Great, Kahuna! This is good stuff, going on here. Ben and Dinah and I have been talking about doing this for a long time. Lots of ideas thrown around in the conceptualizing stages... Once it's done, it should come out really cool!

Here's the water cotainment basin for the waterfall thinger...



The walls are going up. We have to use this plywood so that we can mount the bamboo and lahala matting to the walls. Stucco isn't good for anything...




These diamonds will come in later...

Arrrrrrrrrr!!!

The worst part of this build is...

I can't have any music playing in the background while I work!!!

When I re-did the Kon Tiki Tucson it was all Reaggae!

When I built the Kona Club in Oakland it was PURE FuNk!!

When
I built Forbidden Island in Alameda it was Heavy Metal !!
( Otto and Will the Thrill used to be metal heads and made me do it!

For some odd reason the home of the Hula Girls this week won't let me play any tunes.?!

I can't wait till Friday eve when this build is over!!!

Need me some music!!!

It looks like that the Tiki Room is really coming along. The carving on the wood pieces look great, it takes a lot of time and effort to do that.

Ben once visited the Virgin Islands, now they are just called "The Islands"
His legend precedes him like lightning precedes thunder

Spike, it's looking great! The nice thing is that it will be done quickly where most people spend months or years building their bars.

Believe me, it's not me keeping Ben from the music! There are 'other' reasons for that.

Thanks for the comments, everybody. Ben is doing one hell of a job with this build. The guy is a machine.
And now back to the progress...


Dinah burning all of the trim that I've been carving for the last month



The whole interrior has the plywood walls up now



Ben, installing the ceiling cover
