What an awesome collection!

I was leery of posting my plans for fear of offending (as it isn't really technically all 'tiki'), but our 'lounge' is going to be similar in theme to yours, the "Corsair Cabana". I wanted it to look like something Grandpa and his buddys would have set up when he went on his senior trip in the Pacific courtesy of Uncle Sam during the 40's. The bar itself is going to look like it's made from a GPW shipping box, and I want to somehow find coconut logs to put around the poles in the basement, so there isn't an overflow of bamboo...

Thank you for sharing and inspiring!

Jason

my pleasure Jason, anytime you need anything, Ive got quite a few original pix from the South Pacific of real bars, EM and officers areas, as well as just cool stuff they would have in their AO.

Great office !! This Mark 9 depthcharge I saw a while back at an antique store would make a great end table.

The depth charge is bad ass.

Wish it was in California, I'd snap that up.

Great theme, I really look forward to the development of you other areas as well. Side note, my grandfather was in the first medic crew that flew into Nagasaki after the bomb was dropped. He took a sword from a Japanese general, which my Dad still has mounted in his office. Sharkskin handle, all the details, but the blade is actually military issue, but sharp as a razor still to this day. Your collection reminded me, so I thought I would mention it.

had a chance to paint last weekend, went with a real tiki green for the walls and a nice mid century modern blue for the ceiling, so hate white walls, much like Bamboo Ben!!
I wanted to get these up but been busy doing 12 hour shifts at work....

painting 90% done, the new improved danger room lounge....


my early 1960s bar and stools, found for $17.00


top of the bar, this was the 1st night I was done about 1:00 AM having a Blue Hawaiian or two...

sub battle flag


moved two wicker chairs into the room also


out of focus Tiki that looks like Roger from American Dad..


large Japanese flag


The WWII and post USN radios.....

Your WWII collection would look really cool with lauhala mat on the walls. I love the items that you have.
