Thanks for checking the new photos out and all the responses have been really wonderful.
ATP and Lori, thank you so much
Hang 10, if you are in neighborhood let me know...it's a hell of a drive from Vegas for a Mai Tai though Jon.
Komohama, Bob thanks a heap old mate, your bar is fantastic, I really enjoyed the chance to check it out in person too! Really, I'm not a wood guy, love the stuff, can absolutely appreciate those who can make things with it but unless it goes together with 6 inch self drilling screws I have no clues. Thank goodness for those self drillers
Vamp, Marlene, thanks a bunch for the nice words, you are too kind.
BayIslander, Cheers and I'm really glad you like it, that bed may just have to stay in that case...might have to carve it up a little or find something more fitting to leave in there. It's great for the occasional visitor that's for sure.
TikiSpeer, you are so right, finding anything much in Perth is a real mission and I've been scrounging around for this stuff for years. Sometimes you just need to make things fit if it's not quite right. This stuff blends well for an overall effect at least so it's not too hard. We live in a tiki desert.
Longboard, Mahalo mate, if it was near as cool as yours bar I'd be very happy. Those ceilings were fairly straight forward after a little study here on TC, did them on my own so not too difficult. I had the look in my mind, I just had to figure out the steps involved to make it happen. The thanks go to those who have been there before me and posted pics.
TH IV, thanks mate, your comments were really appreciated. It has been a blast to built and fill and I'm very happy with the outcome. We spend a lot of time in there so it was well worth the effort.
GSC, just missed yours as I hit the button hence the edit but thanks for your nice words too, glad you found the pics helpful.
Cheers and mahalo for everything guys,

"old school" was exactly the words I was looking for. Looks like it has been there for decades...and that is a wonderful thing.

WOW! Your place looks fantastic! It would be nifty if you can find a way to keep a tiki-themed guest room
