Friends, the Tiki gods have been smiling on komohana... I got the iron screwed down
on the new roof and side wall one day before we got our first rain in a long long time.

Autumn has arrived at last and the cool change is most welcome.

Anyhow, I've since got most of the ceiling done...

mates,

I know pets aren't Tiki, but I'll just go ahead and mention the dog briefly and hope no-one is too worried about it.

Chris - the little bugger seemed to double in size every week or so.

She's now about 10 months old - american bulldog - love her to bits.

Has the sweetest nature and is shaping up to be a great offsider.

I'll slip one last picture in of her at about 6 months old...

Your room is coming together great! And its always good to have a helper hang out while you are working! If I had a chance to do a floor like you do, I would do something with that pebble epoxy stuff that is on the market. Basically you have small workable piles of pebbles that you mix epoxy into and then spread out in 4x4 areas. There are endless color combinations you can get and it would be easy to clean and easy on bare feet. Best of all its sort of indoor outdoor in nature and would work great with your outdoor bar. I have seen a lot of people do it on driveways and around pools. There are tons of people who can do it for you but don't even bother, its just a mix and spread kind of a job. Anyway that's my suggestion. As always keep us posted on your progress.



Regards,

Suicide Tiki

Aloha shipmates,

Thanks for your comments.

Spliced the main brace good and proper last night - well and truly three sheets to the wind as the old time sailor men used to say.

Consequently, this one of about twenty five pictures I took - was the only one any good.

That's the doorway where I stood to take the first pic of the lounge, the "door" is just a sheet of 12mm ply
mounted on lift-off hinges and to which I intend to attach a full size poly-urethane foam carving.

You can see I've welded up a bracket to carry my guitars - really good to have them off the floor,
and mounted Erik on a length of 5mm rod - if you tap him - he will jiggle for quite a long time.

There are some weird perspectives happening in this room, Erik is much larger than he appears...




I haven't shown that wall on the right before - masonry - painted white,
a little over 5 metres long - you can see about a third of it - the rest is still under construction.

The chest on the floor holds the overflow of lp records that don't fit in my bigger cabinet.



cheers.

The life size wahine is up in Bali with a few of her girlfriends and has found
a painting which will go a long way towards finishing a project for the masonry wall.

friends, i got my poly-urethane foam carving done - and that's him hangin' on the door..







a couple progress pics for anyone interested..

6mm ply backing..(attached some wire mesh to the ply to help hold him on)..







lay on the foam..







i used 9 cans..







upside down with carving tool of choice...old bread knife..







..if anyone was interested in making themselves something like this
i'd tell them to go buy a slab of commercially available foam because
it has an even density through-out.
free forming it the way i did, there were a lot of voids that had to be filled,
so any money saved by spraying it yourself is lost in the time needed to go back
and patch it all up.

speaking of the voids, i had to go and buy another couple cans of p-u and while at
the hardware store, scored a tin of mis-tinted paint for him at about one fifth
the price, so that was a bonus i guess.

also made a coral reef diorama that was a lot of fun - simple things amuse simple minds.
the coral i'd had for years - mostly from Queensland - coloured with some water-colour paint,
shells, resin fish and plastic aquarium weeds - looks quite nice in person.
maybe one day will post closer pics.






still have lots of shells etc. to put on the fishing net




the opening in the ply will be a faux window, with the painting that mrs.komohana brought back from Bali in the centre.
scored some nice tastefull leopard skin to make a backing for that mask there and enough to re-upholster a radio chair i found.

Kon-Hemsby,

the lei inn is one of my favourite threads and the reason
why the woven ply is from floor to ceiling on the end walls.
