Here is the sand floor with a clear coat. I'm letting it cure for a week before the next step.

...and sorted out glass float net replacement...



Best of all, I picked up a Witco outrigger wall hanging for 20 dollars at a garage sale. The Canvas was very dirty and faded and the backing was bowed/warped from constant exposure to humidity (it was on the wall of an indoor pool area). Will post a photo of that once it is restored. I feel I have about 3/4 of the things I need to at least open Pine Kona. I will want to add clutter a little at a time over the rest of my life. It will never be finished.

Promise to never add a TV or a sign that say's "Tiki Bar".

Once you start you never look back. Good luck with your build!

You should hook up with Longboard...he has a place in Twain Harte.

Love the color and looking forward to your continued work.

Thanks VampiressRN. I've been shadowing Longboard on this forum for a long while. My house painter thought he knew where Longboard lives, but i have only a general idea of the road. Once Pine Kona gets done enough to soft open I may try and invite the local Tiki crowd. There is a bartender at Ed's who is also working on a Tiki bar.

I thought I was going to be the only one in this small Mountain town... was I ever wrong.

Looks like it is about a 2 hour drive from Sacramento to Twain Harte. Maybe you both will be crawl host ready in 2017. We could do the Friday to your part of the world. Hope you make it to our crawl this year. Seeing other people's places is very motivating and everyone helps each other out on instructions for various projects. I have had a lot of help from the Sacramento Ohana...great group of people and some amazing home bars. CHEERS

A little progress: I am trying to work with what I have, so I took these stools that came with the cabin...



...and did the torch brush thing...



To get it looking a little more fitting...

Nice work on the bar stools. I assume that's the "After" of the Outrigger. Do you have a before picture? I recently found the same one (with orange backing) for $160 and thought I got it for a steal. Amazing that things like that could still be found in the wild for $20! Looking forward to seeing the progress of your space.

That is the "after" on the Witco. Sadly I did not take a before pic.
Mine was also an orange fabric when I found it. I was surprised that it was white cloth painted orange originally. I went with a new green cloth with a bit of a burlap feel. The backing was a kind of cardboard, now a sturdy plywood. Frame is original.
