We are trying to attack the garage organization task for the next few weeks, and my job is to make some wall cabinets with doors – slowly make the mess not looking so obvious and get more organized. First part of the garage make over is to create full size cabinets for one side of wall. The goal is to build cabinets in a simple way to serve the function, and meanwhile spend a little more effort on the doors so that they look good. It will not be the typical way to build cabinet with dado and rabbets, but only glue, nails and screws – in reality, the expectation should be “we are not build pianos”.

Each cabinet will be 32.5″(W) x 96″(H) x 15″(D). The cabinet are designed to be hang on the wall, that will provide some space under for easy cleaning, as well as keeping the storage away from concrete floor moisture.They will have four doors, except the one at left end – it will have an upper sliding door because the garage door rail is in the way of door opening. The cabinet carcass all have fixed shelves, and the number of the adjustable shelves will be optional. The whole project will be using 1/2″ plywood, with exception of the 5/8″ strips for mounting, the reasons for using thinner material is that they are easier to install with lighter weight by one person, and they should be as strong as using 3/4″ material if they are designed and installed correctly.The reason for the cabinet to be 32.5″ wide is because the length of all the shelves would be at 31.5″ (32.5″ – 2×1/2″), and thus we could use the available 8′ plywood length with trimming one edge and two cross cuts to yield a maximum usage of material.The depth of the cabinets is designed as 15″, thus the available 48″ wide plywood will yield panels, and the left over will be used as shelf reinforcement, this will also achieve the maximum material usage, leaving almost zero waste of the plywood except the trim off pieces and saw dust.The cabinets are going to be mounted side by side. With this configuration, the joints will just be simple glue, brad nails and counter sink screws. Panels will be painted, so the screws on side of the panels will either be filled with drywall compound and painted over, or covered by the other cabinet.They will be mounted to the wall with “French Cleat”, and secured on the bottom side as well.

If you feel that there is simply not enough storage spage on the sides of your garage, and that the shelving areas have already been exploited to the maximum, then the last resort measure is an overhead garage storage.

Step 10: CompletedShow All ItemsAfter paint all the doors (almost a full gallon of paint is used on this project), hang the doors back on, and add the door knobs to the preference – girls picked out the color of the knobs, which adds a very nice accent color to the blue-gray background.A simple jig for install door knobs, so that we don’t have to take the measurement on each door. Use a piece of off cut door rail, measure the location where the knob will be relative to the door corner (I would have two measurements from each edge the same in order to use this jig), drill pilot hole through. Align door corner to the jig, use the same drill bit to mark on the door, and drill the through hole for the knob.Install the knobs and project is completed.Most fun is coming from design something and seeing it from on the paper becomes a real piece of work. Now we have a wall of storage for sure will fill in quickly. Next job will be the other two side of the wall of the garage, and they will be upper and lower cabinets with counter top.
