I jus completed a 6ft bar with a monkeypod top fo wun customer. I cut da monkeypod into a natural(sp?)looking shape. Monkey pod is da wood dat allll those little wooden bowls you see at da thrift stoa fo wun dolla or da kine... big fork and spoon set.


you can kinda see da carved honu(turtle) on each side of da bar top. Da couple requested 2 turtles carved on top. I just did a basic outline fo dem as dats all dey wanted. look at da grain of da wood though....cheeeery ya! almost looks like Koa.




small part of my mug collection from da local antique stoa


they gave me a pic of a tiki they already have and asked me to make a stool out of it's face. So, here it is.


breakin in da new bar. dats my beer, Hinano of Tahiti, Okole Maluna!


Mo carvings later. Happy Hollidays peopo!

shootz

I love that raw looking top. Around here there is too much of the "log cabin" woodsy set, but that color and grain make that exceptional. Just beautiful!

Question for experts:

On the panels that have Aloha on them. How is that being stained/painted/finished?

I am convinced that staining is an art form in itself.

Thanks.

hey guys,
mahaloz, glad ya like the bar.

Boobam Ben, remember when you told me some jobs are "lobster & some are spam" well this was a spam dinner with pork and beans. I screwed my self because they guy had me all confused and i quoted him a price for a 4 footer instead and I stuck with it and made it anyway. I gave him my price and couldn't back out man......although I wanted to.
Last month was 2 lobsters though! So its all good. Hey Ben, I was so inspired by your shop(work) when I was in Calli by da way that you probubly see your design in my bar. All props to you. you make some awesome bars and furniture brah.

Ya Chiki dats da one we talked about. pretty disgusting huh? You and Boobam Ben should go to the Mills and get a nice big a$$ slab of wood and cut it out naturally and throw it on top! looks beautifull mixed in with da bamboo! try to get one with two tone like mine. I'm going to make my desk out of the same top.

Eh PJ, howzit wahine! we'll see if I go to da Hukilau or not. I would love to go back to da Maikai, it's jus da flight from Honolulu to Florida HO!!! it's soooooooooooooooooooo loooooooong!
I would love to see all da kewl peopo I met the first time and maybe talk to a few that I didn't get to talk to. I'm kind of a shy and quite type guy so It takes me a little while to sometimes to yell your name across the room. So hopefully some peopo don't take me the wrong way. But I would love to go back.

Tiki410, yes thats stain on the aloha sign. It's not hard, just get yourself a sponge brush dip it and stain.

shaka! live aloha!

I hear you about that flight. I flew back to New Orleans from Honolulu on a plane with broken air conditioning, *aaagggh!*, and that seemed like it took forever.
But c'mon, there's gotta be something we can do to entice you into braving the wild blue yonder again...
Oh yeah...nice bar.
