late I've been running in to references or similar pics (This is the third this week) of her and it's slowly working up to a fixation, any useful info would be welcome.

And back on the topic Kahaka quit your day job, I'm sure there a lot of bars across the country screaming for such lights.

naugatiki, if you use the search tool on Tiki Central you should be able to find tons of info on her from past posts, this piece has been talked about lots. Good luck

Just thought I share a picture of a lamp I took in Tahiti.

Kahaka, are these lamps swag lamps or table/accent lamps? What're you using to make the cloth hold that curved shape? They've got a nice shape & I like the way you matched the pattern at the seams.

I can vouch for the professionalism, style and quality of Kahaka's lamps - I've got a pair of 'em hanging in the Castaway Lounge.

I'm runnin' out of ceiling room, but I could probably use a few more - send me that link!

(Teaching summer school instead of creatin' beeeeyootiful lamps - what were you thinkin' K?)

These are actually swag lamps. Pretty much all the lamps I do are swag. I used strips of lexan(sp?) plastic bows to curve the wooden frame. The lexan is clear so the light shines through it. Thanks for the kind words!

Lexan makes sense, in fact that was the first thing that came to mind when I saw those curves. Nice work.

Found these bamboo vases at a yard sale and decided to turn them into lamps because I am not good with the gardening. This is a shot of my bedroom... just finished putting up the wall last week.
