Thanks, everyone.

I have a couple more small additions. The first is a little bamboo and rattan chest that fits my record collection beautifully. I was able to take the records off the shelf and make more room for what I'm expecting to be a successful run of Tiki Magazines now that they've started back up again.

Also, I have another swag lamp waiting to get restrung with a longer cord. I plan on hanging it across from the round orange one on the side of the window at some point.

It's a never ending process…

Couple more additions. My wife got me a great record player/CD player/tape player combo that has a vintage look and can supposedly burn vinyl to CD. So far, I've only used the record player and the radio features, but I hope to experiment with the recording features later. I sweated where I was going to fit this in the room for a day or so and then decided to keep it on my bamboo straight-back chair that nobody ever sits in. Everybody either takes a comfy chair or a barstool, so I think the player has found a home front and center.



This last pic is of a mask that my friend, Daniel, found for me at a local garage sale last weekend. I was thinking about hanging it on the closet door it's propped up in front of, but it weighs about 40 lbs and I don't want to risk tearing up the door. I think he looks good where he is with a net full of coconuts beside him in case he needs a light snack.

What a fun place to hang out. I really enjoyed looking at your collection. I found my War God bank! Wendy

I realized I haven't updated in a while. Here's a couple of things that are new:



I added the Arthurium made of monkey pod. It's about the only plant I can't kill, apparently. Sort of like putting together tinker toys, but I like it.



This big fella I picked up today. You might have seen me walking around the streets of Portland with it, trying to remember where I parked.

Largest Kava Kava man I've ever come across and my wife let me buy it.

That's why she's my Valentine!

I am back in California once again and the Portland Hoodoo Room is no more. A little sad...

However, that means I get to re-create the Hoodoo Room once again with a brand new blank canvas!

All the Tiki stuff is in the room now but 75% is still in boxes.

Also, while our movers did an awesome job with the packing, the labeling was a little vague, so I'm scrambling to find stuff and the house is probably going to be an ongoing puzzle for a couple of months.

The Hoodoo Room is BIGGER and now has back glass doors that open out to a PATIO which is cool. It also has built-in shelves and a brick gas fireplace with mantle shelf.

On the down side, the front entrance is five foot wide and has no door to keep out pesky kids and small white dogs.

I've currently closed off the entrance with a couple of bookcases, but am planning to build a five panel screen using large outdoor shutters or perhaps louvered closet doors.

Also, I can't paint the room. I sorta got away with painting the last place but this time is a no go. However, I will hang a lot of art and maybe some tapa cloth.

In any case, here are some progress pics. Really no progress, but it shows the starting point...

Tom,

That hutch is amazing! Me thinks you need a fish tank to match.
