Ok I started this because my wife wanted a luau. Now I am ready to turn our pool into a tiki paridase. We are known for our Halloween parties, I build specail effects and design haunted houses. Now we are ready to rock! Hear are some pictures of my bar ( all used lumber and steel)

Hope this embedding works!
Jim.... More to come

Looks like a fun place. Where you at in Florida?
Oh and by the way when you start getting shit for the Jimmy Buffet and Margaritaville signs (and you will) don't listen to them. Jimmy Buffet is hated on Tiki Central. Just put Jimmy Buffet in the TC search engine to see what I'm talking about.

I am located in Tampa. Thanks for the info. I put some Buffet stuff up there for 3 reasons.
1) It is in Tampa.
2) I want a nice mix off stuff. It is also what was around the pool.
3) He is a friend.
So it is what it is. People are always like that.You either love him or hate him.
Thanks for the comments... Now I am out to build a waterfall.... Any thoughts?

Yeah, I like to find stuff. The stools are really retro. My wife wants me to paint the diffrent colors, but I like the steel.

Here is a picture of the draft system. We have 1 beer and on this night we had Mai Tais on draft. Mai Tais or what ever we mix up in a 5 gal batch and have it run from the keg o rator... That was a fun project to build....
