Ever since I joined TC way back in 2002, I've wanted to build myself a legitamate tiki lounge... I've carved tikis, sung about tikis and tiki bars, and lusted after my friends' bars... and now, the time has come.

I bought a house built in 1961, a couple of years ago... After a bunch of construction, we have finished most of the interior decor.










Bamboo Ben called me the other day and said, 'so you want to finally do your Breezeway, or what'? He talked me into committing to a date. And Dinah and I are super happy to have the king of bamboo on board! Here is the space...







The official build happens at the end of July '12, but I've started carving trim and panels so that we can just assemble everything with the time comes to put it up.








Progress is happening... more updates as they come!

There are a couple of places where a carved panel will sit nicely. So I got to it this weekend.

Sketched out



Started carving with a router but finished with a hammer and chisel.










Taking cues from William Westenhaver and Bosko, I took to the torch.





Here are the panels, all torched and wire brushed.

Congrats man I feel once you have Ben make you a room there's never a reason to leave the house except to buy more rum . I know I dream of the day A.) I own a house and B.) the day I have Bamboo Ben come over and customize it.

Thanks, Walt. Yeah, Ben is going to be a BIG help with this. And if he didn't prod me into finally getting this going, it probably never would have happened!

Yeah, we should probably have a little 'grand opening' party.

Time for a Bar not another car!!!

Every time Spike posts a pic of a car I'd be like...
there goes the bar!

a little "grand opening" party sounds interesting.

Now where are we going to put the T.V.?

Did a little more carving and burning on my big tiki, yesterday...




Also, Dinah and I started laying out the design for main wall behind where the bar will be.
