Not your basic fine furniture project here but a fun one for the 2 year old grand son’s birthday coming soon. He loves playing with the small Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars. The walls are 1/2 inch Baltic Birch. The door frames are Birch strips. The guard-rail around the curved part of the ramp is vinyl siding but everything else is wood of some sort. The building has a thin aluminum “false floor” so when cars are parked in the garage and a string is pulled up (seen a little in photo 3 and 4) the aluminum (hinged at the front) lifts up and all the cars in the garage roll out (right over the grates in the door way). All the signs were printed on 4×6 glossy photo paper then cut out and applied with spray on adhesive. After all paint and signs were finished it got about 4 coats of poly from the air-brush to protect it all. Have already started a Fire Station (Fire-Police-EMS all in one) to go with the garage. Might have to cut some “road” from strips of laminate flooring and paint them gray too.
