Hey, congratulations Slacks! I was looking at your thread and thought, hmmm...

"Nice job. He and I were newbies around the same time..." and sure enough...

Now the Kanaloa Lounge has an original song! It's by Forbidden Dimension's Jackson Phibes. Check out the You-tube clip:

I am in awe... I was looking up Tiki stuff here in Calgary and came across this and your Facebook (with photos of some of my coworkers from the Glenbow, which was weird ^_^ ). Absolutely STUNNING work. It would be inspiring if it wasn't so overwhelmingly good. At least it's filling me with the envy of an apartment-dweller.

I'm especially liking the way your lava rock features turned out, though that's like picking one jewel out of a crown. Thanks for sharing how you did it... I might try the idea for a smaller, portable thing in my and my wife's Enchanted Tiki Kitchen ^_^

Anyways, wow, amazing!

Mahalo for the kind words ETG! Seems we might already know some of the same folks. It would be cool to have a fellow Calgary tiki enthusiast over to enjoy the lounge someday. Happy Holidays!

Good stuff Slacks. Tell me about the lava fountain with the red light (bottom of page 11 of this thread), the effect is a lava flow in your photo. Spray foam for lava, painted black, has a realistic lava flow look. My real questions are about the red lighting placement; is the red bulb in the hole of the fountain or under the lip of the top surface of the fountain and is that some find of low flowing fog effect over the pond. Whatever it is the lave, lighting and fog give off a very real look. Believe me I've been on hot lava with fresh flows underneath on the Big Island of Hawai'i and if your a guy, wearing shorts and stay in one place for over 40 seconds two things happen; one the bottom of your shoes start melting and two; your huevos rancheros start cooking (if you know what I mean). Haha! I'll never forget that. I digressed, sorry, anyway good job SF.

Mahalo folks! I appreciate the kind words!

I've added a few pics of recent additions to the bar:

The entrance way with new trapezoid shaped painting showing Polynesian motifs, light up float lamp, and clay tiki sentinels based on the tiki guards at the now defunct Kon Tiki in Montreal:


Better look at the painted piece and sentinels:


A better look at the left guard:


A better look at the "Right Guard" Hardy har har!:


"Shark Jaws" that hang above the exit. The teeth spell out in binary code: Mahalo for visiting the Kanaloa Lounge:

And to answer the Creative Native. I just used one of these LED light Misters for the fountain fog and light. Nothing special, really. I wish I could find one that only did red and orange light, but alas I went with something like this (which cycles through a bunch of colours):
