Weekend build: Garage workshop

In this post I'll share everything I learn while making a garage shelving unit that also incorporates a workbench on wheels, to allow using the complete garage as a workshop, and at the same time leaving space for the car when stored.

We recently moved to a new house, and as usual there are plenty projects to tackle. But to be able to succeed in most of them, you need a nice place to work! Because if it, I decided to add some shelving with an integrated workbench.

3D Model of the build

I think the outcome was nice, so I want to share that with you in case you are in need for something similar. I do recommend this build particularly if you have really little extra space in the garage as it is my case.

List of materials

  • 2 Plywood 1/2" x 4' x 8'
  • 10 2" x 2" x 8'
  • 6 2" x 4" x 8'
  • 4 3" wheel (4" total height) casters with break
  • 1 pegboard 4' x 4'
  • 2 1" x 2" X 8' (used as pegboard frame)

The first part we'll make is the workbench, so we can use it later to build the shelves.

I used this draw to cut the parts, particularly useful for the table top and shelve. And allows you to see that both plywood sheets will be cut in half on the longer side, and one of those halfs will be cut in the middle on its shorter side.
