^5,000th post^...epic thread
I loved your video Jack, well done. Had not seen your ceiling table that is over your car....do you have more details on how that was accomplished?

Great video, Jack. Your vision of what a work space should mean resonated with me. When I bought a property with a 1200 sq. ft detached garage, it was with the same thoughts I had in making it the place to work on projects. No way is mine as nice or well thought out as yours, but your video described my intent perfectly. Thanks for sharing.

Jack, that Vid explained a LOT! Your philosophy and approach, and some of the logic behind the 12 ga, Garage. Great production and presentation!

I think that vid has the potential to inspire many more to make headway for their own shop, and I include myself in that number!

In fact, I think it has application for almost any work area, whether its car and fab, arts and crafts in a room in your house, or something as basic as the kitchen!

Thanks for making and posting it!

I too enjoyed the video, very well done and thanks for the quick tour!

Made me stop this morning and rethink the direction my garage is heading. I'm starting to think more about an island like yours and I like how the table saw tucks under the island.

Hi Jack,

Your new video is great! You have obviously put a lot of thought into your garage and it shows! Your execution is fantastic too.

Thanks!

Here's another video -- this one required much less work. It's a no-cost bench for my daughter's kindergarten class. They wanted one to go with the playhouse I brought over there.

Nice bench! I think you deserved the thumbs up.

And green to match the . . . playhouse. Yeah, the playhouse.

Hi Jack,

You were kind enough to let me and a couple other friends visit the famous 12-Gauge Garage while we were over from Australia for RR V. I was impressed then, but your video demonstrates beautifully just how clever your set up is. My personal favourite, along with the lift, is the welding table. I love the way all the clamps you could ever need are there at the ready as the table unfolds. Very well thought out and executed.

Cheers, John

Hi Jack! Long time no talk.

I apologize for asking an off-the-current-topic question but I've searched and can't find something I THINK I know you posted long ago. 230 pages is a lot to search.

I remember your deck is made from Ipe but for the life of me I can't remember what finish you used? Some kind of Penta type finish. I need to know this product for the bed wood in my '55 Chevy truck. Are you still happy with your deck finish? How frequently does it require you to re-apply?

Now back to the thread before I rudely interrupted. Again, sorry.

HI Jack: This is my first time here. I've been looking through a lot of the thread to find out how the little blue air conditioner worked. I can't locate that discussion. I'm trying to create my own art space in our 2 car garage in FL. It gets super hot, and beyond insulating the metal door, and getting some type of movable fan, I'm stuck. We have HOA rules here, so nothing can show on the outside of the building. The design concepts are very restricting. So, how did/does the AC work out for you?

And thanks for your great, grammatically correct writing. You made my day as a retired English teacher.

Hey, Dan. My deck is Cumaru, which is one of Ipe's cousins. I love the wood, but the rosewood oil finish I used, Penofin, is something I'm not thrilled with. To look really good, I'd have to re-apply the stuff every 6 months. I've read about MANY people who are thrilled with Penofin, and many consider it the top of the mountain, when it comes to these hardwood finishes. But then there is a small minority (like me) who get the wood turning gray/flat/ugly too soon. After some additional Internet research, I'm about to try two competitors: Defy and TWP, whose product names escape me now. But they should be easy to find. It might not be helpful for you, with your timeframe, but I'll report back with my results.

Thanks! I'll try to watch my grammar in this reply. I briefly used a portable air conditioning unit, which I rigged with an intake and an exit through the back wall. It worked all right -- but the frustrating thing for me was needing to anticipate when I'd be in the garage and then remembering to turn it on in advance. In the end, I took it out. My plan is to put in a whole-garage (and adjoining office) system sometime in the future.

I know I'm bringing up an old topic, sorry.
But, Jack, how did you secure the fabric around the tubing on your awning?
How's has it held up over the years?

Thanks, take care
Bill

Here are three pictures of the completed shade cover. While building it, I kept reassuring my wife that if she didn't like it, it would be no problem to just take it all down. Looking at it from above, it's, uh, well... pretty darn big.

But so far, she likes it.

That was the first time I tried securing shade fabric to a frame, and my method was pretty simple. I bought a bunch of 100 'report clips,' the spring-steel clamps you use to hold a thick stack of paper together. I painted them to match the fabric, and counted on the massive redundancy of a clip every 12" or so to resist the force of wind acting on the fabric. It might be because of the aerodynamic placement of the shade right along the adjoining roof line, but the shade structure has been up for seven years now, with no maintenance, and it's still doing fine. In this picture, you can see the clips when I first placed them. I subsequently removed the little handles, leaving just the spring steel.



I used this kind of clip:



On the subsequent shade structures I made, I did something I felt would be more robust. (I figured I'd gotten away with it once; it might not keep working out so well.) The frame above my the deck is 1-1/4" square tubing. I first use hand clamps to position the fabric, and then put a length of 1/2" square tubing over that, sandwiching the fabric between them -- and drilling holes for little stainless-steel screws to compress the two pieces together. Then (and I think this is key), I run a bead of roofing adhesive, so that the edge of the fabric (which I've trimmed off) is 'globbed up' with enough adhesive that it would be just about impossible to pull the fabric through the gap.
