G'day from Australia. I wanted to share with you my new project, a Tiki Bar next to my back yard pool. It was going to be a surf shack but after going to the Viva Las Vegas festival in 2012 and getting my first Tiki tattoo my wife changed my mind and the Tiki Bar idea was born. We started collecting Tiki mugs and statues, even getting a local nursery who carve sandstone blocks into garden ornaments to do a Tiki for us. We are up to the stage of setting the bar into position and next comes the task of placeing all our items around to give it the Tiki bar feel. I saw an artical about a guy who converted his garage into a Tiki Lounge and in it he said he got inspiration from Tiki Central which is why I joined and am posting now. I am attaching some photos which shows my progress up to now. Any thoughts or help anyone wants to send my way will be much apprieciated.

The original bar.

Pulling it apart.

The top off.

Adding the bamboo.

The top all sanded ready for the clear coats.

The roof section all built.

The area near the pool that will be used.

The surf shack idea has to be changed.

Painting and prepairing the area.

The bar in place with the bamboo wall completed.

Next comes the dressing of the area. I will post some pitcures when it gets done.

Thank you for looking.

Here are some new photos of the progress:

I will take more to show the mask wall and the changed celing.
