Custom Garage Shelving
Convert store-bought storage racks with plywood and pegboard panels, to create the garage storage system of your dreams.
When it comes time to organize the garage, you certainly have no shortage of options. One choice is the many available “garage storage systems.” These look great and add a lot of storage space, but they also quickly subtract a lot of money from your pocket book. Another option is to build your own shelving system. You won’t spend nearly as much money, but you’ll have to invest a lot of time. Luckily, there is a third option: Create a hybrid system by starting with ready-to-assemble steel shelves and then creating simple enclosures to turn them into custom cabinets. That’s how we created this storage system. It starts with three sets of steel shelves that we picked up at a local home center for less than $200. Then, we wrapped the shelves with pegboard panels and added plywood doors. We even built in a workbench. The result is a great-looking storage and work center.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
