brad moles garage build thread.

Hi Guys, been browsing this section for a long time inspired by all the awesome garage builds, waiting for the day when i can do one myself. Well I've been looking for my first house for over a year now but still haven't found the right one (probably being too picky about wanting the right plot to be able to build a garage) but good things come to those who wait i suppose. Anyways as i'm ready to move out when the right house comes along i thought id start on a build thread now while i'm prepping some of the stuff to go in the garage that i don't have yet

I will apologize now for the amount of in depth photos i'm going to post. I know everyone likes a good build thread and often miss out on the little details so i will try and post plenty pics to show what i'm doing in detail.

Anyways, to start with i got offered a toolbox off a friend and couldn't resist the offer, done a bit of research and they seem pretty decent, the box had barely been used and had just been sat gathering dust, Nothing special but it will do the job for now.











Ever since i got my eye on the snap on wooden tops you could get I've wanted one of them, so i set about making my own, i make chopping boards in my spare time at work so hey its just a bit chopping board at the end of the day.

Sorted out some off cuts to make it with





As you can see they are all different sizes and rough cut



Cut to length and planed to the same thickness



Arranged light to dark?



But i prefer random





Clamps and glue at the ready, lets go!



And all clamped up











I love the contrast in grains and colours you get, will look even better once sanded and oiled but you will have to wait for the updates as that's all I've done so far.

The next piece I've started is a few picture frames for some photos i bought, id normally prefer hard wood frames but for car/garage related photos i do like a simple black painted softwood frame, maybe i will change them in future but for now they are going to go black.

Softwood



Band sawn



Planed, rebated, cut to length and mitred



Biscuit jointed for more strength



And clamped up



And that's all folks, not a bad days work i think. stay tuned for some slow updates
