Hi, 'm coming to this post a little late but I like what you've accomplished with the space. That black figurine you picked up from the garage sale is a piece of Australian kitsch by a guy named Barsony. He was a Hungarian immigrant to Australia after WWII and was popular in the 1950s-70s. Here's a pic of a Barsony piece we own.



His stuff is quite collectible and fetches $200-300 on the east coast. Great find.

aloha guys, thanks for stoppin' by.

yeah, i often thought whether or not to expand on the lamp, eventually deciding not to as i'd already stretched
the non-Tiki with the dog etc., besides, i wasn't sure if his work was all that well known outside australia.
i understand that quite a bit of it was exported and was popular in europe, but probably not america?
as no-one else commented until yourself, Thurston, another australian, this kind-of confirmed my thoughts.

anyhow, as it has been brought up, here's a link to a segment the collectors produced a few years back,
which i guess would be a good introduction to anyone who may not be familiar with his work.

cheers, bob

Beautiful stuff, thanks for the video. There was a similar style of ceramics popular in Germany in the 50s, often made in Austria (close to Hungary):





It is telling that these kind of Exotic portrayals seemed to flourish in countries that did not have a large indigenous population of that kind, just like Tiki flourished AWAY from the Pacific Islands:

aloha Tiki mob,


apologies Gibbo, don't know where the time's gone.


anyhow, routered a patern onto some battens for the bar ceiling..





made some small shelves..

















.. to incorporate onto one of the walls..

















benchtop and stuff to hide small fridge..













made a backing board for the cane shelves, original glass shelves at the moment but i'll make some wooden ones..









finally put some seagrass mat on the floor of the lounge, likewise a patern on the base boards.
they turned out fairly good, but aren't seen much, for the furniture etc...





















wasn't keen on having the weapons in such a prominent position, so moved them to behind the lounge chair..





also my fishermen, because i've found a nice large picture for the wall they were on.





the actual bar is about half made and will be bolted to some footings in the floor.

from that position and moving out of the bar..









..my A frame is taking shape..




cheers for now, bob

Amazing pieces you got there. Nicely decorated. Would be nice to see the entire room at some point.

Hey, hey , hey Robert....looking bloody good mate! I see the tiki found a nice spot in the bar too.

Did that big club come from Kalamunda?

Cheers and regards,
Gibbo

cheers all, bob.

aloha tc'ers

the bare bones of the inside bar can be seen through the open door but has yet to be finished,


meanwhile, my A frame is mostly done.





the steel cross-braces are yet to be covered with split bamboo, and as yet insalled
additional internal timber bracing will have the dual role of carrying extra lighting
and a good sized shell chandelier the life size wahine scored a while back.

along the horizontal member of the A, i will attach a carved board, with name etc.,
which will also cover the ends of the other poles and the side sections of the roof.

the roof area is about ten foot square and is formed by two layers of reed fencing with
black shade-cloth sandwiched between, total water-proofing is not really required.







plans are also afoot to re-build the barbecue area behind the A frame, which will include an outside bar.



cheers, bob.

komohana - I'm really enjoying watching your place come to life. On your A frame did you use the standard thin reed fencing and did you treat it with anything (a stain or sealer) before putting it up?

Wow! Everything looks killer!

My next project, now that Spring is here, is to work on my backyard. Your A-Frame is really inspiring! I have to keep my structure under 12' total height though...

Thanks for the inspiration!
