I have a long way to go in putting my lounge together, but thought I would post a couple of pictures of my new book cases and my bamboo bar. I still need to build an overhead thatched stem-ware holder and a back bar. But the cieling in this room is 16 feet high so I have lots of room for tiki art!!! Feedback gladly encouraged.

fabulous shelves, but I have a stupid question.....

Couldn't you just flip one set upside down and have them meet in the middle and look like one really big piece?

Yes, you are probably right, I do need to play around with them some more....I was originally going to use them for the bar-back, but they make better mug/book holders. Here are some picks of my bamboo shelves...these are not organized either, so excuuuuuz the mess.

VERY Nice! I am really impressed with what you have so far. it has a great vintage look to it with a smattering of modern. I think you are on the right track.

Thanks for the feedback...good to know I am heading in the right direction. I also think it will be good to take my time to be sure I get things set up the right way early on. I will have to move that big framed world map in order to build the bar-back, but I have wall space elsewhere in my house to hang it. Here are the last pictures for now. This is the table where many a card game is played with my cheatin', drinkin' cussin' girlfriends. I find if I stay sober....I can win a few times.

I am working on some storage options behind my bar and can handle that work myself, but am in need of some help in the way of carpentry for over my bar. Excuse this goofy picture, but it was all I could find that somewhat looks like what I want. I need a custom made overhead stemware storage rack/thatch roof thingy. My bar is in the first picture on this thread. It is curved, so I would like the top area to match that in shape, then need that hut look on top. I've asked a couple of folks about the design of this and agree that it should not be attached physically to my bar, but should have its own legs to stand on (which will need to be fairly strong (probably poles). I have found several links for the stemware holders, so I can order those ahead of time, once a design is drawn up. If anyone is remotely interested in doing this project please pm me. Muchas Gracias Rum Luvers!!!
