Hey Swanky
I just noticed all the "Tikis" are looking at Becky the hula girl!


Except "Creepy" at the bar entrance and he has got his own agenda.

Your bar is very beautiful and classy looking. I like the paint colors you chose for the walls. At one point it looks like kitty wants to give some design ideas. Looks like you listened.

Great space Swanky... definitely one of the bars on TC that motivated me to do a home bar. Looking forward to your updates (not that the place needs any!).

Great looking space. I love the size of the bar. Looks like a professional setup more than a home bar. Nice work!

Been a long winter with few updates. Entertaining some...

Note giant puffer in top left.

And new Japanese ships lamp in the center


New shell lamp behind the bar makes the PNG pieces better lighted as well as the work area


This pic you can see Ms Swanky's bamboo piece under the TV

I plan to do some major work in the coming month or so. Just little things here and there.

Sort of hard to get a pic of this. It's a "rum barrel" that has a cut out to make it a display. Light inside. Just got it re-connected and put some Hukilau stuff in there for the short term. Still needs a dimmer and to figure out a better bunch of stuff for in it...

I got him about 6-8 years ago from an anthropologist and collector in Indiana. Still can't believe it fit in the station wagon and I and a 14 year old boy loaded it...

Just looked at the progress from front to back and now I need to take a nap...I'm exhausted. Wow...that was a truckload of work. I want to know what goes in that little space under the floor...does the door still open from the outside...is it a bomb shelter now.

In theory, everything on the left can be moved, the flooring rolled up, the subfloor and joists taken out and then you can moved big things in and out of the basement.

There is a bamboo couch down there that we'd like to move up to the bar, but it may not fit up the inside stairs. And if the washer or dryer dies... Dunno...
