Phil, I can not wait to see what you are doing with your place.

Mahalo! Mrs. Waikiki Tiki spoke to Bob and Leroy at Oceanic Arts and got me Lauhala. How sweet is that? Yep I got plans...

Looking good Phil. With all your connections you should make out like a bandit and build a great space. CHEERS

The back wall is up... Quite thrilling

Great job, looking forward to progress pictures.

More pics please
:)

Your new wall makes a big difference. If you are going to actually mix drinks at your bar, you may want to consider some upgrades there, access to water and a sink are huge when you are in Mai Tai production mode....

Aloha,

I don't do anything fast. I have to ruminate obsessively over every detail. I write like that too. Appreciate the comments. All plumbing decisions have to go through Mrs Waikiki Tiki first. She likes things to be up to code. Can't blame her. Anyhow, here's a panel I'm working on.

Nice...

It's coming together quite nicely.

Awesome, I love seeing build-outs from the very beginning.

You cannae do a hell of a lot with metal shelf brackets but you might consider getting a couple of cans of different coloured stone spray paint. They'll blend in more and be of a lower profile. Even just using something like this and not getting too fancy with it could bring those brackets into the same general tone as your matting or your shelf wood:

We did something very similar at a mate's house and it worked nicely. We tried flat colours but it just looked like painted metal - we did the stone spray paint and there was a nice depth to it, especially under the mood lighting.

Somewhere on here in the past I saw where someone covered metal shelf brackets with two pieces of half round bamboo..that looked pretty nice.

Nice build!

Figuring out the ceiling. Added some Tapa...

More progress...
