I'm so glad I discovered this thread. What an incredible piece of work! This is absolutely gorgeous. I especially love that faux tapa. Absolutely beautiful and a real living memorial to the old school.

That's the ticket! No more excuses for white walls! If THIS, the very first layer of the completely otherworldly environment that a Tiki haven is supposed to be, is not there, whatever comes after is weakened.

I just recommended you to my contact at Trader Vic's as cure for their new "Tiki Lite" lounges...

I'd be delighted to darken up the place a bit on the new TV 'Lite' establishments. Have tapa stamps...will travel!

I've been working on some lamps for the ceiling in my room. Here's one I get a kick out of.....

Here's a shot of the 'puffer-in-the-float' lamp with some other hat/basket type beachcomber lamps in the background that I've been putting together as I find the appropriate materials.


Yaaaaggggggs! Turn those lights back off! Still gotta put some boo up on the ceiling before I can put these lights where they're going to stay. They're just kinda hangin' around now.

Last but not least, here's a shot from the other direction showing the bar with lighting installed underneath, the clam shell sconce and the new puff-n-float lamp. I have a philsophy on rope lights, which I used under the bar. The device that produces the light should not be seen--only the light it produces should be seen. Rope lights just have a modern cheese (bad cheesy, as opposed to the good cheesy), disco-ey, nite club vibe to them IMO and that's not the look I'm after. I do appreciate the warm glow on the bamboo produced by the rope light though.

Back soon,
Brad

Details...it's all in the details. Your home bar and the work that you've put into it is absolutely stunning.

A little faux bamboo paint job on my bar edging fer ye.

Base coat

Finished w/ faux bamboo. Base coated, glazed, nodes painted, sealed and toned to make a little darker like the rest of my real bamboo. Sorry-no stepxstep pics when I was doing this, had to work fast.


Here I've placed a pile of scanned, photoed or otherwise copied and printed ephemera on the bar top. I used Modgepodge (sp?) to hold it down then the pour on resin gets poured on.

Another shot of the bar top--pre pour.



You can't really tell in this pic but the 'Pour-on' resin has been applied, dried and is good to go. You can see the reflection of the bamboo in the background of the pic on the bartop that might give you an indication of how slick, thick and shmoooov this stuff is. It's really laid on thick too-prolly close to a quarter inch thick.

Mo pics soon--got a lot done in the Jungalero Room last night to get ready for a large party this coming Sat. 12-15 so I'll get those pics up as soon as I can find the time. Tanx for looking.
Brad

Wow Brad, that is looking more and more bad ass every time I see it. What kind of pour on resin did you use?

Ha! I just emailed you on progress, and here it is! Way nice. I agree on the rope light. That's exactly how my bar will be. Weird. Split bamboo curved front with rope light under. If rope light can be dimmed, even way better.

Wish Ms Swanky and I could be there tomorrow night for the party. We'll get over and see the new upgrades soon.

East Coast Tiki!
