Hale O'he bar with "Finding Benno" fish tank...

Got a really cool Tiki Tea Lite fountain at Walgreens.

It's sitting on top of the bar on Mad Dog Mikes Man Skirt.

More pics tomorrow.

One look at this thread (and the others featuring Ben's work) and it becomes painfully clear that if I was a wealthy man I'd be sending Ben a plane ticket and pulling out the old air compressor instead of killing myself trying to get even close to one of his environments.
Now where is that lottery ticket...

Duke,

Thanks for the comps.

It's been real hard building this.

Easier to build for other people.

Mrs Boo will take some pics of the waterfall ( built in lava flow)

and we'll post em tomorrow.

Moohalo!

Ben, we need to get the shirt and the skirt together so that YOU can wear the complete outfit

The level of your work is incredible (again), can't wait to see more pix. I'm in Palm Springs every 3 months, one of these days I need to get an invite from Queen K to tour her place.

No way! I have the same tiki tea light fountain and also got it at Walgreens...waaay out in Maryland no less. Sadly I don't have an amazing tiki bar to place it upon (or ANY tiki bar for that matter, sniff, sniff). Very cool work, I am a big fan!

Killer work, Ben!

I love the "Finding Benno" fish tank... reminds me of that great feature you put on the Hukilau 2004 bar!

Looking forward to the new pics... and seeing it all in person in May!

Wow, Looks great!

Does "Hale O'he" mean "Watch Your Step" in Hawaiian?
