aloha crew,

thank you all for your comments.

other projects have kept me busy the last few months, but i've got a little done in the lounge.

the girl next door got a new job a couple days after she took my picture frame to paint, so she didn't
have time to do it afterall.

anyhow, i had a go at it myself, besides, a lot of it was going to be covered by artificial flowers and foliage...


made the frames out of plywood...




carved a small Tiki...









after painting and assembling...




a few shots around the room...








last year, for my birthday, a friend sent away for those
two mugs on the top left, so if anyone from tikifarm should
see this, i'd say thank you for the care taken in packing
them as they arrived half way around the world safe and sound...








when an old bloke down the road died a few years back,
his widow asked me if i wanted this cabinet that was in
his shed, anyhow i said yes, beefed up the inside with
half inch ply, made some drawers and now it holds about
500 lp records...





cheers, bob.

Bob, the atmospherics and vibes are there for a really awesome home tiki bar. Love the new frame; as finished and mounted on the wall, it has the dimensionality of a diorama...

mahalo guys,

Chuck/ATP, your house reminds me a lot of ours, the people that built it lived
in the room that is now my Tiki lounge while they worked on it, circa 1955.

edit: was always curious, is the Chuck Tatum an acquaintance?

hiya mudbone, both the shell lamps on the shelf below the new "window" are
working (need to re-do the base to reposition the cord on the one on the left),
the black ceramic wahine lamp has a red bulb and the clam shells on the wall
have led's to light them.
have more lights to go in when i get my arse into gear... and yeah there are
awesome lighting ideas here on TC.

g'day Tom, thank you for your compliments... yeah when you're in the room
and glance at it, it kind-of looks like a window.. man i feel like goin' for a surf
right now, i'll take the right hander if ya don't mind, you can have the left.

p.s. really enjoying the build-out of the beach house Tom.

cheers Holler Waller.



i just posted on a thread in the general forum, then remembered it was for genuine
back in the day hot rod - Tiki connections, so i'll put it here instead so i don't
derail that thread.



hmmm... i decided to delete this stuff 'cause none of it really belongs.



note to self: don't get juiced-up and post irrelevant stuff on Tiki Central.

...but we all know there are those times when you've got no choice but to fight your way out...




when i went to get the ford stuff, (see post script below) i had some time to kill before i met-up
with the bloke, then found an op-shop that i've never been to before and there where these polynesian
weapons, going for a song... man, that was a great day.

i only had to re-bind the hand grips and three i've mounted on the wall,
the forth i'll put somewhere in the bar later... just in case.




p.s. apologies for posting the hot rod stuff, i wasn't sober at the time.

aloha shipmates,


Holler Waller, funny you should mention that, as the thought of that
club as a muddler had occurred to me, heh! bucket o' jungle juice anyone?

hiya moki and duke, very nice of you to say so.

ahoy Monkeyman, thanks for your kindness... and the inspiration afforded by your magnificent room.


well friends, that foul four letter word... "work"... has been taking up way too much
time lately, combined with other projects, little progress has been made other than
some more lighting and the beaded curtain to screen the music gear.

with soul destroying flash...



without...

aloha crew,

well, in the immortal words of dale kerrigan - i dug a hole...


several in fact, being for the footings on which to build the bar, at last!!

so what? you might say. well, the ground is almost like bloody concrete here in summer,
being clay/gravel, in fact there was a pit close-by where they dug clay to make house bricks,
and we've been having a few warm days...


(inside the shed)

at least my mate had a little sense, i just wish the lagoon was big enough for two.



anyhow, why i mentioned the make-up of the ground here... i like to call the back yard - satans' anvil,
on account of it being so hot and hard, where all but the most hardy plants wither and die... is because
i stabilised some of it with cement and layed a dirt floor for the bar, kind of like rammed earth.

progress shot...


and a couple of pictures of the interior...



initially i wasn't going to put any windows in the side wall but ended up making a couple openings to let
the doctor in - the sea breeze here is known as the fremantle doctor - but they'll be more like hatches than
windows - solid with no glass.
in the last photo, the door-way can be seen, and an opening for a roller shutter.

the lining of the walls is well under way and not much of the bamboo ply will be seen after tapa etc. is applied.
the ceiling is hessian, or as the americans say - burlap.

also in the last picture, it can be seen that my album covers around the circular clock have fallen off due to the
heat radiating through the wall, this is now cured as the bar shades that area.


more soon friends, bob.

Hey there Bob,

The bar is looking great mate.

I'm feeling for you with that digging too...hottest summer on record here in Western Australia.

Cheers and good luck with it all,
Gibbo
