Garage WindowsGarage door windows
I wanted to make some windows for the garage. So I cut them out of the sheet metal, but the holes looked pretty ugly. Then I made these wooden frames! Looking better... Still needs something. The windows are mostly there to provide access to the Hoist points that I installed.

Those are 4" long eye bolts, welded shut, and with a flange welded on anchored by two additional 10" long bolts. Should have a working strength around one ton. Of course, when the garage door is closed, they are pretty useless, being right next to the door. And when it's open, they are blocked. Hence the windows!

The Plexiglas slides out of the way, and the hoist point is right there!
