Hi McSwanky! Nice to meet you (and welcome to TC)
I'm working on the bar right now and will post some new pics this weekend. My brother and I were recently brainstorming on the airplane fuselage corner and here's a rough sketch he did that illustrates what I've been planning.





Here is another rough sketch of an idea for an 'outrigger canoe' booth that my brother thought up (genius ). It is basically the bow of a canoe emanating from the wall (as the table) with two cushioned 'outriggers' (as the seats) on each side. Wouldn't it be cool to see a bunch of these on the wall around a tiki bar? Each with different mastheads?





More very soon.

Great ideas! Hope you can pull it off.
Will the oval mock plane window be a place for
some art?

Hi guys, here are some recent pics of the bar under construction. The front corner will be a lined and lit alcove for the hula girl masthead. The short pieces of board resting on top are there to show the 2 levels of the eventual bar top(s).

Will do Kahuna. How's your place coming along? From the look of the stuff you've pulled together for yours, we have similar taste in 'cool junk'.
The theme of my room is a 1940's-50's bar on a Hawaiian island decorated with a bunch of Hawaiiana and vintage WWII stuff (as though it lived through the war) with more than a little of the Disneyland Enchanted Tiki Room thrown in too. I'm thinking of it as our imaginary Hawaii 'simulator'.
I want to be able to close the doors to the basement and have it look, feel, sound and smell like a tropical tiki paradise (we even found these little 'flower oil' atomizers that rest on the light bulb of a lamp and give off a scent that makes the air smell exactly like Hawaiiain air).

Wow, Pupu. This place is going to top most functioning tiki bars that are open to the public out there. I think the next venture should be a neighborhood bar in your area? When does it open? Ha!

Can't wait to see that bar finished.
Looking great so far! Love the hula girl in the corner.

Here's a little progress on the frame for the airplane wreckage seating in the corner.
(First the general rough sketch concept again):

Mr Pupu Pants

First I've really enjoyed this thread following your progress:

1. Assume you have a design background based upon your creativity?

2. Do you have an anticipated complete date when your finished and
ready for whatever your ready for?

3. Like the airplane idea, are you planning animation thru the planes
porthole window & what do you plan on using for the two seats?

Keep up the COOL work Thortiki

*Mr PuPu Pants, please report to the psychiatric ward for evaluation*

Great ideas! Could you put a small flatscreen TV in the porthole and show appropriate video footage? (You'd have to fly to Hawaii so you could film out the airplane window )

Thanks very much Thortiki.
1. My work history is in film and video production and I've built a fair number of sets along the way -- so I've just applied some of the construction techniques I picked up from doing that. Some of this has also been learning as I go.
Growing up, my brother and I always had some art project under way--drawing, sculpting, painting, model building, fiddling wih electronics, etc. (he has gone on to being a director at Dreamworks). This project has been such a blast because it has combined all those things.

2. I'm hoping to be 'finished' with Hula Sue's by the end of the summer. The purpose of the room is just as a place to have family and friends over for alittle 'escape' and quality time together. Our house is slowly becoming our own personal theme park (themed rooms throughout) and once the basement is done, I'll be moving on to finish the space-themed theater room (with 'Mission to Mars' spacesuit, 'Sunshine' film-used spaceship setpieces and some Disneyland park-used Tommorrowland props), the vintage cowboy/cabin-themed den (with rounded pine walls, fake fireplace, etc.) and an outdoor deck, themed as an old dock on a tropical island (with building facades and a row boat docked alongside as a seating area). Lots of fun work to do

3. The airplane window will have a flat screen TV that will loop a DVD of footage I took of the view on our favorite beach (Tunnels) on Kauai.
I was talking with my excellent friend, Dave Spafford, and he had the genius idea of cutting together a reel of movie scenes with a similar aerial window view -- (Superman saving Air Force One by lifting the wing in Superman the Movie, the Gremlin pulling wires out of the engine in the Twilight Zone and the homage shot in Madagascar 2 (directed by my brother), Wicked witch flying by the window in the Tornado from Wizard of Oz, etc.). Would be a fun alternate.

MadDogMike, you may be right about the need for a psychiatric evaluation
You guessed it on the plan for that porthole window (per above).

Here are the seats I plan to use on the airplane section (I'm also be adding seatbelts and making head-liners that will have the United Airlines logo on them.

Wow, that is some great work. I can't wait to see how the whole thing turns out.
Also, a sign of watching too much Mythbusters, I thought you had some connections to the airplane scrap yard and was going to bring in an actual section of the airplane. I can't wait to see that portion develop though.
