Hi Everybody,

Hope everyone is well, Just wanted to show a little video I made of the home bar which I have been working on over the last three years or so.. I'm from Sunny(never) Swansea, Wales, UK. I've been a keen and always learning Tikiphile for the last few years..
There is a place on the coast (The Gower) near my house, which is known as smugglers Haunt where smugglers used to run rum many moons ago, so thought it'd be an apt title for the bar..
I hope you like it.

Here's a link to the video..

If you want some pictures, I've taken a bunch, let me know and i'll post them here! Hope everyone is having a good day, if you're ever in Wales, stop by! I've also got a 1962 Boat bar,which I'll post pictures of at somepoint if you fancy having a look!

Cheers and Mahalo,
Al

Thanks A lot Hang10tiki!
I really appreciate that, I was on a pretty minimal budget so made the majority of the stuff in there myself from bits of wood lying round and improvised a bit,it keeps growing weekly though, thinking about perhaps knocking down a wall and extending it..We'll see, I'll post some pictures at somepoint too!
Cheers,
Al

Great job there. It has a wonderful feel to it and looks like a great place to unwind and relax at the end of the day. Video has a great vibe to it with the music in the background.

I completely understand about being on a budget and reusing things. I'm doing that now.

Keep sharing.

Creativity replaces lack of capital admirably in your bar! Personally, I love the cozyness you've got there. Beware of making it so big it loses that.

Thanks a lot! I'm really glad you think so, I definitely agree with you on the making it too much bigger suggestion, as it does have a cozy feel currently, The thought I had was to build a smaller structure and have it as a separate 'lounge' room next to the bar so it wouldn't really affect the actual bar section, just thoughts at the moment but putting some plans together just in case! Thanks again for your thoughts and compliments on it!

Here are some photos(sorry there's quite a few of them, I got a little carried away..)of the bar and also I've included some pictures of my 1962(I think that's close enough)Boat Bar!
Hope you enjoy, if you still havn't watched the video in my earlier post and have a few minutes spare, I'd really appreciate it!
Cheers,
Al

A great set of pictures and I love the boat bar. I have never seen anything like that as far as I can remember. Very cool.

Nice work! I remember seeing a Boat Bar like that before in a Dayna Delux photo shoot and I've wanted one ever since.
