Yes, I'd like to order one (1) "South Pacific Room." Just back it up to the large hole cut in the back wall of my house. I'll take care of the tieing in to the existing structure bit.

What can I say? FANTASTIC work! I LOVE that carved beam and your choice to subtly color the different elements, rather than stain it all one shade. It lends another dimension to the work and gives it a whimsical vibe a la Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room. I want one.

Awsome work
Did you use chisels or a router for the carving?

Derek, your work is, as always, immensely inspiring. The same kind of quality and attention to detail you put into your picture frames really shows through in that carved trim. That ceiling reminds me a lot of the bedroom Bamboo Ben did a few years back. Truly beautiful. Really enjoying watching this room take shape.

Trader Bob,
its all done with a plunge router. Its the only viable way of tacking this much area. A chisel would take a long long time.

Gator Rob,

I remember that thread and that room that Ben built. Absolutely one of the most inspiring tiki rooms Ive ever seen. I think the similarities exist because of the shape of the roofline. Not many folks here on TC have vaulted ceilings in their tiki rooms.
