Aloha Tikispeer - interesting handle. Sounds like Tiki is alive and well in Aus. I'm an old bastard and can still remember going to The Island Trader and the Jungle Bar in Sydney which were the only polynesian pop establishments around in the 1960s-early 70s. There was also the Mogambo in King Street Newtown which was more of a beatnik coffee house jazz venue. Sadly all gone now.

Looking forward to seeing your space develop.

THIV out.

And P.S. - that post from Grog was the longest sentence I've seen from him.



Aloha, there is one Tiki Bar at Bondi Junction we have to get to one day.
Yes Tiki Speer like Speer from the Descendants.

Just missed out on this yesterday. Guy was selling it in Sydney for $80.00 on gumtree but ended up giving it away for free on Ziilch the day before before we spotted it.

Mixing Feast Watson Golden Teak with Poly to test on the Bamboo.

Raw


Burnt with Golden Teak Poly.







I've ordered some Zinsser Amber Shellac to try ( yes you can get it in Australia). But will have to use poly for some things.

Great start to your bar thanks for the tips on where to get stuff. I have been looking at getting a router to practice the one you got looks like the go.

Now using Feast Watson Prooftint Colour Reducer mixed with these stains.

Just a quick burn and using ELM


3 burns + brush and wash and sand.. sanding killed it.


3 burns + brush and wash ELM


3 burns + brush and wash with japan brown in the router groves and ELM on the top.


3 burns + brush and wash CEDAR.
