Here is the completion of moving in a family of 24 fireflies on to the ceiling of the tiki bar.

All of the wiring is hidden behind the Philippine Nipa





From the wires behind the Nipa the wires to the fireflies are run between the bamboo reeds and the ceiling.



This is a picture of some of the fireflies.




To really see how the fireflies are animated I posted a short video on You Tube:

The power chord runs down the wall behind this bamboo pole.

I used to think carving was the most difficult then I realized that coming up wit the right design is equally difficult. Now I believe coming up wit the right colors can be as challenging.

Here are a few new pictures.








The beginnings of a new backdrop for the bar sign.





New trim around the bar entrance way.

Thank you tikitube. I really like the different textured mats you're using for your tiki bar Lanai at Windsong. The one thing I wished I had is a raised ceiling.

That looks fantastic, MaukaHale! The colors and textures and layers... wow. You've got the whole "something to continuously catch the eye" thing down to an art. What's amazing is that you've accomplished this without the traditional tiki clutter approach. Your Aloha Theater looks clean and orderly and utterly immersive. Your custom frames are quite nice, too. I'm going to need a number of custom frames sooner or later, so I'm taking notes on your efforts.

Thanks! Yeah. I wish I had more vertical space to work with, too. We do our best!
