Unbelievable, and as Lake Surfer said, epic! It's got what you'd want in a killer tiki bar, and it's right in your own home! It's not hard to believe that it is only going to look better. Wow.

Just went through your thread from start to finish and I'm just flabbergasted. Not only is the work amazing, but so is all the thoughtfulness behind it.

Progress is stunning. I too love the relief map above the booth...

Thanks for posting.

Mr. Pupu Pants,
I am fairly new to TC, a lurker for the past year. I just read your entire thread and sir, I must say, I am overwhelmed by your creativeness and you craftsmanship. You certainly have inspired me to get back to work on my humble bar. Amazing, just amazing.

Absolutely phenominal work, John. A thing of beauty! Your 3-8-2010 post with the array of progress pics was cool to swing through. You've surely put a helluva lot of thoughtful work into it. Bravo!

Cheers~
Andy

Its looking nice. I like the outward leaning of the bar, and the map on the wall is really a cool idea! Did you ever make the animatronic tiki with the Christmas tree eyes and mouth?

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more awesome – it just got more awesome! And it sounds like it’s going to get even more awesomer.

I had to go through the whole thread again just to make sure that this wasn’t a product of a particularly vivid mai-tai induced fever-dream.

Truly inspirational!

Thank you all so much. You guys are way, way too nice -- but I do really appreciate it
Makes me want to work around the clock!

I'll have some more progress pics in the next day or so.

Here are some makings for a lamp I'm experimenting with (making two of them) using parts from a couple of those old motion lamps (these ones had fish that 'swam' around as the inner 'shade' rotated via bulb heat-powered metal fins on top).

When mounted inside the float and combined with another inner shade I'm making and some sand and sea plants, it will look like the fish are swimming around inside the float.



Back in a couple days
John

Can't wait to see it, John... you've definitely got the Midas touch. Looking at your work keeps me motivated. This stuff is fun, but it ain't always easy!

First view of your room and I'm awe struck. I'll be back over and over again to see what's up next. Wow, Wendy
