Garage Shelves

Moving into a new home usually requires some storage / organization.  I’ve used this design for garage shelves before, previously in a 3-car garage.  This was in my much smaller 1-car garage. First project was done in 2012.  After the top shelf was added, light weight boxes were built and hung.  Finally doors were added to the cabinets to keep dust out.

Lessons Learned:

  • It is hard to hold 3/4 plywood on a wall and screw it in by yourself.  Using a 2×4 ledge to hold the plywood not only helps but also allows you a stronger base for cabinets.
  • Also learned to gauge the proper screw depth.
