One of the best recent builds on TC IMO!

Looks great. Inspires me to do more on mine.

Agree with jimsflies. Have really enjoyed seeing this one being built, great job. Sadly mine has been on the back burner for a while due to a lack of time and funds but seeing the raw passion for the build in this thread might just be the thing that gives me a bit of a kick in the pants to get back into it again. Now if only I can find some affordable tiki stuff here in Australia...

Sheesh, look at that mirror like reflection off the bartop! Congrats on a great build, I love the use of the reeds on the interior roof line. Need some party pics and some more exterior shots!

Sorry wrong thread.

BUT now that I look at yours it too is a great build.
I never used to look at these much before but I see that people are getting pretty good at this tiki build out thing.

"Should I spray the matting with thatch safe fire retardant or not and more importantly, should I apply any poly coating on it? And if so, do I brush it on, roll and back brush for bubbles, spray...? The homeowner likes the look of the matting as is so whatever treatment I do, I want to alter the appearance as little as possible. I did already purchase the honey teal wood finish for the bamboo but I don’t want to change the color of the matting at all. A test on the bamboo does make it look more rich but deepens the color a little bit. Thanks for any help."

After reading I saw this.
Remember the matting will turn more grey over time so if you want to alter the appearance as little as possible then to put a coating on it would help keep it's color.
I use amber Shellac, you could use the clear one.
I even do the bamboo.

Amber Shellac makes the whole place glow.

When we put it on we use a brush and go over every part bit by bit, it's a pain.
BUT it looks great I think.
Some don't like the shinny look so you would need to spray with a satin top coat to get rid of that.

Good luck.

This is a really excellent space. Well done by all. I have a question though, is it heated? I'm hoping to tikify our 3 season porch, but I'm afraid of what freezing weather might do to things i.e. mugs, float balls, pictures/frames, puffer fish etc. Maine has sorta the same weather as Ontario, so thought I would ask. Again sweet build congrats.
