Garage Storage Units


This project consists of four separate shelving / storage units for the back wall of the garage. The two base units are identical, while the left upper unit features slatwall storage, mostly for sports equipment, and the right upper unit features adjustable shelving. Each unit is made from 1/2 and 3/4 S1S AC plywood, with one sheet of 1/2 birch plywood for the custom made slats. Thin sawn poplar was ripped into 3/4 strips to cover the exposed plywood edges before painting. The bare plywood was primed with Zinsser 1-2-3 primer and finished with gray SW urethane trim paint, which dries quickly to a durable finish. Brass plated shelf standards and clips were used for all the adjustable shelves, eliminating the need to drill about a brazilian shelf pin holes.
