One more of the Coon Tiki project by Basement Kahune and Tiki Diablo mostly, but also Crazy Al and many others. A couple of Doug Horne pieces and the Hawaiian Village Tampa collection.

The Hideaway looks great Tim!
I think I even took a few hits at that TIKI, Man I was wasted though.

Swanky dude, ur place is kick ass! But where did the top of the blue door go? Sorry if you already answered this (couldn't find it) and can you access that space with the stairs?

The door is boxed in. You can see the edge of the box in this pic:



Under the TV, right of the big guy:


We made a box and then took a mess of stained bamboo and drilled holes and glued it in place. This just sits on top of the door frame.



The space is technically accessible. If you move everything out from in front of the bar, you can roll back the vinyl flooring and unscrew the sub-floor panels and then lift out the floor joists and then take away the two boxes that frame them and you get to the stairs again. Oh, and remove the rail post and asian tiles...

We do not ever want to have to do this...

There are inside stairs to the basement, however, they are much narrower and more obstacles, like the door frame. That means, so far, large furniture and the washer and dryer are too big to get back up stairs... We intend to open up the door frame when the time comes that we have to get something out and hope it is big enough. We have a lovely bamboo framed couch down there we wanted in the bar, but it is just too huge to get out now!

That might be the greatest PNG statue I've ever seen, outside of the 20ft abelam.

If you ever need a kidney, you come to me first with that statue, and we'll work something out. Hahahaha.

It may the world's tallest Oratory Table. I think it has a brother in PNG that is for sale. Getting it here is the issue... It is 75-85 years old from the Korogo Village.

The brother one could be bought for maybe $6000. If you care...

If that included shipping, that's pretty tempting. Though I'd imagine it'd be about half that to ship it.

I do have the first appearance of the Green Goblin comic book that I could unload. Hmm.

Maniacal laugh.

Added more carved trim. Eventually this rafter/post will be fully enclosed in carved trim...
