Yes D, exactly what I was thinking, just like the hinged door for underneath then it is still usable storage but you'll be able to take some sweet wide angle shots and not see tools, and storage bins! With as big and as detailed as this is you might as well go all out brother.

I've been thinking along these lines too. A lot of pics out in the rocks, it's really hard to keep from getting the house in the shots. I was thinking something real flat & cheap & relativly stiff for outside use... that rules out shower curtain. trouble with plywood is you need to get the good stuff to not have wood grain in your sky.

What if you used paneling? You could paint the "inside" of the paneling and you could always strenghten it with 2x4s and with it being so light it could be easily taken in and out pending on weather.

For you a sheet could work, easy to take in and out when needed and you can hang anywhere if needed.

That could work as well but for me would require more storage space, running out of that. LOL

Update time.
In between cleaning the garage, cutting the lawn, washing and waxing the cars and cleaning the deck.....I had some time to spend in the shop.

Lift is complete as far as I need for photos and vehicle storage.






Next item was adding some lighting. These will eventually have LED's in them but for now are non functional.
First up was the grinder light.


Next are the 8' shop lights. I found a perfect scale chain to hang them from a retractable key chain.





That's all for now. Not much left to add. Need to start the weathering process next I think.

Thanks for looking.

More detail time.

Every shop needs an engine assembly stand.

Started with the raw material. 5/16" key stock and misc tube.


I have a book on 1:1 shop equipment, cut all to scale length.




Having the book is great, it's like a model instruction sheet. LOL
Parts staged and welded/brazed together painted and complete. It works like the 1:1, rotates and locks into position.





Just need to add the casters. Next is a shop press.

Thanks for looking.

Next bit of detail added. I need to thank Joe for this idea, I never would have thought about it if it wasn't for his garage build.

Every shop with a lift needs one of these to keep the mess down.

Started with an empty pill bottle, some scrap styrene, some "hose", RC plane tail wheels and a few old RC bushings.


Start assembly




Paint


Final after slight weathering.



Fully height adjustable


How it looks in "use".



Once again, thanks to everyone for looking. Comments always welcomed.

Ed, had to make it better, bigger and just more awesome.
I had to justify the move and scrap of the other.

Another update.

Made a nice little steel rack to store the project materials in.




Next up is a welding curtain


And a little video of one of the guys doing some welding.


All for now. More to come.

Nice work Darin, you are the master of detail... the pill bottle is... well... it doesn't look like a pill bottle anymore.
