Aloha TC Artists!!! I posted some pics of the build out of our new location a while back, and wanted to post some pics of the "near" finished project (seems like it is a never ending project;) Hope you like
The first is a pic of a tiki I am doing for our grand opening giveaway this Wednesday at 8:30 (a tiki that I almost threw out after seeing Benz's lono!). We will actually raffle it away with free tickets at the door... you can purchase extra tickets for $1. This will be my first tiki to be sold/raffled, and I really, really hope it goes to a good home Its not finished yet,,, so we will have to do a pick-up at a later date... hopefully a Tiki Terrace customer/TCer will win it!!! Some pics with and without lighting.. it stands about 5'
Then here are some shots of the place... hope you like!!!
This is our stage... we host a Polynesian revue every Friday and Saturday,,, music most Wednesdays, etc...
Here are a few shots of a series of 4-person booths we built from scratch... This was probably the hardest part!
Here are some pics of the tables and backrests for booths... all carved by brothers and I. oh, and I definitely cant forget to mention that BETE did all the white dots you will see on the tiki booth posts! If you need a dot painter for your next project, I can give a reference for BETE! A fine dot painter indeed!
Here is a corner shot.
A shot of our little bar
A pic of my favorite OA piece we own
Here is a pic of the window blinds we made to keep the lights out... and they open so we can still wash the windows!!! Gotta give bamboo ben lots of credit for providing great trim work for us study!!!
A shot of some fiberglass/airbrush tikis we did that were at the old location.
Here is a pic of a canoe we made with some OA decor in the background. Unfortuately, BETE did not do these dots.. the dot work on this canoe definitely lacks.
This is a pretty cool accessory, i thought... A friend gave these to us from an artist in New Zealand... they fit perfectly for the 10' Maois.
So that's it for now... we still have yet to add lanterns, two volcanos that are being glassed, giant sea shells, etc... but time is against me now that we are up and running. So hopefully we will get to this sooner than later.
If you can make it to the wednesday grand opening, please stop in and win this tiki!!! It needs a good home. If you are non-local, please stop by when in town... I really love chatting with the carvers! Ask for Scott... You guys are da best!!!

Thanks Tama and Seeks! Seeks, you mentioned in one of your posts of your method to ultra smooth finish... simply tons of hand sanding. so I gave it a try, and I got to give it to you... you must have muscles upon muscles in your hands and fingers! That gets painful quickly!
So here are some updates on Tiki #1... still have detailing to do. Plus a spear. But the bulk is done.
Here is some fun news:
I have started tiki #2 and will raffle it off on Aug 28. All the raffle income goes to the American Heart Association, so hopefully we will get a good turn out and Tiki #2 will also find a good home! We are going to streamline the event and run the video live on the internet... from our wesite. So anyone can tune into the event and even purchase raffle tickets via paypal, and do it from the comfort of your home,,, out of state, etc.. Tickets will be a dollar per... so its cheap and for a good cause!
Scott, Tiki Terrace
