Pulling the boards together and getting some finish on them. The plan is to alternate a carved board with a plain board to make up the siding on the primarily visible side of the building, including the sliding side door that will open up the bar to the deck/hot tub.

Words cannot express how much admiration I have for this build. No corners have been cut in the construction of this tiki bar!

Working on base materials for the large sliding door. This is nautical hardware we are aging with good 'ol salt and vinegar to achieve some patina.

And the Tiki Guardian Spirit Dogs would like to wish you a Happy New Year, here with their favorite compadre at you-know-you-know-where. Happy New Year TC Ohana!



It must be Mai-Tai time because there is slobber.

You're working pure magic with that router! I hope mine come out half that good when I get to that stage. So far I haven't seen any part of this build that isn't a home run.

Thanks Donavan! There certainly are some router mistakes in there, but its imperfectly perfect as they say... Key for me was making sure I got the vacuum set up effectively which was not easy... and then being patient and going slow... hard to router the design with all those shavings flying around - a bit like driving in a snowstorm - good luck!

Let's get a holiday themed update in real quick. Not only can Commodore router a board or two, bend some beams and slap a roof up, he also hand makes pretty awesome Christmas gifts. Check out this Traveling Mai Tai Bar, which includes everything you need to make a Mai Tai including limes all in a form fitted case. He gave this to one of our brothers. Sweet!

Getting back on track now, here is where we're at.



For fun, we threw some boards up just to get an idea.



We'll be building a sliding door as part of this wall.
