I came across a stockpile of 3/4” dowels and couldn’t resist. It didn’t take long for me to think they could be turned into a pretty decent tiki bar. This project probably has more cuts than any other project I have ever done. Overall I am quite happy with it. Some key learning take aways – make it so that it can be easily dismantled to be moved or packed away; make it short enough to fit through a doorway; and it is the little extra bits that really cap off a project. Wood is cedar for the top, fir dowels, maple for the legs, misc pallet wood for hidden structural support, bamboo for canopy supports. Mostly scraps I had around the shop. Lots of PL adhesive and pin nails in this thing.
