Thanks for an update. Love the look of the portholes.

We fully understand that quality takes time and we are a very patient group. No rush.

Thanks man. It's been real slow. Doing 99.9% of it by myself which takes even more time. Also the winter month kinda slowed down the process too. And the fact I'm lazy doesn't help either...

I haven't posted any updates because I've been doing all the boring stuff... Ceiling, walls, insulation, vents etc. I'm just now starting to get some lauhala matting on the ceiling and the bamboo ceiling fan up.

I've been learning to router boards for the beams. Self taught, trial and error. I'm pretty happy with the results.

I still have 2 portholes to put in, a closet to build, a wall project, lauhala matting, fishnet, etc etc etc... Lol
Then I get to do the outside.....

I should be done in 2046

Here's a peek ....

That is some fine router work. Did you carve out the islands and other items with the router?

Yes.. All done with a router. Each beam represents a different theme, hawaii, maori, etc. I have some killer ideas for themes of the other beams that I'm working on... I'll post them when I'm finished.
Over 300 ft of routing to be done just in beams and door frame alone.

See why I figure I'll finish my hut 3 weeks after I'm dead? Lol

I'm thinking I would like to add a porthole in my design. How large are the portholes you are using? They seem to get expensive pretty quick for the larger ones.

Also, I guess that with most I have seen for sale that they would need that outside ring made like you did for it to screw into. What material did they use? Also if you don't mind me asking, what was the approximate cost to the outside ring made?

That is some amazing router work. Love the detail you were able to get on those.

I can totally see why you will not be done for a while. LOL

Great work!

Wow fantastic carving on those beams! Are you using a plunge router or a Dremel tool of some kind?
