Hi Guys, sorry it's been so long. I'll post again very soon as I'm on roll right now
Here's a look at some progress on the bar. In the first couple of pictures you can also see a strip of metal that I was riveting to apply to the outer edge of the airplane section (it'll be distressed to look as though the plane was torn apart in a crash landing).





The front corner of the bar will be rounded and the upper level ('customer' side) of the bar top will have portholes every 1.5 ft. that are flush to the surface. You'll be able to look down into them to see lit display cases that have Hawaiian travel memorabilia.
The front edge of the bar will probably be wide bamboo with the customary rope light hidden behind it to create a nice glow.



A background behind the hula girl masthead will be painted to resemble shades of blue water with a lighting effect that looks like rising bubbles. The foot rail will be bamboo supported by carved struts.





I'll post some updated pictures of the booth and the airplane section later this week. Thanks for all the encouragement!!!
John

Thank you, thank you, thank you !!! Welcome back Mr. Pupu. The bar looks fantastic and can't wait to see the airplane section. That lighting effect behind the figurehead in the bar sounds killer. Inspiring work as always and I am looking forward to more posts. Thanks again.

That is so inspirational. Amazing vision. I'm loving it.
And your bar structure certainly gave me some ideas for mine.

Thank you both very much!!!
Kon, just saw your bar thread --awesome, awesome job. Such great atmosphere.
The name of your bar made me think of an alternate name for mine (considering the travel theme and airplane seating):
'The Lei Over'.
Not sure what Hula Sue would think about that, however

WHOOHOOO!!! More Hideaway pix!

Looking great John. Did you find the riveted metal piece or did you have to drill and set all those rivets yourself? The portholes is a cool idea, keep us posted.

Hi Mike!
For the airplane 'skin', I actually bought some rolled aluminum flashing and drilled and riveted it myself. I'm going to add a hint of some airline paint stripes to it as well --- although I don't think they'll be all that noticable once it is distressed and 'shredded' (but I'll notice them)

On another note---this is a good time for me to toot your horn as a generous and creative tiki friend.

In an earlier post, I had mentioned that I was planning to have a video monitor running aerial footage within the porthole window of the airplane seating area. Well, Mike took it upon himself to create an awesome set of 'aerial' clips by building a miniature airplane wing (complete with Hula Sue moniker and engine), shooting it as a 'window P.O.V.' and adding sound effects and captain.s announcements. Over the course of several weeks , I received several DVDs of 'flight' footage (daytime, sunset and night time with clouds) in the mail. How's that for tiki community spirit and generosity? Mike, I know you did it for fun but it was also very kind and meant alot. Thank you again, kind Sir!!!

Oop, had to edit and add one thing -- Thank you Amy! I'm sure enjoying watching what you're doing with your new treehouse 'village'. It is beyond cool

YES!!!! I've been waiting and watching and waiting and watching some more, and now it's finally here, the update!! Thank you!! Looking great as it has since the start, thanks for sharing with us all again. I love the portholes in the bar idea, and the airliner area as well, great ideas...Any progress on the 3D relief map?
