Updated pictures from the construction this week....







The face frame will be added Friday. Doors to follow. The space below the untiled area is for the kegerator.


The mixing area will have a counter top placed in Friday as well. To the right is the area for the fridge.


Tiles will be placed this weekend....



Thatch, bamboo, lighting and all other decor will be put up during next week with a projected completion date of next Friday! Woohoo! Then one week until Grand Opening!

Hope you enjoy the updates! One day it's just a stack of wood, the next it's a BAR! Who knew!

More to follow soon!

Mahalo!

holy crap...I love your bar! The roof lines and the painted wall...absolutley perfect! Looks like you have some real carpentry skills...the house looks vintage, how much trouble was it to connect your nice new plumb and true bar, up to the old out of plumb house? Drop many f-bombs during framing?

Keep sending the pix...their really great!
See ya..908tiki.

Looking good! Do you have a need for a sink? I may have a stainless steel one up for grabs. Really looking forward to the grand opening.

Great looking bar! Love the sea wall.......please post a pic of that when it is done. You are a taping machine.......I think I would have gone the lazy route and made a stencil.......looks good.....

908tiki - Oh thank you for the positive feedback! But I cannot take the credit for the hard carpentry skills. I have a fantastic contractor that swings the hammer! I designed the bar but he and another gentleman did the heavy duty stuff. The house was built in the early '50's. The bamboo painting I did all myself and while I don't think they cursed too much, I know they scratched their heads a couple times thinking.. "Now HOW are we gonna get it to work the way she wants it??" Haha!

Jamie71 - I know JUST how you feel. In a few more days I'll be able to do JUST what you pictured... RELAX and have a cocktail or 2.. ahhhhhhhhhh .. SO close I can almost taste it!

Matt - SO so sorry it's taken me this long to get back with you on the sink. Unfortunately, I don't have the plumbing to warrant one but oh how the offer is much appreciated! I'm looking forward to the grand opening, too! It's going to be a lovely afternoon and evening, I believe.

bongofury - Thank you! The sea wall is pretty much finished as is. With the exception of a large tiki added in the corner. The colors are very subtle and the credit goes to my Mom nd my son. They did a really terrific job on it and had fun in the process which is what this whole experience really is all about! I am DONE with taping now, too! I would have used a stencil but I wanted a truly erratic feel to the bamboo. No two poles are the same! It's going to feel really good to be able to sit back and enjoy the hard work this weekend

Whew.. !! As you can see, it's been awhile since I posted anything. I've been a BIT busy lately. Some of the pics are a tad dark (it got too late after some fine tuning yesterday) More daytime pics will following tomorrow in the AM!!





There is still more decor to go up as we move closer to the opening....











I hope you all are enjoying the process and the step by step progress as we move forward everyday! Final pics will be added three days before the grand opening. Have a couple special things to do in the tree yet!

Thanks again for all the feedback and support!

A couple of daytime shots.



Here is the tree that nearly canopies the whole yard. It will be lit up tomorrow and I'll post then as well.



More to follow!

Two HUGE prized possesions....I must give thanks and credit where it is due!!



Matt Reese made this beautiful sign for The Big Woo and brought it to the grand opening. It captures exactly what I envisioned while dreaming of a sign one day!!

It was such a wonderful surprise and it looks just perfect above the bar!

Many, many thanks to Matt for his talent and thoughtfulness!




....And in case you didn't notice this before....



That lovely lamp on the left is a handcrafted OnaTiki bar warming gift. The first light to be put up in the bar and very special!

Again, huge thanks thanks to Ona, his hard work and his time! Can't thank him enough, honestly!



It never ceases to amaze me of the quality of people here at TC. Their kindness and generosity knows no bounds. I feel very lucky to be part of it all.

Mahalo!

There is new work to be proud of in the Woo, Ben. YOUR work!



This Maori is absolutely stunning. The detail in Ben's work is truly amazing and the pictures in his Marketplace thread and the ones here simply do NOT do his artistry justice.



He fits into the Woo as though that spot was waiting for him all along!



Thank you, Ben. For your time and talent and all the care that went into making this. I am very honored to have your work here with us!

WOW, Thank you too TikiTikiBoom. I Must say that you are correct in that he looks like he was made for that spot on the wall. He Owns it and I'm sure he is Very Prowd to be hanging around the BigWoo. Thanks So much for your kind words and for supporting my meager attempts at Tiki Art.
THE BIG WOO ROCKS.
