Hi! New guy here with a general interest in all different kinds of art! Just picked up a beautiful Hawaiian black velvet painting and a little research led me here. Looking forward to learning more about this amazing medium of art!
Thanks for being a great resource,

Brand new here...wanted to show off bar I bought at Goodwill for $60....it also has 5 no-back stools....super clean and sturdy, just has normal wear and tear scuffs on wood, no gouges or peeling.
Is this a cool find? I think it is.
Not sure if I did image right.

My name is Madison, but all my tiki lovers call me Duchess. I'm the general manager of Tiki Iniki: a new Tiki bar and casual fine dining restaurant opening next month on Kauai's blissful north shore.
I'm here to meet fellow tikiheads and learn as much as I can! Can't wait to hear from you!

Aloha to all O'hana.
Just checking in on a great site. I live in Central Florida and have had the Tiki/Hawaiian itch ever since I left Oahu in 1975. I'm starting a pool/spa at my "retirement" home. Decided to just give in to the Tiki Gods and theme the whole project.

Hi All, Jeff here(Tipsy Yeti)and I'm really glad to be here. I've been a lurker for some time now, I've loved Tiki culture from afar for years but have just really gotten into it. Here in San Francisco, we have a couple of really great places right in town. The Smugglers Cove, and the Tonga Room which is just a block from our home. I've been an artist for many years, mostly Halloween related items, Masks busts etc. I've sculpted my first mug and I'm waiting for my mold to dry out so I can cast it up. The Tipsy Yeti name is our home Tiki bar that we will be building when we buy a house, we hope to do that in the coming months. It will combine a tranquil Tibetan back yard, with a tiki bar. Very Disney inspired, we just love Disney. Anyway, I really hope to interact with you all and thanks for having me.

I have a 10 foot palm tree in my backyard. I had to have the top chopped off, it was growing into the power lines above it. I'd like to have it carved into a Tiki theme. Is there anyone in Orange County, Ca that carves Tiki? I'm in north Huntington Beach. Any help would be appreciated.
