That's a pretty sweet garage! Looks like some serious work will get done in there.

It's been over a 2 1/2 year process just to get to where I am am now, and I am still a bit embarrassed about my mess. But, well over a year ago I embarked on a project to fabricate my cabinets. I designed a metal framework that I will add wood panels, shelves and doors. It was my goal to practice and improve my welding skills. I am proud to state that I have completed all of the metal fabrication. My cabinets will have an 18' deep upper shelf for storing parts and bins. Now I have to decide if I should powder coat or paint...




Wow, those look great! I really like the idea of fabbing up your own frames to fit your space. I think I might do the same thing, rather than adding additional pre-made stuff that just doesn't fit right. Plus, YOU made it in the USA... and the materials probably were not any more expensive than a set of store bought overseas cabinets.

Are you going to skin them with wood or steel?

Very nice work, and inspiring! Thanks for sharing, keep us posted!

Just added a "new " toolbox to the garage. This is my father-in-law's old Matco and Snap-On combination set. It served him many years as a diesel truck mechanic and a farmer, then it did a stint in our shop, now it gets to go on light duty use in the home garage!

Those are good quality boxes. They don't make them like they used too. Now you have to fill them.

Nice, man! When I had that same set up. I loaded up one box with basic, most often used stuff and the other with mostly specialty tools. Worked great for me. I like that Fritz box.
