After another coat of stain. Look for these tikis to be immortalized momentarily in a new Eekum Bookum mug! Next stop some paint on the door.....

Quick test shot of the new mug, actual glaze will differ. Only 50 made for the launch.

We repainted the front door this weekend. It was interesting to see the various colors underneath, all the way down to what was a natural brown wood finish to begin with. I was a little nervous taking the letters and spoon handle off the front door but all went off without a hitch. We have the fiberglass panels set to come out and go off for restoration, one at a time, starting mid-March.

Paint job looks great! That's one thing I always notice that gives a "we don't care anymore" vibe is worn-out, damaged paint. I have to say, tho, a natural stained wood finish would look smashing there as well.

What a wonderful improvement!! Congratulations on your just completed project.

The Owner is certainly benefitting from his decision to trust your advocacy for "refined" Tiki improvements. Your efforts have saved a wonderfully classic themed bar. Certainly the value of the property has increased with the repairs and media attention.

I have always enjoyed small improvement projects and I am jealous of the incremental improvements you have completed. Visiting the Bahi Hut is on my list for 2018. I will certainly contact RoboTiki before I travel east from Las Vegas.

If a date is established for the Relighting of the Torches, I will build a 5 day visit for that event.

BEST WISHES TO ALL - -

And the whole thing that started this thread and lead to a mini revival at the Bahi Hut-- The awful sandblasted things that almost covered the front of the Bahi Hut. I mean can you possibly get any more clown tiki than this fucking thing?




They are still out there on Facebook Marketplace, hopefully to infect some Jimmy Buffet bar with a Seminole chickee hut.

It is totally due to the outpour of non-support from folks on this page that these things are not installed there now. Tiki folks can make a difference by speaking up.
