See you all in the morning.

We are ready.

Were doing up an Octoberfest lunch with Brats, Kraut, Potatoes and Octoberfest Beer.

Glad you are doing this. Looks like a fun day.

I would recommend getting a router with a 1/2 shaft as you can still use it for 1/4 inch bits too. The stuff I did I ended up using a large round bit that only came in 1/2 shaft.

The routers I use all have a 1/2" collect with an insert to use 1/4" as well.

Thanks for this post guys! great to see everyone being creative
And what a great idea for a get together, this is something anyone can organize
in any part of the Tiki world!

While everyone is doing good work I have to say I like Tiki Pops choice of colors.

This was a great class, big thanks to Derek and Roxanne for putting it on! I consider myself the "least artistic man in the world" and with Derek's infinite patience and his constant pep-talks, and Roxanne's awesome lunch, i made my first piece of art ever! I'm pretty damn proud of myself! Marion and i had a great time and can't wait to get our router back out and make some more cool stuff.
Can't wait for the next class!

What great day this was. I'd like to thank Derek for his pointers on router technique & his attention to detail in putting on a great class. Roxanne's lunch was off the hook. The potato salad & banana bread was awesome. All of the fellow router newbies were great. It was nice to meet all of you, even if we worked more than visit. I'll gladly attend another class, of any type, put on by Derek.
Thanks, Mike

Beautiful work from everyone! Derek, the tables were ingenious! Where do you find clear pine like that? The "clear" pine at Lowe's has more knots than a macrame hammock!

The wood was from Lowes.

I go through the entire stack if necessary to find the best pieces.

Thanks to Derek and Roxanne for hosting the router class. It was a very fun and productive day! You both put a lot into it. Everybodys work turned out great and it was not hard to do, just a long time holding a router. Since mine is still a work in progress I will post photos of it when it is finished. Thanks again to Derek, Roxanne and all who participated.

A Big Mahalo to Monkeyman and Goddess-Sunb for a great day. Seldom do I meet people as kind and sharing as these two. My comment is the same: a lot learned but I wish there had been more time to be more social. The day went by too fast.

I now have a lot ahead of me to continue with the router for the "Aloha Theater and Tiki Bar."

Here are a few pictures that don't duplicate those already posted.

I have finally gotten my project to a point that I feel I can share it with all of you. My idea was to build light boxes that would serve as shelves upon which I could display some of my cocktail glasses, bottles, swizzle sticks and other things that would be illuminated by up lighting. I built the boxes with a shelf inside to hold a neon light fixture and drilled a hole and routed a channel in the back to run the wiring. I painted the boxes in the hopes of making them look like something from PNG. Maybe I should have thinned the paint more to make it look more like stain. Since they are attached to the wall behind the bar I am thinking of putting bamboo poles and fish netting over them so I don't knock everything off during a cocktail mixing frenzy.
