I was looking around my garage and got sick of looking at the stuff hanging on the stud walls..So there were a few 1×6’s and 1×4’s lying around. I saw this cab on a site, so thought I’d build it. Folded up it’s 4’ wide and 3’ tall, 11” deep..The outter doors are 2’ each. Unfolded it measures 8’ wide..It was alot of fun..

Be careful. If you keep THAT up, you’ll find yourself wanting to put … a … CAR in that garage [shudders]


Nice job. Simple, yet elegant, and really functional.

Helps doesn’t it? You need to have a place for stuff. Now look above the cabinet… you’ve got more room for more stuff up there… stuff you don’t need often, and maybe need a ladder to access… but space is space… like, I loaned my wife some space… and I never got it back!

Great solution and use of some extra wood. Hope is is still serving you just as well today.
