What boy doesn’t like a garage for his cars. My grandsons certainly did. Ended up having to make 3 of them. one in flat pack form so son-in-law could put together and do the Dad thing… Just made out of 9mm MDf and painted. I made the decals myself on the computer and printed out on photo paper.

Very nicely done Grandpa, I’m sure they will remember forever where they came from and the hours of fun each provided.

Great job with the decals and paint. The Holden Racing Team is a nice touch. ;-)

That’s great – I bea the grand kids like it a lot. I remember playing with my hotwheels and matchbox cars for hours.

Superb work on the garage, it looks great and ready for many hours of play; top decals/stickers.
I’ve made about 14 similar in my time, even 2 for little girls in girly colours [looked all wrong]; I use 18mm ply for the walls and 9mm ply for the top & base as I’ve found that little ones also tend to want to stand & jump on them….keep up the good work, Cheers, crowie
