Like so many of you, my small shop (small, single car garage) has limited storage space. The first thing I had done was to hang some extra large shelves (which you van see in use at the top of pic #2). Then I had built a basic cabinet for supplies (not shown). This became so cluttered (hence it not being pictured) that I had to do something.
So I built a swing away shelving unit. I believe this to be pretty unique. I had a dickens of a time deciding how to keep it in the up position, so I called on my best “out-of-the-box thinker”...my wife. The third and fourth picture was what she came up with. A lot better than the rope and pulley contraption that was going through my head.
It’s basic, it’s ugly, and it’s perfect for me!
