Mahalo for the compliments folks!

Here's a few more progress shots:

Port Hole mirror on the door:


Horrible flash photo (so you can see the detail) of the "nautical wall" aquarium area:


Ahh...that's better:


No fish yet (hell, there's no water either)...but there's some (slow) progress being made.




Wow, that's really cool...kinda like the Shipwreck bar in Ft Lauderdale. Awesome !

Thanks Rugby, Bongo and Tikiyaki.

Now, anyone have any ideas how I should cut-off the storage room from the tiki lounge? Curtain, Bamboo beads? I'm just looking for some ideas...

BTW: That will be an A-Frame(ish) entrance when it's done.

I'm speechless. Everything is kicka$$ in your bar.

To do something something different but still nautical you could put dogs on the hatch with the porthole.

How did you do the rock wall? I love the look, and I actually figured it'd be a waterfall or fountains, a la Jolly Roger Inn (Enchanted Forest theme park, Oregon). Everything looks amazing, but the lava wall and the blacklight-illuminated mural are spectacular!

Thanks again for the comps.

Tikiyaki: I love that swinging moai saloon door, but I think I want something that blocks more of the ugly storage hallway(which, eventually, will be mostly behind curtains)...plus, those doors look like they would need to be carved by someone with more talent than I.

Wayfarer: I had to look up what you were talking about...my knowledge of nautical terminology is about as good as you can expect from a Prairie Boy.

TorchGuy: The lava rock is pretty easy to do. I asked a friend, who used to help fabricate movies sets, what she would do. She asked if I was gonna do it with water, and I said no, so she suggested this method:

First- hot glue styrofoam to the wall. Cut away any styrofoam that doesn't look like lava rock, and then, if you desire, you can add Spray Insulation foam from a can (Like "Great Stuff").

I then covered everything with about 3 coats of white glue (Elmer's school glue) over top. After that, you add a nice 1/4 inch or 1/2 inch layer of Drywall Putty/Compound/Paste (it makes sense to add a bunch of black pigment to the putty before you use it).

Let that dry a bit (but not too much) and then use the bristle edge of an old broom to add tiny holes allover the "rock". I then randomly added some bigger holes and painted the whole thing black with acrylic or latex paint.

If you try this, I'd love to see photos. And keep in mind, this isn't the waterproof method for constructing water features.

Right now I'm using a VERY similar method for finishing off the palm tree trunk. I guess you could say I like using this method. I'll post some progress photos of that real soon.

Sorry about that, I'm a Sailor so I've a half-***ed grasp of nautical terminology. Still, I'm enjoying your work a lot.

No need to apologize! T'sall Gud! It's an interesting idea, BTW. Just not sure where I would find "dogs" for that door.

I got more done on the palm tree:










At this point I'm just gonna live with it for a while, and then I'm gonna make some changes...

Took the bar out for another test drive last Saturday:












Everyone seemed to like it how it handled. (My hosting skills kinda suck though...I have a one "fancy" drink limit before I switched everyone to beer and wine. Just easier on me that way).

Dude, I can't believe some of the shit you're doing down there! When you started on the palm tree, I thought, "well, that'll be cute in a fake, plastic kind of way". But it's actually looking really, well, real! When are you going to invite the Edmonton circuit down for a drink?
PS. I know what you mean about the fancy drink minimum. It just takes too long and you end up doing nothing but making drinks for people!

Props to you man!

That place rocks and you deserve a STANDING O for the work you have done. I agree that tree is looking very real... The fish tank is just crazy cool! Can't wait to see more.
