(long pause) Speechless here. What an amazing room. So vibrant with textures, colors, shapes and carvings. Very comfortable feel, kind of clean and contemporary while at the same time being native-inspired. You have quite an eye for design -- It all fits in so well together and with so many individual, detailed pieces incorporated. Your collection of tiki items is fun to look at. One of my favorites pieces would be the carved canoe, another the large tiki which you recently added the bamboo around the base. Even like both your bamboo bar stools and your chairs at the square table (find the upward ends on the seat back very appealing). Top notch carpentry work there.

Have to say your how-to's make me feel like carving some trim now! Very inspiring thread. So is the backyard Phase 2? The moai and fountain makes for a nice start.

Its been awhile since I last posted. Polly-Nesia, you might say its a phase two. I have added two new water features to the back yard and I do have plans for another concrete tiki.





This one is really cool since it has lights inside the water.



I have finally gotten around to carving the frames for the large tikis.





And this is new trim for the walls.



Some of the trim is being used to finish off this wall.



More to come.

Here's one last one to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

If only I could get Dan to leave his stereos long enough to cruise through your thread I know he would be hooked. It's fun to look back at when you began until now. Great room and yard. Wendy

Hi Wendy, thank you for reading through. Dan does enjoy his music and tiki collection as well. I enjoyed looking at the pictures of your trip to Kaua'i.

Here are some progress pictures. Right now I'm creating frames for several tapa pieces.



Since this tapa is from Papua New Guinea, I thought I would give it a head hunter look with the help of skulls by Shag.



I still need to put some stain on the wood.



For this other piece of PNG tapa, I decide to use pineapples. It still needs paint, stain and some detail done with a wood burner.

I finished both of the tapa cloth frames and put the one with the skulls next to the Gilligan's Island pinball machine.







The frame with the pinapples went into the restroom next to the Aloha Theater.



I used a wood burner to add some detail to the pneapples.



I'm currently working on adding Bac Bac mats to the back wall of the tiki bar

Here is the before picture.



The in progress picture.
