Here is my Tiki bar I am building. I have a post in general Tiki on Tiki inspiration which finally motivated me to build the Trade Winds II after a recent trip to the islands.
I grew up loving Tiki, my mother went to Trader Vic's often when I was young and she later designed the Trade Winds in Oxnard, California back in 1964. If you are not familiar with the Trade Winds there is a excellent post by Bongofury on the history of the Trade Winds with many images. Any help or advice would be appreciated.
Thanks Ojaitimo

The beam buried here was once part of the Ventura pier that was destroyed in a storm and salvaged years ago.



We used wine box ends to make the door. (Shipwrecked of course, with the wine)
