Fun lighting effect with the mask!I wouldn't worry about the parrots-if you get bar stools,people's knees will hide 'em.

You could always electrify the torches! You can find more info here:

Are you sure you did not build it so it would not get up the steps on purpose? Dog gone it, I guess you will have to go ahead and put together that tiki room.



I know, I'm just soooooo upset about it. I guess I don't have a choice. But what else can I do? (insert sly smirk and giggle here)

Very cool bar, by the way

It a very old Casio. It's called a Casiotone 701. I don't know much about it's history, but I got it for free when a friend emptied out his apartment. It's a little cheasy sounding, but it has some nice vibrato and reverb effects. I used to use it mainly as a writing tool, but now I do most of my stuff on my guitar and the PC.

Thanks for the advice and the thread! I will definately give it a try. I will post pics for everyone as my new tiki room arises from the ruins that are my basement.

It would be my honor. But you don't need to ask me for anything, the moai belong to everybody.


The moai that you see is the first tiki anything that I ever made. So I'm totaly happy that you all even recognize it for what it is.

Thanks everyone!!

Hey finkdaddy did you use one of those $1.50 beach mats for the top and behind the mask. I used the same thing on my bar. I'm actually thinking about using them on my walls then framing them out with bamboo. You can't beat the price.

Yes I did! But they were only a buck at the Dollar Tree.

We have a serious bamboo shortage here in Milwaukee, so the reed mats were the only thing that looked tropical that I could afford. I think it turned out ok.

I thought of framing them also. I was going to make some more masks and use it as a backdrop inside a frame.

It's to bad tiki doesn't use pine branches instead. I could build a whole tiki mansion with what is in my yard!

Finkdaddy,

The bar looks great! I like the parrots... The bar birds I'm used to seeing are of the "flipping" variety as I'm not the best tipper
You realize you'll have to decorate the rest of the basement now, right? There are some good threads here with resource links to matting, bamboo, etc.

I can't wait to start. Doing the bar first was the only way to prove to my wife that our basement becoming a tiki-bar was a cool thing!

Thanks for the kind words, and believe me, I will be asking everyone here for plenty of advice. Pics will be posted at each stage of construction, but I suspect it will be a while before I start.

Pretty easy to do and FUN!
