Glad the South Pacific Room Thread has come in handy for you. Things are looking great.

MaukaHale,

When you going to post the rest of the ceiling project.

I really appreciate your showing us the step by steps.

Also, I'm stealing your outlet box extensions idea as well.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks everyone for the comments! I still have a ways to go.

Longboard, I'm still finishing the supports but there is a chance I may hang the ceiling tomorrow (Wednesday). I need two other guys to help me since the width of the reed I'm using is 6 feet wide. It will be two sections. The room is 12 feet by 17 feet. I will use two strips running down each section and one strip covering the seem between the two. If I don't hang it Wednesday it will be next week.



The concept I'm using is from Monkeyman's "South Pacific Room." Here is the page that shows how he did it.

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=35684&forum=20&start=15

One of the things I did was mix some Cherry Wood stain with Golden Oak stain. I did red spots to make the wood look a little more exotic than just a plain piece of Golden Oak.

If you look at Monkeyman's ceiling he overlapped the reed and used either 3 or 4 ft width sections.

Monkeyman has been extremely helpful in sharing his expertise.

This forum has been fantastic for gaining tips and ideas for tiki bar build outs. I have to thank Bamboo Ben for a post he did explain that scissors work best for cutting Lauhala matting. I saw where some people tried to use a razor blade with a straight edge, The scissors worked great.
