Default 1950s Craftsman Garage retro remodel

Hi, and welcome to the




Here is what I started with:



Here are some more recent pictures of the garage:












Some quick stats

Timeline - 2010-current
Budget - not enough
Focus: Woodworking shop (with light automotive focus) that pays homage to the philosophy of vintage Americana and 1930s-1960s American power tools, with an emphasis on Craftsman tools.
Thanks: The Lord for his provision, my sweet wife for all her patience and support, the folks in this thread who have consistently supported, challenged, and encouraged me. Other folks/entities that come to mind are the Old Woodworking Machines forum (www.owwm.org) for feeding the addiction, err...passion, especially our local garage/OWWM collective for their great camaraderie, the great folks at Wood Magazine and Epoxy Coat, and other garage owners here who never fail to amaze me. Thank you!

Nice collection of woodworking machinery, especially the Unisaw! I have the same jointer, although mine doesn't have the cool stand.

Thanks everyone for the comments!

I bit the bullet and just went out today and picked up a 5 gallon bucket of drywall primer and went to town.

Even after 2+ coats, I'm still noticing the indentation/lines where I have mud in-between the joints. It was completely flat and sanded before this went on.

Do I sand the drywall primer? Keep adding coats? A little of both?

The Atlas and the Craftsman radial saw were my first major woodworking purchases (last year).

Unfortunately the finish on the Atlas is chipping so I'll probably have to redo it at some point, but being that it was my first semi-restore, I'm okay with that...live and learn...and follow drying times to a T next time.

If you don't get 100% craftsman you will have a nice shop there anyway. I have a mix of all kinds,walker turner,powermatic,delta,craftsman and I like older as well. That planer is probably nicer than others you can find. It is agreat size for a shop, the one I have is way to large for a small shop. Its a 18 inch powermatic and the motor off to the side. It makes it wide, I like how your motor is under the planer. Keep up the good work and keep the pictures going.

Do I sand the drywall primer? Keep adding coats? A little of both?
Dap makes a pink product in a squeeze tube that is used for filling small indentations. Squeeze some on the tip of a putty knife, smear over the blemish. It will turn white when it is ready to sand. Hit it with a sanding block, then primer. Are you aware of the OWWM site?

Nice to see older machinery that has, obviously, received a lot of TLC down through the
years. Also says something about the quality of American brands back then. Gotta love
that Atlas drill-press. Haven't seen one of those in years!

Thruxton,

Do you ride? Is that your bike in your avatar?

Here is what I ride - 2001 Kawasaki W650. It will also have a home in the 50s garage

Yes, that is very cool stuff! Hopefully you can find some old signage to put in the garage along with the great old tools from yesteryear. Wondering how that "parking the cars in the garage" thing is going to work out...

Those Triumph-inspired Kawasakis are cool. I don't have one but vintage motorcycles are a true passion of mine.

Here's one from the stable-
