Hey brah,
Aloha! Great tapa work cuz! All da kine freehand huh? Shoots! Good to hear about the new bar opening up in LB. The wife and I spend a lot of time on the mainland here at our gallery so it would be nice to head down to a new "tiki" bar someday....
Keep up the good work!

Malama Pono!

thanks for the prop's.... the owner wants to open 'as soon as possible'... but we know what that means... so stay tuned

most all the tapa design i 'use' is of Fijian oragin...rather then Hawaiian

funny this bar rail idea/job was given to me just before Ben asked me to go to Oakland and the Kona! that had another vintage wooden bar rail!! tiki is going off like a string of fireworks tied to a Chinese pony tail!!(shit, that may be the most P[I]C thing i ever wrote) well anyway some great things happening

this carved bar rail is not a piece of Fijian tapa cloth or meant to look like one, however there is just enough dark browns in the piece to make it a perfect bar rail... but art/design is all a personal crap-(sh!t)-shoot anyway.

Aw C'mon, I thought you glued the real thing to the rail thing. Are you Sure it isn,t a Real Rail? Thought I saw one just like that in the Authentic Hawaiian tapa rail book.

Not that the Fijian tapa cloth bar rail isn't enough, but will a Crazy Al tiki also grace the decor?
