I have just completed my tiki bar on the side of our house. Started Memorial Day weekend. It's good to be done.... for the moment! For the record I have shamelessly borrowed the bar design from a post here by TikiMike. I'm a busy guy and don't have alot of time to do intimate designing - just have to get 'er done! So I share here my take on it, and thanks for all the inspiration I find here on TC!























I carve my tikis from EPS foam - coated with monster mud...


































And the finished product!





My super-cool Pariarts sign is in there...














A buddy at the power company hooked me up with some utility poles!



Mahalo for looking!

Hey, that looks great! What is "monster mud" that you use on your tiki's?

Monster mud is an easy tool that home Halloween haunters use... A mixture of about 5 parts drywall joint compound to one part latex paint. Stir well and slather on! Dries hard but should be painted w/ exterior paint for outdoor applications...

Getter done! Great work in a short period of time. Aren't foam and heated wire cutters great?! I like to play with foam myself and have used monster mud, but only for temporary projects. Have you ever tried any of the commercial coatings like Vanillacryl? They look good but are pretty pricey.

Did you order the tiki grass online? You said it's from SD... The only websites I can find that sell it are from that area, just curious how you went about getting it.
