Lurking here for years but finally building my tiki bar. Using recycled pallets and bamboo harvested from the backyard. Wall matting will be here next week.

Used section of oak pallet for foot rest. Wood is so hard I broke a bolt attaching it.

Coming along slowly. I added a few outlets in anticipation of many lights. Can't decide on a bar top.considered the glowing river I saw on here but trying to keep everything on the cheap and homemade.

Not trying to be a downer but I've seen a lot of people recycling pallets for "green" type of building lately.
How does one not know that there was any Toxic materials leaked and shipped on the pallet? Just my 2 cents.
Carry on.
