That Was so nice that someone rescued the Bamboo and other stuff from the dumpster. The tiki gods Planned for you to clean that garage just on that day. Too bad they didn't have you starting an hour or so later.
Excellent room and good KArma to go with it!

You throwing out bamboo is not good but in the end it went to a good place.

I was reading your last post and was like yeah, yeah, and then put two and two together and then, nope, not a bamboo treadmill. Think about that.

Wo!!!!

Almost a year and I still haven't linked Tiki Lee and Laura's Tiki Hideaway to my website. Doh!

Might be back up in the Bay Area to do some work for one of Tiki Lees co horts around Oct. Nov. If Tiki Lee's not to busy, maybe we can do a "Vouge Type" photo shoot to complete the room. Would be a classic for the BOT vol 3.

Many MAHALOS for all of your thanx and praises TC'ers.

Man, this thing is the Sistine Chapel of Tiki rooms! Great work Ben and Al, the detail you've put into this project really stands out. I've just spent the last 15 minutes staring slackjawed and drooling at that gallery. Kudos to Tiki Lee too for having the vision and not compromising in any way!

I pity the fiends who aren't stunned by this! Truly a piece of art. After I finish weeping at the beauty, I'll begin weeping that MY place doesn't look like that!
(Unless I finally pick up these #$*! carving tools I bought a few months ago but just give furtive glances to every now and then... )
Too sweet.

Hey, Ben -- I think the Vogue photo shooot is a great idea. Maybe we can build a volcano outside the window and see a supermodel being tossed in...

BOT vol 2 refers to Sven's upcoming book on Witco. It's supposed to be out sometime in 2007.
