I've been working my tail off the past week to get ready for last nights party. Everyone seemed to enjoy the bar!
Here are a updated photos of the build the morning after the party:
Although not yet distressed, the bar top I think turned out looking very nice. It is made of cedar planks that haven been finished by burning with a spar varnish top coat.I notice quite a few splits have formed over the past week, but I think they look fine and add to the character. I may still add some manual distressing to give it more character.
Here is the back counter. I repurposed an old stainless steel counter top for the work surface. While not very "tiki", it is easy to sanitize and will weather the elements:
The party was self serve bar-tending. A double jockey box was used to dispense a wheat beer and an specialty beer (Black Pepper Honey Hibiscus Ale):
After enclosing the back gable, I found I had a nice bonus shelf to put some of my tiki objects. Here is a PNG spirit figure and one of Pele Paul's painted skulls on the shelf:
