Thanks Tigertail, I am I guess...it fills the day and makes me happy...it's good therapy mentally and physically. Running around to swap meets helps keep the blood pumping. I have met many interesting and remarkable souls in the course of Tiki hunting.
Hang10tiki...Any time your thirsty head on over !!
Pele Paul ....The pilings are yellow cedar that has been debarked, burned, and brushed. The reason Edison and the like refrain from giving out old poles is because of the creosote soaking they go thru. Somebody got some poles and burned them like firewood and ruined it for everyone. You can get a hold of a Tree Service outfit and beg some logs off them. To buy heavy timber and fashion pilings is almost cost prohibited.
The Tapahut is about twelve foot by twenty five foot and I am ready to maybe explan it's borders. It had been a Sunroom, all purpose room, library, catch-all, storage room type of place.
Yes !! The Velvet !!!... A good day at the swapmeet...a Velvet Tall Ship underway...for ten dollars...like I said, keeps the blood pumping !!
