I spent most of the weekend putting in new garage shelving. I needed more organized space for my garden tools, car parts, and various tools. I did have an existing shelving unit in the garage when we moved in, …but I took it down for more room because it was floor based. However the wood it was made of was awesome; 5 layer thick ply-wood that is used in sub-flooring. So I kept it in the side shed, for future use.
This weekend I got the wood out, ripped it to the desire length, and installed it on my garage walls. I also added extra support for heavy loads by installing 12″ wooden supports. These shelves should be able to handle weights above 250-300 pounds; easy.
All-in-all, it took about 12 hours to complete, even if you include the paint. I just used a cheap white primer – I wanted the shelves to match the drywall, and make the garage uniform.
