Thanks Lori.

My wife said she saw the woodpecker on the center post again the other day. I don't think the owl is doing the trick. Fortunately, I haven't noticed any holes yet.

Here's a couple grainy progress pics of my current project. I'm redoing the draught beer tower. That chrome tower wasn't fitting in with the decor, and I also wanted more selection.

I made the top box out of pine and the base is pvc that I did a faux wood technique to blend it in.

Man your place looks great!
That brown Tapa stuff may ramp up the bee thing though.

Do this for me watch the bees, spring is when they really get to digin holes.
BUT try to see if they are attracted to the brown paint in the carvings.

Yep it may look like an old bee hole and pull them in.
I am no expert but I have watched these bees for some time now
and even a nail or screw can drag them in, any dark spot that looks like a hole.

Good luck!!

Thanks Tikiskip. I hope I don't make it worse with the tapa on the posts. I hadn't noticed any carpenter bees on the posts before. But I agree the carpenter bees seem to key on existing holes. I think they don't like to bore into painted/finished wood. But will use existing holes in finished wood. They will bore into unfinished wood (such as the structural members in the bar's roof.



Here's an update of my draft tower project:





I have been getting corny kegs (the one's homebrewers use) filled at the local brew pub. Its nice to have a few flavors to pick from. I can also use one tap to make my own soda water for the bar.

A few more updates....been making some headway the past month.

I refinished the bar top and finally trimmed out the front edge. I had been contemplating the best way to trim the front edge with the curved corners. This is what I came up with:

Some updated photos of the inside. Added fronts and doors to the backbar cabinets and also paneling and trim to the sidewalls. Sink is also complete and functioning. I still have a few pieces of trim to carve and install:

Great night shots. You did a super job on the whole space. I don't think you should give up on the mural-on-the-fence idea. Yes, it will get weathered, but that will just add to the ambiance and retro tiki flavor. The amount of work here is astounding.

This one is better, they call them Environment-friendly square durable wood-plastic hanging screen; fashionable.

Look at the cork one.

BTW- The woodpecker hit me again today...put a hole through the new boards. He didn't get on the carved sides yet though. So not sure if that blows the theory that they key in on existing holes like the carpenter bees.

I added another owl this evening. It seemed like the posts closest to the owl he left alone, so we'll see if adding one on the other side keeps him away.

I think I need some tiki banners or flags or something to hang off the posts to create some motion. Any ideas are appreciated.
