You know that Fatutu mug you got? Here's the 6 foot prototype:





Oh my, Isn't that Basement Kahuna's first tiki? Why yes... yes it is.





And look that's a Lake Surfer:





Inspired by Eli Hedley - a large chunk of wood, sea shells, coconuts, bamboo... stuff you'd find on a beach as art:





Lots of good food - crunchy ribs - poke salad - 3 pepper, pistachio and pineapple fried rice - buncha other stuff:





Jab & Pab... and Tall Mark...with a delicious Concubine in hand:






A Haole Kat in the house.



GlamJ on snare. RustyKey soaking in the vibe while someone plays his new Mele Baritone Uke. AND INTRODUCING... tikiconvert - on the thumpin' slappin' boomin' upright.



Chikitiki pointed me to Witco look and thus the trim around the base of the bartop...routed out in a standard design and burnt with a torch and stained.

Unga Bunga and Traderpup mentioned bindings around the joints.



susane mentioned a tapa pattern which we've kind of started and will continue this summer with stencils carved out of sweet potato(e)s. I wanted the inside of the ceiling beams random and the outside and bar-beams more uniform just to break it up a little. I also "weathered" the posts and will hit them with the torch again once the patterns are laid on.



A whole scene here. Weapons by Basement Kahuna. Neck-tikis by purple jade and tiKitOnY. Cabinet frame by Monkeyman. Music by King Kukulele and Tikiking. Lots of mugs by smogbreather. I actually got MY martiki glasses FROM martiki himself. Swizzle sticks from TikiBree, Kailuageoff, Swanky,Tiki Kiliki, and congamike. Book of Tiki (on lower right of shelf) by bigbrotiki.

Yes, we are ohana.

I vow that one day I will make it down to the Rusty Key, Pablus.
Until then I will have to enjoy your Aloha Spirit at Ohana again.

Seeing that Lono brings back memories of Hukilau 2005, when you made a beeline towards him and said "MIne."
I'm happy he has such a great home.

Oh, he has longer straws, but he only uses them when the company isn't as Beautiful.

Yeah we found the ultimate source for long straws: 7 Eleven.

Stealing is fun.

Yes, we borrowed thejab from Oakland for a tour of Florida.
Kinda like museum tours of King Tut's Treasures - only hipper.
