So currently I’m out of town on a business trip, so I thought I start this blog.
In our hour, the previous owner had made a built-in “workbench” and storage closet in the garage, made out of 1×4s 2×4s OSB and chipboard (stamped as flooring underlayment). I tried to make it work for about 5 years, but did not like it. It had pegboard on the, but that was mounted on 1×4 s so the 3 holes around the edge were useless. There was a metal work vice (mounted on the corner) that was basically in the way. It had 3 drawers, but they were very heavy, and the runners on the bottom drawer were rusted and stuck all the time. The whole thing sat on the floor, and being wood it got wet, and that is why the drawer runner rusted.
I got a bigger car and we got a second fridge in the garage. With that impetus I disassembled the built-in. Assembly was mostly screws and finish nails. I saved about 80% of the materials, pitching any thing that was moldy or ruined.
First thing I did after that was build a B.O.S.S (Big Old Storage Shelf) from some of the 1×4 s and OSB sheets. It’s not pretty but it holds a bunch of little things in the garage that we “need” to keep. It is about 4’ by 15’.
