My bad....Sorry, I'm gonna change my name to "Slow-Poke".
I took yesterday off and finished the tiki post/panels yesterday. All stained and sealed. I got 8 of those bad boys done. I promise I will post the pictures by the end of the week...found the USB cord!

Here's the 1st set of 8 panel/posts for the tiki bar.



Here's the 2nd set of 8 panel/posts. I added tapa patterns to the 2nd set.

I plan on adding these panel/posts to the exterior of the existing patio supports. Each support will have 4 panels, so it fully encloses the supports. Here's a couple of panels I leaned up against one of the supports.

I painted the back wall, it's a orangy-peanut butter color, which you can see in the background. I should have moved some of the stuff I have in the patio.





I added some potted plants, pygmy palm, banana tree and white bird of paradise. Since this picture all the plants have been transplanted into nicer bigger pots.

There's a big bale of thatch I got from Island Thatch which I will add to the exterior. All the posts are painted a dark brown, like the 1st patio support.

Here's the sign I started carving at the Carving Hut at Tiki Oasis 2008.

Stained.




Painted and sealed. I decided to add a little white paint, so the name would stand out. Then I got a little carried away with gold accents. The gold paint had to be wrestled out of my hand before I ruined the sign.



These guys helped wrestle the paint brush out of my hand.

A picture of the tiki panels are installed!



It's kind of hard to see, but I added rope trim between the panels. It's a bad picture, but the lighter color of the rope really makes the dark wood pop.

I think the sign looks good as it is, though the gold doesn't show up very well in the photo.

The posts look good. You have been working on those for a while.
Congrats on getting them done.

It's nice to see people that are local to me doing the tiki to their homes.

So when is the party/chop?
