DIY GARAGE SHELVES: LEARN TO ORGANIZE SPACE CORRECTLY
In order to build garage shelving yourself, you need to fulfill seven easy steps.
No certain dimensions are given, because a garage shelf needs to be customized in each separate case for your garage.
Follow all safety precautions when applying power tools.
1 – Take measurements of the garage wall area and purchase the needed quantity of 2×4 wooden beams.
2 – Basing of the required depth of your shelves, cut 12 pieces of wood for the middle sections.
3 Basing of the required height of your shelves cut 6 pieces of wooden beams for support legs.
(According to the pictures below, cut the wooden beams of needed length for the shelving surfaces).
4 – Fix the beams together using wood screws and adding the middle sections to the support legs.
5 – Organize 3 of the center support leg sections so that the height of each middle section was in one level with the others.
(Make sure that the shelving surfaces are evenly organized, because that is important for the construction to stay stable)
6 – Start assembling the shelves by screwing the shelf surfaces into the three support leg sections.
7 – Finish assembling the unit. Not put the shelves on their place, making sure they are reliable and solid.
(To provide additional security and stability of the garage shelves or garage cabinet, apply a safety or hold bracket to the garage wall)
