Fantastic job! I think the front of the A-frame cries out for a big tiki mask.

Finally finished all the main stuff. just a few small things left. Done enough to have a few friends over. Here's a few shots all decorated & ready to party. I got so wrapped up to being the host & (I had a few Mai Tai's) I forgot to take pictures of the party.




Still looking for something to go the A-frame, not sold on the orange paint either. I am now working on a puffer fish light bar to go across the header. Is a Tiki Bar ever really done?

Thank you to all who have posted comments. Murph & Martini Kings, after checking out your places I really appreciate your comments.

Here are a few shot of the puffer fish light bar / header I just finished this weekend. This was my last project before getting ready for Oasis. Thanks again to all who posted comments. See you all in a few days.

I am REALLY diggin' this outdoor bar! You've got the proportions right, the lighting right, the bamboo, lahala, tapa... it all looks very very good. Did you spray any poly on that lahala to keep it from rotting away in the sun and rain?

I'd consider a tapa print (faux or real) on the orange-y part of your A frame and then mount a flat carving of some sort or maybe a spear or club or two. Or if you're handy with the paint, try something like this:





Oh, and one bit of constructive criticism. If it were me, I would add a big ole tiki or two on one or both ends. Because, after all, it ain't a tiki bar unless...

Nice job! I love to see people go the extra mile for the A frame and not just a flat roof!

1961surf: Yeah, I know the white fence boards have to go. I have been concentrating on the bar only. I'm not sure if I want to strip them & carve on them or replace them with bammboo. I will eventually cover the brick colums also. Thanks for comments. I still have those chairs in my garage to re-finish. I'll be calling you on those later.

GatorRob: I like the tapa print idea. I had been thinking of something like that ever since I saw Howland's thread. I know I need some tikis. I want some large ones but $ is always a concern. I'll be spraying everything after Oasis. Thanks for looking Rob

tikitony: I couldn't have a tiki bar without an A-frame. See you at Oasis, Maybe even pick-up a tikitony original for the bar. Thanks Tony

Fantastic looking little bar - you should be very proud mate!

And yeh, I second a tapa cloth design on the end of the A-frame. Check out the PNG embassy here in Australia:

and a close up
