Hand Made Garage Cabinets and Storage

Needed a new cabinet system and some storage. So, I built the cabinets and workbench from plywood and 2×6’. The doors are 1×4 with pocket screws and yes… those are wrenches drilled out to be handles. The big storage cabinets have screw drivers as handles. While doing all the new workshop stuff, decided to paint the garage wall while I was at it. Little bit of flame artwork never hurts! Hope everyone likes it.

I always like different. All of my shop handles are on the different side also. I bought one sheet of that diamond plate at the box store and choked on the price. Nice build. Is that a flat screen….....................

Nice work, I like the handle idea gonna borrow that one. Now about this TV. Do you do woodworking or just say you do to the wife and watch movies all the time????? (laughing)

It´s too pretty to be used. I guess you are going to make a chair and just watch to that TV. Where did you hide the Scotch?

OOps… the chair (bench) is already done, (just now I saw your previous post) so it is all planned…

Finally, a shop use that doesn’t exceed the capabilities of Harbor Freight wrenches!

very cool use of the diamond plate.

My instant reaction was “wow”. You’ve got a flair for design. I couldn’t keep a nice TV in a spot like that, though. I’d zap it with a nail or something for sure. I hope I haven’t jinxed you by saying so.

The flat screen lcd TV has worked out awesome! Nothing like having New Yankee Workshop on the tube, with Norm talking about some project while doing your own project. And I can hook up the tv to a laptop so I can check project plans online while in the garage. The diamond plate was around $100 total from metal supermarkets, cut to size! The carpet was a auction find for $10.00. So, destroying it really doesn’t bother me. And, well… it’s fun! What can I say?

Have your say...
