Still pretty far from done but you get the idea. Picked up a wi-fi range extender tonight to give me some more reliable Pandora reception. 32" Flat screen should be here tomorrow. I'm thinking of going with a steel top over the 2 sheets of 3/4" MDF as well.





It's definitely come a long way!

No microwave, the house is only about 30 feet away. Fridge is for beers and sodas when the fellas and I are out smoking cigars on Thursday night boys night.

There maybe new and more foo-foo shops, but yours has done the biggest transformation....I think most people would have destroyed and started over. I think shops that are remodel so the most charater and skill. Plus, you get to say "I did that" instead "I paid for that." For motorcycles it perfect.



Also, for your counter-top, I am using garage floor epoxy over some OSB (MDF will work also) it cheaper then stainless and just as hard. I am steeling it from here:

What about a work table? I dug up a number of plans across the web, probably will build one for my ATV this summer. Usually have enough scrap wood around to do these kinds of projects. Your back will thank you.

Plans for one made from two sheets of plywood that breaks down flat when you're not using it since space is at a premium.

Bury a lift in the floor. Keeps it out of the way, and quick to raise a bike up.

You really should consider a lift. I have one in my 10'X20' along with 3 bikes and wouldnt have it any other way! Looking great by the way!!

Bikes are certainly a big part of my life, and having a nice place to wrench on them makes it so much more enjoyable. You should be proud of the progress that you've made on yours What a difference!

You must feel like a cycle surgeon in there now!

Good luck finishing it off!

GORGEOUS!!! Love it. I would have that pretty white paint not so white in not so long lol. But it sure does help keep it bright and lit.
