Well, I eluded to building some steel cabinets like Jon in the earlier post, but I had a "situation" and needed to get something done quickly. My old shelf decided to depart the wall (on top of me, no less), so I sprung for some Gladiator cabinets that I bought off Amazon.com. They were fairly low-buck, and I got a break on shipping with Amazon Prime, and overall I am pleasantly surprised.

I mounted some hardwood 1x3s on the wall to the studs, then screwed these to the 1x3s. I used a floor jack to hold 'em up and level while I screwed them to the wall. They are steel, and I like the magnetic closing latch. I mounted a 18" flouro light under the recessed portion for a bench light, and we're back in biz.

Not US made, or home-built, but they solved a problem!

I like the diamond plate look of Gladiator. Plus it took you an afternoon. I've been at it for over a year...

All of my steel has gone off to powder coat. Now I I have to paint the walls and get ready for final assembly. It's slowly coming together. But the weather wa s beautiful today so I have the itch to start my project car...

Saw these pics online of Lateral\-G.net founder Scott Gulbranson's garage. I like the idea of the overhead soffit / storage cabinets with the lighting!
