I had enough left over lumber and stuff from this project in my dining room to build a Tiki bar on the patio.

We are naming it "Mahoe Lama" (Twin Torches)

First step was to turn the shed around so it no longer opened to the patio:

Next step was to cover the back of the shed with some bamboo fencing:

Next is the basic frame of the bar. All the wood the touches the ground is pressure treated(my father-in-laws cameo):

Framing is done:

Front shot with seagrass skin:

With roof and trim completed and torches installed:

Bartop. This is a cherry veneer stained and shalacked:

Long shot of bar. The lazy Susan table in the foreground is also a charcoal grill when the cover is removed:

Long shot with thatching on roof complete:

Finished Bar:


Still have some work to do on the bar top to really get it to shine. I also installed two electrical outlets behind the bar, for a blender and some lighting.

Enjoy!

That looks nice. But I gotta say I love the fish tank in the dining room.
Thanks for sharing.

Looks like a great place to have a cocktail and - well, its its 4:20 somewhere. I like the way you use existing architectural features into your designs (sliding glass doors, and withis the existing post as part of the frame).

Moving the fishtank and building it in was kinda an after-thought, but I am glad we did it. We are really happy with how it came out.

Everything was left over from the dining room/fishtank remodel. The cherry veneer for the bar top I got from my sister-in-law. She works at a boat manufacturing plant and they use the veneer for the cuddy cabins, they were going to throw it away. I bought the thatch (its a table skirt) on ebay, and I already had the torches.
