It's been quite a while since I updated this thread, but embarrassingly I haven't really done a lot to it in the last couple of years! I've been tinkering with it again this summer though. Still a lot of work left ahead, but here are some progress pics.

In this first pic you can see I finally moved the old Tiki Farm bar out of storage and onto the patio. I did a little burning on the bamboo on front of the bar to add some interest, also coated it with amber varnish. It's being staffed by our new bartender, an awesome Ku carved by Bosko The tiki next to the bar is a neat little stained concrete fountain by Chic-E-Tiki, on the bar is one of Bosko's "desktop idols".


We also added this great cedar Moai pole by Bosko next to the pool (excuse the lack of growies in the background, we had an ugly winter that wiped out all our tropical stuff):


Here's a shot from a little farther back:


My big project last weekend was to clad the underside of the patio canopy with bamboo blind material (from Lowes):


I also did some chainsaw-carved (then burned & brushed) wood trim to case the skylights and my wife pitched in and sealed all the wood trim with polyurethene. I carved some Moais onto the side trim to mimic the ones Bosko did on the A-frame beam:


The next project is to build the wall panels under the canopy, then next will be to put slate down. Hopefully it won't be another 2 years before that gets completed

Wow! I really like how your patio turned out - I don't think I ever saw the finished pictures. Where are your fish??

Thank you! The fish are sitting in the garage, waiting patiently to be hung We have a gazebo next to the pool, the fish are going to be hung under it. I've got a really cool marlin that Ken Pleasant carved that will go under the above patio canopy as well as a few other things, but I need to get the wall panels built first before moving the rest of the stuff out there.
