As if "Steve" wasn't awesome enough on his own. Here's the front of a new tiki bar she's taking to Hukilau:

Ooooooo...I want one of these.

CW

She'll have one or two at Ohana, though she's quit mounting them on the board with the burlap. Just the tile, with a hook glued to the back. If you definitely want a mounted one, let me know and I'll get you the price. FYI Hula Suzie on her own is $25 so you can guestimate the mounted price from there.

She won't be able to bring the bar to Ohana, but here it is or rather half of it. With several "celebrity" endorsements from Hukilau 2011.
Image
Jeff "Beachbum" Berry approves
Image
Rob V. Burr
Image
Rob A. Burr and Leisure Master on the best side of the bar
Image
Martin Cate from Smuggler's Cove
Image
Tiki Kiliki even found a spare moment to stop by
Image
The only thing missing was more cowbell, and the Disasternauts were happy to oblige
Image
Suitable for bartop dancing
Image
You too could have a bar like this, just let us know the dimensions and LuRu will work up a quote.

Speaking of shameless self promotion...that's a very handsome mug that Mr. Berry is holding....

But seriously, that bar is simply amazing. What a fantastic piece, and I'm glad you had it at the Hukilau so that so many people can see your awesome work!!

okay I haven't been around so much on the boards because I have been literally spending nearly every waking hour in my studio (yah!)
I just finished, like literally an hour ago, all new product for this Japanese show this weekend. (It is at the gardens where Loki works) I am pretty pleased and thought I would share even though it has nothing whatsoever to do with tiki.

Here are a few of the highlights - I have a whole album up on TTW facebook page.

How much are the "bamboo strips"? I was thinking of using them between regular tiles on my backsplash.

That sounds like a good idea. The strips measure 7" x 1.5" and they look like 3 little segments of bamboo. They sell for $3.50 each: http://stores.tortugatileworks.com/-str ... Detail.bok . She also has the thinker single sections of bamboo that are 6" x 3" http://stores.tortugatileworks.com/-str ... Detail.bok . The website shows them in green, but she can do them in the brown also. They're also $3.50 each. Those can also be rounded more for a countertop edge like on our outdoor bar. Of course there are bulk discounts and ways to work out shipping, but those prices and dimensions give you a ballpark.
