woah, great lamp!
My only consolation for missing this thread is that I was in Hawaii at the time.
I think it's time to crack my pisco bottle!

Awesome lamp man. I wanna go raid the grog stores right now and start drinking. Actually, that might not be your lamp speaking, but my alcoholic tendencies...

Very cool

HA! I made one of these, earlier this year. I found one of those bottles at Hi Time and just couldn't resist. I was going to buy some good rum, but just had to get the moai bottle.
I made a lamp out of mine, too, but didn't paint it. That's a really good idea.
I've noticed a few people on TC have used sand or gravel to weigh down lamps made out of bottles, since they tend to be top heavy.
Has anyone out there tried using something like stone slabs or something to create a wider base?
After I made my lamp, I saw a lamp at House of Tiki in Newport Beach made out of a Pisco bottle, too, but the fellow that made that one had used some kind of fake lava rock to make a fairly cool base. It had that resin feel like black CocoJoe's stuff does. Does anyone know about that, or how to make stuff like that?

Great Job MM! I need to make one.
Your link doesn't work for that bottle. Do you know the brand of liquor
?

It's called Pisco Capel. I think you can get it from Hi Time at this link http://www.hitimewine.net/istar.asp?a=6&id=162500&csurl=/iStar.asp?a%3D29
I'm not 100% sure that it's the right one since there's no picture, but it was about a $30 bottle. If the link goes bad, just check www.hitimewine.net and search for "pisco"

Can anyone tell me how to drill a hole in a glass bottle without cracking it? What kind of drill bit do I need? Thanks for any advice in advance, I want to make a rum bottle lamp.
