I just can't thank you guys enough for all the kind words and encouragement. I have to admit, it makes it even more fun as I work on it and look forward to sharing stuff with you all. I've certainly received my share of inspiration and ideas from all of you.

I'll post updates on the crashed airplane 'lei-over' seating area within the week.

Thanks again, you guys are awesome.

Mr Pupu your room looks great!
Thanks for the pic's
It's fun to watch you progress.
I was looking up ww2 radio on ebay
was looking for music but got more
radios of the time.
These radios looked like something needed
in your bar.( You know the "may day may day we are going down" type)
I don't think they sold too high.
Check it out, they are fun to see anyway.
Good luck! keep the photos coming!!!

Ben, with two words, you made my month. Thanks

Tikiskip, we're on the exact same wavelength (pun intended)

Amy, you are awesome and you (and Ben et, al) have created your very own Magic Kingdom. So incredibly cool. You are livin' the dream, baby!

Kahuna, I can't quit you (in a manly sort of way).

Trader Bob, Ka'lenatiki (is that your Kryptonian name?) -- thanks very much for the nice words. The pattern on the wall at the entrance is actual glued Tapa cloth I bought from a nice gentleman in Hawaii. It would be pretty easy to recreate on your own with brush and sponge.

Mike, Matt, Jason, Paul, Tikiville, Unga Bunga -- thank YOU for the very kind motivation.

Sorry, I meant to post again much sooner but I've been pretty swamped on some videos for work. I'll post updates very soon (I'm working in the basement all weekend).
Thanks again,
John

Amazing - that topographic map is so cool. I can't wait to see the finished product. SOOOO much time and effort! Do these excellent ideas just pop into your head or do you research your butt off? I just sit here with my mouth agape looking at the details! I do love the airplane section too - really clever. Hey, how come we've never met - we're practically neighbors! I'm glad you came back to us - I really missed these updates.

Hi Beadtiki, sheesh, we are neighbors! I hope I get a chance to meet you.
The time and effort is a big part of the fun and I figure, when it's done, I'll have learned alot as well.
I just try to put my own twist on the stuff that has inspired me (much of it here on Tiki Central -- so much talent and encouragement on this site).

As a general rule of thumb, what has helped me draw everything together is creating a sort of 'backstory' for the bar in order to stick with a theme of design and content.

I figured, if I was going to do it, I might as well go all out (which is the only mode I know -- for better or worse).
I picked a 'decade' (1945-1955ish) and a 'location' (favorite beach on Kauai) and a 'purpose' (floatplane airport beach bar) and other 'influences' (Disney, WW2, Nautical, Hawaii Vacation Travel) and collected and designed stuff around that. It has helped me keep style, color and materials together (and then I break the 'rules' from there).

It definitely makes an overall difference when the layers of details look like they were 'created' with similar type materials and techniques. Helps create a 'reality'. I don't mean for this to sound all overblown...blah, blah, blah -- just the only way I can think to describe what I was thinking.

Hey Bongo, I look around this site with my jaw lowered all the time. I just try to remember that we're each in a league of our own (based on space and resources) ....and there's no crying in Tiki
Also -- I can't tell you the number of mistakes I've made that turned into....uh.....'works of art'. Thanks very much for the very kind words.
John

I must admit I too have the PuPu flu. This is one of my all time favorite posts on TC. The idea of a back story is classic and you should have a bar menu with the story written on it somewhere. I was wondering if your idea for the outrigger seating area is still a go? And as always you are doing a fantastic job.

Eagerly awaiting new pics. I've begun to plan the Mauna Kai Lounge a little better & should have progress of my own to report, soon. I sure could use some more ideas to steal!
PS: Hey, Trav! You're creepin' up on 1000 posts. We'll have to have a virtual shindig!

You should contact Sophista-Tiki for a personalized menu - have you seen the pop-up menu she did for the swap? Really fun. Thanks for sharing with us all - it is a bit addictive!

This is my first post on TC. I've been following for a long time now. I have seen some amazing things on this site by some amazing people but this thread has to be one of the best of TC. REALLY incredible to see the awesome ideas take shape. It's always fun to see someone into this stuff show a thread of their project but this one is just so damn awesome! Mr. Pupu, You are such a brilliant creator and you do a really top notch job carrying out these awesome ideas. I think you have constantly raised the bar on this project to a far more imaginative and custom room than any of us thought it would originally be. Really inspiring to me to see this thread. Please continue to post photos- over post send us tons of photos from your awesome world! Really killer stuff!

I second that, this thread is one of the main reasons to come to Tiki Central! The stuff you've done fires me up for the day I finally have a space to build a tiki bar of my own. And the backstory idea was really nice.
