Mr. PupuPants, I am very familiar with Hula Sue's as it has been an inspiration and enjoy all the updates. I didn't have the time to blacken bamboo and found it quicker to drive a couple of miles to Oceanic Arts and pay for higher costs. I would love to try my hand at blacking the bamboo in the future.
Keep up the great work Pikey.

Outstanding work. Where do you get all your bamboo supplies? I love the black bamboo. I added some to my bar in the Tiki Nui. It was expensive here in California, I can't imagine how expensive it in England. Can't wait to see what you do next.




I bought some fencing panels off an eBay seller who had cleared out the bankrupt stock of a Thai Restaurant outfitters.

Decent sized Bamboo is very dificult to find in England, so I was extremely pleased to find these decent sized fence panels with the lengths already split in half.

I puchased the last 9 panels (for approx $150 including delivery) and have only used 3 so far - the others will be used for their intended purpose, to create a secluded deck outside the room.

A couple of updated pictures.


Original film poster - the inspiration for the bars name...




Another recently framed picture in position (the cable hanging down is from glass float lamp that is to be mounted on a driftwood sconce above).






The second window has now been 'netted' and the first of the floats has been hung (the largest is as big as my head!):



All photo's are very bright as flash had to be used.

Just rewired a cool lamp - it's made out of Horn.

No, they were a lucky find in a discount store - approx $3 each...

I bought 10, I wish I'd bought more now.

I like how you used your tapa print material and sea grass in your frames.
