the lava rock chunk swag lamp looks great in it's new home- i believe i was the one you purchased that from. Did you ever get a chance to utilize the other 2 smaller table top ones ??

I also spy my luau lantern easter island head creation in the background....

I've been rebuilding the bar area and changing the room a bit over the last year. Here are some photos of my progress. Enjoy!


First, I had to empty out the entire room (not an easy chore...and one that upset my wife when I had tiki stuff all over the house for 3 months!)






Next, I built the structure for the bar (the main inspiration/idea came from Hula Sue's bar build)










Next, came building the bar top (for a fuller account of how this was done, see topic "A River runs through it" under other crafts











I had to flush trim the 3 layers to they would exactly match (which entailed carrying the bar top up and down to the basement...a real pain!)

















Next, I had to turn the bar top upside down and cut out channels for the Phillips Hue LED light strips (4 in all)







Finally, putting the bar top in place:














I am decorating the base of the bar to look like part of an old sunken ship (at least to have some nautical elements...)





Porthole has bubble panel, LED light strip to give effect of underwater





Tiki guards outside watch over the new build





Now, to kick back and enjoy some refreshments







More images to follow soon!!
