Ok thanks for that info. I've looked on eBay to but gabby had any luck. Thanks again for the help. By the way what was your search? I've been trying ceramic tiles.

That's the trick. Try Garden Tiles, Asian Tiles, Chinese Tiles... It takes a LOT of time to find those needles in the haystack of Ebay.

That link bombed on me. Try this if that fails for you too. Thanks for the tip. Those are hard to find!

I know this wouldn't be the "original" tiles, but if you can't find them, have you considered getting some made? There are several artists on TC (like MadDogMike), who do ceramics and may be able to do something like that...... Just a thought....

More carved trim for the bar front.


Hope to have this installed by Saturday for some special guests in the Hideaway.

Now, if you REALLY want a high-toned bit of decor, you could buy these tiles. Ming Dynasty, $695:


The eBay posting, mentioned earlier, still has 10, at $27.50/ $12 shipping:

It doesn't look like they are all identical, though; look at the other pics.

Been a long while since I posted anything here. A couple of recent updates:


A little hard to see, but I moved the rigging and cargo net full of vintage rum jugs and barrels to be more visible.


Finally got around to this one. I moved the Hawaiian Village Tampa collection over to its own space. Still need the Nui Nui mug if anyone has one to offer.


And I moved the Hawaii Kai collection to the top shelf and staged it a bit.

Working on my water feature and just hung my PNG slit drum, but no pics.

Ms Swanky took some insulation and created a faux wood frame for my PNG tapa cloth and it is now a TV cover.



Out of site when not in use.



Here is that trim I was working onin my last posts here. Used it to cover a plain rafter and Tiki 65 added lettering to say Okole Maluna Headhunter Lounge.



Front of the bar trim.

The background is a large drop cloth. We drew out the lines of the trim and then used coffee and tea bags to tea stain it.

The diamond shapes behind the masks are charger place mats we picked on clearance at Target. The other side is a traditional matting beige color.

One last thing to do is light the back of the masks. They are mounted with a 1/2 inch or so of clearance and I will paint the back of them white and put a light in the center to get a glowing edge... I hope. That is to be figured out.

Building a home bar is years of hording and then a year of building. We can now stop hoarding at least!

Definitely no shortage of talented creative people here! And I'm not just saying that to suck up OR get my post count higher

LOVE the bar Swanky & Ms. Swanky! Everything looks fantastic - the huge bar, the routed trim, all the tikis - everything! thanks for posting an update and allowing me to read about the build from the start. Great building tips and photos too. Well done!
