I made this out of a leftover piece of Advantech flooring I had – but you could just as easily make it out of plywood. Simple 2×4’s cut on a miter saw at 45 degree angles make brackets. I used a kreg jig with some long screws to drill pocket holes to attach to the studs.
I put hooks every 4 inches or so underneath the shelf. They’re ALL OVER the bottom. This gives me two layers of space to hang with lots of space in between to get at the stuff in the back. Finally got all these cords and tools off of my pegboard and workbench. It’s high enough off the ground to hang brooms, 4 foot levels. It’s sturdy enough to hold quite a bit up on top.
Lip on the side is perfect for my growing collection of pipe clamps (the ones you see I got free from a neighbor!).
Simple, ugly but great garage storage.
