The tiles are in place and grout has been added. Now I just need to add the "backsplash" tile:


I added some bamboo, some routered baseboards and I got most if the lauhala up on the walls:









I hope to have other updates soon. Mahalo.

Thanks Grog.

Here's some more progress shots:

Mural is getting closer to about half-way done.


The bar sink in place (but not yet functional). Back-splash tiles are now lei'd.Bar top just needs edging now.


The soffit is now ready for it's "tapa cloth" covering. Unfortunately, it won't be real tapa, just something I make on paper...Unless someone wants to send me a 14 foot long by 8 foot wide piece for real cheap (or free). hardy har har.

Thanks for all the props hiltiki, Big Tiki Scott, Tobunga and Kahaka!

Hey Kahaka, did you see your lamp there in the foreground of that last photo? (Well a partial shot of it anyway...) I believe that's the first lamp you made using real tapa...but I could be wrong. It's an honour for me to have it. And one day, I'll collect others from you (and a few other master lamp makers too).

Here's a few other progress shots:


Routering a famous face.



Wood panel installed

With some of the routered mouldings around the door frame...



Which are similar to the routered mouldings around the windows...


Still very much a work in progress:



Mahalo for looking folks!

Thanks Tikiville. I'm sure you'll get a chance to experience it first hand, as your just a short 3 hour drive away...

Here's a few more progress shots. Please pardon the mess I produce as I'm pushing along...

Above the bar, I'm still not sure what the hell I'm gonna do here. I expect some combination of thatch:


Wooden edge pieces of the bar are routered and about to be stained in this shot:


I had the most challenges with the curved sections:


Did a bit of work on the mural too:


Added some lauhala to the side of the bar:


Here's a shot of the mess (and the mural, bar edging and lauhala).



Still lots more to do! Mahalo for lookin'!

Looking great. You're certainly packing plenty of detail into it.
