Gretna, NE 68028
United States

This is is the project that got me started down the path of woodworking. I started this as a garage remodel to store my 1967 Mustang and motorcycles. It has now filled with wood and tools, leaving no room for them.

The garage was built in the early 1900’s, and is 18’x19’ with 7’ headroom. I raised the ceiling to 8’, installed R-38 insulation. R-13 in the walls along with new electrical and lighting.

The walls and ceiling were then covered with 1/2” AC plywood the staple holes were all filled joints caulked and primed and painted. The stripes were intended to be Ford Blue, but I am not sure if the car will ever fit in it again.

The last picture is my first real woodworking tool gloat. a 12 Hitachi SCMS for $250 and a free Hitachi router.

I now have several routers, a Ridgid TS3650 Table Saw, Ridgid TP1300 Planer, Ridgid 15” Drill Press, 6”x48” Belt Sander, Delta Dust Collector, 6” Jointer, and more clamps that I can count, but never seem to have enough ;-)

More pictures later of the current progress.

Mike, this looks like a pretty good start on your shop. I am sure it won’t take you long to fill it up. I am looking forward to seeing more pictures when you get a chance to post them.
