Today's bit of work on TDK

Today I took a pair of 4" redwood deck rail ball finials in to work, bored them throught the center and the parted the spheres off of the bases.

Tonight when I got home, I glued the parasols to the bamboo spacers, cut and drilled the Tiki torch and then assembled the gun.

I'm pretty pleased with the results.
