What's up tikifolk! I've been lurking on the site for a while and finally decided to join. Randomly got the bug to build a little home sanctuary and decided to show some progress from beginning til now...and beyond. I thought I was done til I visited the Mugoomba bar at Tiki-Farm and found this site...now I just lie in bed dreaming of a total overhaul! Upcoming willbe new wall and ceiling covering, central lamp(to replace fan) and, well everything else that can be done in my rented apartment.

first day with stools(most expensive thing in there surprisingly!)

got a bar and went to bensons import for decor stuff...

found table at some thrift type store in san clemente






maybe some bamboo to cover "wood" corners




wish I had read how to make puffer lamp before.*dremel*

This is the collection that got me started somehow.

glowing

newest piece...found for less than $100...that I didn't have.
Future of my bar depends on traffic court tomorrow. Hope you like it!
Would love comments, especially on the best way to hang new shelf...the mounting hook seems sketchy at best. Thanks!

Holy Moly THAT is really nice work. Welcome to TC kahakakruzer. Great start.
Is that a schooner on the table? I've been looking for a pirate ship in that size range.

Yea I got the ship from an old Spoons restaurant. It's nice but the rigging is ridiculously dusty...and nearly impossible too clean. It adds some flavor though I suppose.

I got the bug to refurb the bar this weekend after a trip to oceanic arts. I tore it all down and started back form scratch. I think it's almost done now, just need some rope lighting under the thatch, a lamp where i took out the fan, and some more mugs. The flash shows more than is visible to the naked eye (i.e. thaching overlaps).








frame for roof












A couple shrunken heads plus the other add-ons and I'll be "done".
Oh and a name for the bar, if something good comes up. Hope you like it.

Nice work...the bar really looks swanky now and the round bamboo shelf is a fabulous addition. Thanks for the pics...they are inspiring.

Really nice. I lived apartment life for a while and it can be tough, but it's possible. You just proved it! Good work keeping it "right". You have a great start. It just gets better and better from here.

I'm a little too straight edge to be mixing drinks, but anyone that lives in the so-cal area and wants to give it a try, just stop on by! The bar's open to anyone that will appreciate it!

Great job kahala! You've really created a nice little spot there. One can never have too many fezzes.
