Wow, Looking great! The router work looks good. I am in the market for a router, would you mind sharing the make and model of yours? are you using Pine? Thanks, and keep it going!

I just took Monkeyman's advise and picked up this one

http://www.ryobitools.com/catalog/power_tools/router_rotary/RE180PL

and I bought good bits from Lee Valley
The 1x8 and 1x12 is pine, the rest is spruce i think.

Thanks for lookin

Dagg,

I didn't even know there were variable speed routers! Mine's too fast I think. I'd love to slow it down. I use whatever's lying around for practice. Mostly Aspen, I think it is, really pale in color. Is that good or bad?

I'm by no means an expert on this but the more I think about it, the more I think it might be dull bits. Mine are brand new lee valley bits, and it's like a hot knife through butter.. Are you using old bits?

That's the sign, I got rid of it for a while but put it back up somewhere else because i like it...and its the reason Im here... Im sure Ill get rid of it eventually, but for now its staying! and so is the TV!



If YOU like that tiki bar sign, then keep it up for good! Same with your TV! You're creating your bar... Make it what YOU want it to be. I love Tiki Central, but don't ever let anyone here convince you something isn't "tiki enough". The original tiki bars were very inaccurate representations of Polynesia. Today's tiki bars are mostly inaccurate representations of those original tiki bars... And it's all good! It's about fun, friends, having a good time, and dreaming of island paradises. It is NOT about stressing over whether some random person on the Internet thinks something you like is "tiki enough", or historically accurate.

I have a tiki-themed home recording studio in progress, and I have one of those tiki-faced guitar plaques (that people on this forum pan) displayed proudly on my wall. I love it, because 1) it was a gift from my brother, and 2) because it combines tiki and guitars... Two of my favorite things! Make your space into your own interpretation of an island paradise! If you ask me, yours looks great so far!

Don't get me wrong... There is nothing wrong with going for historical accuracy, if that's what you're into. But if you like kicking back with the tv on, and looking at the sign that reminds you of your trip to Hawaii, I say more power to you!
