Hey Jim!

looks like you're off to a great start!

Like TIkiG said, just give a shout if you need somebody to pitch in a hand, I'm ready, willing and able!

Maybe even a weekend afternoon of tikifying transformation... I'm sure your legion of Tikiyaki fans would jump at the chance to help out such a worthy cause! (just promise them lots of Jungle Jetsetter Cocktails as their reward for a hard day's work!)




Count me in!

Todays project was to build a nice gate to cover the chain link one.

As per my other post
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=35676&forum=20&11...I was looking for Pecky cedar....and, well...it's IMPOSSIBLE to find in SoCal....and I do mean IMPOSSIBLE. I really wanted to do something other than the typical split bamboo rounds for a gate. I wanted to make the entry really special.

I sent out a few emails to some Tiki folks I know, and Luckily, Bosko came to the rescue. He happened to have some sitting around...it had been sitting there a few years...so it was pretty aged. So he said, come down and take if you want.
Perfect, considering I was planning on getting a bunch of his stuff for decor.

So, here was the wood in it's original state...



Then, after some torching and sanding.....I burned the stuff up pretty good, but was advised to be careful due to the dryness and fragile condition of the wood.



Then, add the Bosko molding, and a coat of spray on clear urethane to help protect if from the elements. Hopefully with the condition of the wood, it will hold up. I still have to countersink the nails, but that's for another day.



Attaching it was tricky...I had to secure it from the back with some 1"x2" s ...carefully, as not to crack the wood. So, it basically squeezed into place with the chain link between the 1x2's and the back of the pecky.



No worries about the unsightly, backside, a little bit of the split bamboo fencing to match the other stuff, and we're all good.

So, the pecky was pretty old, and dried out, and busted up too, with lots of cracks, but that turned out to be a good thing. It gave it a "wreck bar" type feel, and Bosko's carved moldings were a perfect compliment. I wasn't originally going for the super aged look, but I went with what I had, which turned out to be pretty cool, I think.
I came back with a 5 ft Moai Mask, the molding, and a few classic other classic Bosko masks....A good day indeed. Big mahalos to him for saving the day on this one

I have a cool looking driftwood-y piece of cedar that I will probably make into a sign to hang on the gate, OR maybe put a tiki on there...I haven't decided yet.

More progress....

Added some furniture, more bamboo fencing, fish net, super cool Bamboo Ben driftwood masks (a la Eli Hedley), made from REAL Huntington beach driftwood , and those new solar tiki torches with LED flicker bulbs....these things are great...they go on automatically when it gets dark, and last 8 hours. They look pretty darn realistic, like there's a candle burning in there.

Sorry, iPhone photos.


West Corner....perfect spot for lounging.


Bamboo Ben driftwood mask


Front Gate


Back of gate.

That's all for now...more to come.

This all looks great. I gotta get myself some of those flickering solar torches. I haven't even seen them around.

Teri,

Looks cool man! Went beachcombing recently and only acquired odd wood. But,

should look good. Back to the tree hut next week. Maybe driftwood masks for

the garage sale.

Moohalo!

Dayum...that is looking good. Great vision and implementation on the gate.

Every time I see a big billboard advertising the Carl's Junior Teriyaki Burger...I read it as Tikiyaki Burger.
