Hi, I've been lurking since the Hula Hop, which I learned of in a Tiki News email. I drove the 90 miles (from Wooster OH) to your event happily, even though the intense UV radiation sent me crawling back to my air-conditioned vehicle after visiting the vendors. Everyone was friendly and I nabbed some great Tiki collectibles. I lived in Columbus back in the 90's, but hadn't caught the retro fever until after the Kahiki became a drugstore. I figured that would scratch Ohio off the Exotica world map, but now there is hope!

When I lived in Col, I went to see MoAM downtown when they toured, and became an avid surf/instro listener. My interests also include Modern design and some Pulp/Retro Illustration. Unfortunately, I can't afford a house full of Knoll furniture and SHAG paintings, so I decorate "design on a dime" style. If I pass initiation, can photos be posted of my projects? One good thing about this part of the state, there are dozens of Amish woodshops ready to supply all one's furniture and tree trunk needs.

Iorana Senpai Lee!

Glad you found our little enclave. Your introduction was quite thorough and certainly all anyone could ask for. I'd very much like to see some of your project pics as I believe it would help your bid for Fellowship, but I'm afraid that access to the Galleries is for Fellow Moai only. I'm sure you figured this out when you registered there and couldn't upload.

But... never fear. I'll make a deal with you out of interest in your application: you email me the pics and I'll host them so's we can all have a looksie. How's that sound?

kukuahu@fraternalorderofmoai.org

Once I receive them and have a spare coupla minutes I'll post 'em here in this thread and you can then explain a bit about each one.

It's nice to meet you and we're glad to have you on board here in the Port as an Initiate Moai Ra'e. Stick around and chat with us a bit, and in time I'm sure you will gain a sponsor.



Ahu

Glad you dropped in and glad you made it to the HRHH.
It was a freakin' great time! (Despite the heat and the downpour)
Welcome!

Hey what kind of tropical party would it have been without a cloudburst???
I think it added to the event 100%!!! no if it could be arranged for next year to happen later in the evening, after the vendors have closed up.....

Here is a link to a photo montage of my most recent project...le bar "SHAG"! Originally it was a distressed fiberboard relic, with a total lack of character. I gave it structural integrity, higher legs, and the Tiki coloring (sooo many coats of paint). My budget only allowed for one SHAG sticker and framed note card, but that seems to be enough. I still need to address the remaining interior panels and find a little bamboo for the front.

The Eames table and chairs were also a rebuilding project...

My guess is that the forum admin has image linking blocked to avoid bandwidth drain.

Send 'em to me and I'll post 'em.

I second Ahu. Sweet piece of retro furniture, beautifully re-swankified!

Great job on the bar. I like the adapting of something into another thing.

Heh, another great feature is that with the legs removed, it fits snugly in the trunk of my Corolla...

Most of my projects aim to enhance a retromod lifestyle, but this is the only tiki-centric one so far.

You Know David I am going to have to trek out to cleavland, I am dyuing to see your stash of large Tiki Intems.. We went back and forth on TC about possibly trading... I didnt realise that you were into midcentury as well.. but then again I think if your a tiki nut that it kinda goes hand in hand.

Tiki David...you keep EAMES furniture in a BARN? :shock:

I do venture north to see friends and family in the Cuyahoga Falls region, but that is where my mental map ends. I have to take prayer beads with me when I try to make it to the Cinematheque or such. I did drive to a small pocket of "mod" stores along (?) road in Cleve that sounded better on the WWW than they looked upon arrival.

I'm betting you're nowhere near CF/Stow...
