My garage door is always open so I like to keep it neat. The shelves were really my first project that was completely of my own design. I wanted an arts and crafts look hence all of the chamfered edges. The stereo shelf started as design model for a fireplace mantel. The cabinets were hand-me-downs from a family member who remolded his kitchen. My wife keeps threatening to put my recliner out there. There’s beer in fridge, so it just might be ok.

“Garage Mahal” is appropriate. Someone should move in there to appreciate your products, or perhaps you should consider making it into a showroom for a new commercial enterprise. Seriously, nice pieces.

Exquisite workmanship. The garage now looks very decent.

Yep to clean! Love the miters on the end of the shelfs. They look good, beer is good I’ll be over.

I’m laughing at the name, Garage Mahal, because I took some ribbing on another forum when I bought a large shed and had them truck it to my yard and set it. They called it Shed Mahal.

But I just have to make two observations on the Garage Mahal.
First, really nice work.
Second, – Hey! show us your tools! You obviously do nice work, so I, for one, would like to see where you do it.

To repeat myself because I feel I must, NICE WORK.

I see water bottles on the counter and there’s beer in the fridge. Hmmm a man who knows how to prioritize. LOL

Great work.
