'Bout time you do something for yourself Ben.

I'm coming out for Oasis, and hanging in Newport afterwards.

I'll have to bring up a case of Bud after surfing and check out that new patio of yours.

Thanks again for the abalone... I've been having fun with it.

Nice pics... don't give any trade secrets away!

The deck burning photo reminds me of my hair stylist, who has tanning beds. She says there's an artist who rents tanning bed time, puts his wooden art pieces in the bed, and "ages" them 10 years in one session.

...updated pics..

corner.



Shower.



almost LAVA wall.



Trade Secrets...



I gave the day labor the weekend off.
He's busy now on some painting for the new cover of Tiki Magazine.

Like most Jobs, we've re-configured some stuff.

The new side area was going to be another bar but will now be the Grotto!

Gonna try to squeeze in an A-frame there too.

We have to live with the "White" window frames ( not much anyone can do with those) and the "White" eaves due
to the assoc.

Akkkkkk!!!!!!!!!

More pics soon.........

Nice work Booben!

Time for a beer!

Love the doorway with the carved trim. That is such a great look when mixed with light colored bamboo and thatch.

The shower is a great idea also... love the look.

Three more months and maybe I can get around to working on the backyard here... after the snow melts and the ground thaws...

Not sure if that spam was an honor or?

But, to have a giant Chinese Bamboo company seek out a lone,

white, american, Tropical Decor artist is kinda crazy!

A while back Mervins/Target' came knocking on my door for me to build a Bamboo frame for them. Everytime they came to see it's progress, 10-15 execs would be in tow. (my guess...with their hi-tech hidden spy cameras) The next summer they came out with that Target Bamboo Tiki Bar. Yes, it was cheap. And, it got recalled! Karma!?!?!

I will always create different things and never mass produde the same! I am NOT a SHEEP! BAaaa!!!

On another note...

Almost finished the Lava Shower.

Pics next weekend.
