Garage - part 2

Now that I've got the floor mostly taken care of (as seen in this post), storage and a workspace are the next steps.

Any ideas for a workbench and storage units, aside from the super-expensive garageworks stuff that hangs on the wall? I'd like to get something like the dual-cabinet workbench pictured here:

I also need a toolbox and tools, I'll probably go with Crafstman on all that stuff. No more wrenching in my brother's garage with his huge selection of Matco tools from his Master ASE days...

That stuff is awsome if it were not that expensive. Man just the strip panels are out there. Im not too impressed with the quality of the cabinets though. There are other similar systems and again the cabinets seem cheap. But I do like the versatility.

ever contemplate building your own bench and cabinets? My ol' man did way back and I like his stuff way more than what you can buy in a store. He's not a master carpenter either, so anyone with a little skill and patience can make some good quality stuff. You could find a book online or at the home improvement stores for plans and instructions too. Just a thought


Ask me how to get a free kick in the teeth!

No kidding Kev.....I built my own work bench to fit my needs. Put in a small shelving unit on top and drawers on the side. The only downside of too many drawers is that you will stuff em and they will become catch alls.

As far as upper cabinets you can usually find FREE kitchen cabinets at demo sites etc. but just be sure to reinforce the bottoms.
