I posted this over on Lumberjocks as well but it fits here quite nicely too.
My garage needed some organizing…

So since I had a 4 day weekend a couple of weeks ago and a pile of scrap wood that I got from Craigslist and Freecycle (I love those groups) I decided to see what I could come up with.
First for the camping storage area.IMG_0289 I have a lot of gear and as you can see from the above picture the current setup was rather hard to get to.
This is what I came up with…

It is all made out of 2×4 and chipboard, I Kreg Joined all the joints which made building it in the space easier. Basically I did all the prep work before moved a single thing out of the corner then just moved all the gear to the other side of the garage, built the unit and loaded it up.

The other area was Lawn and Garden mostly as well as some car maintenance items…
The project photo shows my solution and the below one are indivdual areas. The work surface is painted plywood and the rest of the shelves are all chipboard.. I agian Kreg Joined the entire thing together. The pegboard that was originally on the wall was recycled into the project. The shelves below the owrk surface are sized to accomadate the kitty litter containers that are filled with potting soils, and such.

The whole project took me just a little longer then 4 days. Most certainly a big help. Now the wife wants me to get to work on the new pantry for the front of the garage and I want to build a toy area for my daughter to store stuff. Sure those projects will show up here eventually.

Nice work CTL. It shows that you can get good results for little cost and some effort. The storage spaces should hold you for a long time. Now the tough part might be to actually put things back in their storage spaces when you are done using them!
