Hi guys I'm pretty new to the site but all the great bars inspired me. I'm using my spare bedroom(12x12) so I don't have the biggest area to work with. I started painting a map of the South Pacific on one wall and want to put matting on the others, any suggestions on where to buy it and bamboo? I have a witco bench and just bought my first two mugs today ! Ill post some pics of the progress below.

Good start. Beware! Once you start going tiki...you're sucked in for life. Try SunsetBamboo.com for Bamboo poles and matting. I've done a lot of shopping around and they have really good prices with free shipping and are very reliable and fast!

Witco is a good start...more mugs, then a bar, then Tikis...you're on your way!!! Have fun.

Well finances have caused a slower than desired amount of progress on the bar but the moai is nearly complete. I'm thinking of a few different things maybe make him a fountain or put an aquarium in his mouth. On the more certain side I want to put a fog machine in his nose and give him the gift of sight (red LEDs are the leading contender on that front) and ideas/suggestions?
