ShaTiki --

I built my tiki bar from the plans in "Pad," and here is a fantastic tip:

If you built exactly per the specifications, a 3' x 6' rollup shade will fit around the exterior of your bar precisely. Just tack or nail it in.

Went to Cost Plus, went to the roll-up shade section, selected a shade of bamboo slats and an interesting pattern.

Top of bar: just get some pressboard crap, cut it into an interesting pattern. I covered mine with green astroturf.

In fact, here's a picture of just the bartop:

Satan's Sin,

Your bar came out fantastic! And thanks for the tip.

Did you have any trouble finding the Sturdi-Brackets? I called Home Depot and they have no clue what I'm talking about in the lumber department. They look like something that might be in the gardern dept. though.

I got my sturdi brackets at Home Depot. Of course they didn't know they had them. The way clerks are these days, you could go into an auto parts store and ask for a spark plug and they'll look at you as if you just dropped down from the moon.

I'm afraid you'll have to go to Home Depot. It's in back, where they keep the lumber and other wood-like stuff.

Greetings to all

I found this site about a month ago and instantly became hooked. I was born in Hawaii and have always live the tropical lifestyle in Florida. Recently I started plans on expanding my house and got sick when the wahine brought home catalogs from Rooms To Go and Bombay Company. I have since enlightened her and hope to expand into the Tiki culture. My plans include a pool/patio, living room and art studio/office. I have already completed my first tiki and have started my second - so check them out and give me some input. Time is a valuable commodity so I will post results when I have some.

I will have to check, but I think my wife's best friend, Lorain, lives in Victoria or thereabouts.

Cool! If you two are ever in the neighborhood, you're welcome to come for a visit. If your wife and her friend want to hang out, I'm sure we can entertain you! I recently counted our booze, we've got 70 bottles at the moment!(our wedding guests weren't the lushes we expected)

Ok so here goes, and I appologize in advance for any lack of brevity to follow...

I just wanted to finally offically join the TC community after lurking for the past month or so. I have only caught the fever recently, and have kind of been preoccupied with learning all I can.
It all started for me at Hula's in Monterey, CA about 2 months ago, which lead me to the Tiki News and the night that hooked me: "Otto's Forbidden Island at the Conga Lounge" (in Oakland, CA) on Sept. 27. At this event I got to meet Otto and, thanks to winning the raffle, my friends and I are now planning a trip to use the 2 free nights at the Caliente Tropics they won. It's been nothing but Rum and Martin Denny ever since...

So my thanks to you all for all of the info here and I really look forward to contributing.
