Well, I took about a month off from working on the garage, i was starting to get burned out. I finished up the treads and risers last week. This week I finished up the baseboards:

Next, I'm going to apply the fire retardant to the wood and then stain:

I'm leaning toward the darker shade on this sample piece (darker is on top):

Nice shop! I've been in the process of getting approval for mine for waaay too long now, so I am living vicariously through you. Keep up the good work!

What are your thoughts on the flame retardant? Is this just for your own piece of mind or a code requirement? I was eyeballing that stuff for my own garage.

Just for peace of mind. I responded to a garage fire a few years ago and witnessed the devastation first-hand. That guy lost 4 cars, all his tools, bunch of guns and the garage itself, in less than an hour, started by a small spark while welding.

Fire retardant is a good idea. Remember what my neighbor went through the other day??? When you least expect it, expect it. Fire doesn't care, you know the deal.
If your car turns out half as nice as your garage is, you will definitely have a head turner for sure. Keep up the awesome job and thanks for sharing!!!!
You definitely have some skills.

I'm still at it. I applied the Flamex and stained the wood. I also got my Liftmaster 8500 installed.

A little update; I've been spending the past several days going through plastic bins trying to get stuff organized. Getting there:

HOLY SHIT! I'm jealous! NICE work! The pine wood work was a bit of work I know, but the looks in the end are worth it!
