Excellent work! I really like how you cut the back bar vertical wood.

Got the bar front almost done this weekend, added some of the accent lighting. Looks really good at night, and fading from one color to the next!

Great job...I'm ready to dive in your pool and then suck down a cocktail. Love all the bamboo.

That turned out really nice. Is the thatch real or fake. The fake looks good and lasts a long time.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone. The thatching is real, gonna consider synthetic when it's time to replace, thanks! As for the name, I live in Charleston, on James Island. The name is a sort of play off of a very popular place on Daniel Island. The Daniel Island Grill, which is most commonly referred to as "The DIG". So being this is our "James Island Getaway", we thought The J.I.G. would be cool. Funny thing is, I can see the ocean from the bar, best music selections for me are Buffet, Marley, Beach Boys, Chesney, Kracker,etc... Anything setting the tropical or beach scene/mood. But it never fails, someone will get to my laptop and Will Smith's "Gettin' Jiggy with it" will come on the stereo and liven things up a bit more! lol
And a note on the stools, as I said earlier, they are not the easiest to assemble. Have to trim here and there to get the fit right on a couple of them. But this past weekend had a 6'9" 315lb football player and a 400lb work buddy riding a couple of them, and they were up to the challenge! Cant beat them for the $$$! If you like the look. Thanks again, and more pics coming soon hopefully!

First attempt at a fan/light for over bar. Not sure its gonna be final selection. Did change the white globe out for the wire cage looking piece. Made a difference, but not sold. Welcoming all/any ideas y'all may have. Thanks

Looks great; probably one of the best Tiki bars in South Carolina. I was wondering your location and how things will hold up during the winter months. I'm from Summerville, SC so I know winter season is fairly short.

Thank you for the Kind words, I'm on James Island. Gonna be first winter for the bar.I'll plan to see how it is affected, and make a plan to cover, or protect it somehow for those few months. Again, any suggestions from the experienced is always welcomed!

Wow! Your bar's incredible. You did an amazing job fabricating everything.
