Sorry, lighting is not the best

Man, all the best tiki stuff is in Illinois...that's it, I'm moving! Might have to post up at the bar and stay a month.

Seriously, very tight stuff....I dig your individual style on these masks...the size makes-um that much more cool. Also like how your bro is approaching the construction of that lamp by suspending it to work on it. The blue prints of the new place are kind of hard to make out, but from what I can see you will have them coming from near and far...."If you build it, they will come".

Wouldn't mind rocking a couple of those tee's...let us know when your go to mass printing.

Thanks guys for the replies... re buying tees, we hope to have the website store up and running within a couple weeks.... web guy is setting up a paypal store.

Here are a couple more things we are working on/have finished:

With a little extra time these days, we are trying to do some simple upgrades at Tiki Terrace. Below, we finished the new stage for the Saturday night shows and added a simple bamboo fence. The stage used to go up to that transition trim piece. we added an additional 7' x 8' of stage.


Another upgrade... We bought some more lauhala and covered some bare wall space (we have wanted to do this forever). We had to pull the booths for this, so it may look a little empty in the pics:



Here is a display book my brother is doing... there will be tapa in the sunken areas. it will house all the Tiki Terrace apparel on some type of rigid pages. The servers will bring to each table and try to sell the guests. We wanted it to be extra big for a unique presentation... hope it works???



Here is a mask we bought a couple months ago for $50.. I am guessing it is a tropical wood from the weight/density.. it is about 3' tall by 1'5 wide... The person I bought from said she got from either Kon Tiki Ports in IL (when it closed) or from a flea market... she could not remember. anyone have a clue where this may have come from?:


Eileen (one of our servers) is helping re-paint much of the trim with tiki supervising:


Here is a part of another upgrade... This is about 6' done... it will be 16' total. Interpretation... "The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness".. the Hawaiian state motto (the chorus in "Hawaii 78"). I am doing this with a router and chisels... my first time using a router without stencil guide... very difficult to keep steady!



Last, my brother phil and I carved this about 5 years ago.. our first and only wood carved tiki.


Thanks for looking
Scott

That big wooden t-shirt display book reminds me of "Fractured Fairy Tales"!
It could fall onto a customer!

From the progress shots, I wouldn't be surprised to see Tiki Terrace in some future editon of BOT.

Not really a fire at Tiki Terrace, but the owner of Tiki Terrace caught on fire recently! and luckly, there was a photographer to snap a couple photos

learn from my mistake... always, always, always wet raffia that is fastened to your body before playing with fire

here are a couple cool pics to share. Note,,, since opening the Tiki Terrace, I have been more out of shape and more accident prone with dancing... but my back-bar dishwashing skills are superb with no documented accidents! (cough, cough Lake Surfer).


Above, this happened right before I was to put the fire on my feet... I did not realize that a little fire started on raffia... then it spread... and quick!


My friend quicly ran out with marshmellows

I should have taken a pic of myself walking gingerly the next couple days.

Creating tiki... fires!

Scott

You don't have to dazzle us with fire, all the other stuff was dazzling enough.
