Wow, i just got outta the marine corps and 3 months ago i bought my first house with the money i saved. As far as the cabinets go ,keep asking and someone will help you out with them.The guys on here are full of good ideas. Just pick up some how too books at lowes or homer depot, you can find all kinds of projects in those type of books.
Otherwise, be sure to crawl through the garage gallery in this forum - man, some of the guys in there have great ideas - heck, look at dustym's work above.
For the plain gloss radiused edge design - which I think works best in a garage environment - it would take an age to achieve the standard of finish available on mass produced items. Author Notes: Thanks so much for watching my newest video on building a 20' long garage storage shelving unit! I recommend a good self tapping screw so you don't have to predrill any holes (as I do in the video). It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. This was an easy project that just me and my 14 year old were able to complete in one afternoon. I have been living in my new home for the last 13 months and I still had a big mess in my garage from the move (can any one relate to this?).
Ana, I know from reading some of your other plans that you're a big fan of the Kreg jig and pocket hole screws (as am I). Just a guess, but probably because this is a utilitarian design and the looks don't matter much.
Expert advice from Bob Vila, the most trusted name in home improvement, home remodeling, home repair, and DIY. Designed for building small aircraft, this work table is built from easy-to-find materials and features simple yet rigid construction. This workbench from The Family Handyman perfectly suits those who work in a garage or basement (any space that is shared with other family activities). If you are looking for a mobile or small-space solution—or you want a secondary work surface to complement an existing bench—consider this idea from Woodsmith: a rolling tool cabinet outfitted with a solid top. A garage has become an essential addition to our residence as it is not only used to park our vehicles, but also to be used as a personal workshop and storage room. Before building the garage, you must have already acquired the permits needed for construction and a plan to follow. For the foundation, you might require some professional help if you do not have the equipments or skills to do it yourself. It is important to be aware of proper wall framing basics because the walls of your small house will bear the load from the roof down to the foundation and act as the protector against the elements of changing weather for many years to come.
The framing basics of your wall include the sill plate on the bottom, the wall studs (which are the vertical beams), and the top sill plate (which is the beam running across the top). My favorite method for finding the square of a framed wall is to measure from corner to corner.

If you have the chance to pick out your lumber at the supply store then jump at the chance.
Wall framing basics also includes the type of structural wall sheathing you will use to strengthen the walls, add substance to the insulation that you will be using, and provide a base for applying the house siding material. Standard exterior structural sheathing is usually made of plywood, oriented strand board (OSB), exterior gypsum board, or waferboard.
Be sure to have more than one person on hand during wall construction and sheathing because it often requires one or two people to hold things in place while another performs the attaching by nailing everything down.

My garage is very important to me, as i will be spending most of my time in there working on various projects.
Most home improvement centers will have a way to help you with your plans, either on computer or with books on hand. I would say before you go out and start buying a bunch of wood and stuff to make cabinets try getting them for FREE . A machine generated flat, fair surface is especially important cosmetically, when using a gloss finish.
So it was time to put some plan into action to organize it before I was kicked out of the house ;-) and looking around for simple but sturdy solutions to build I stumbled upon this website and its wonderful array of plans for all skill levels so I went ahead bought the wood and started building and I couldn't be any happier with the results I got.
The main benefit of pocket holes is to hide joints so that furniture looks more polished and "professional", but that's not really a concern here. Please consider updating your browser to the latest version of Internet Explorer or Google Chrome.
Though it’s able to withstand a banging, the table is still lightweight and compact enough to be portable. The setup includes a stable surface for hobby or repair projects, a built-in pegboard for storage, a shop light, plus a recessed shelf that allows for seating.
A small vise and a power strip are included here, along with magnetic and pegboard tool storage, not to mention the storage provided by the cabinet drawers. This indoor shelter is often attached to the house or located in the residential compound area with electric operated remote-control doors. Get a few friends to help you with this task as you might need someone to hold on to the wall pieces when you are nailing them tougher. Prefabricated trusses are better for novice builders as it is all custom or ready made according to the measurements that you have provided. By joining our free community you will have access to post topics, communicate privately with other members (PM), respond to polls, upload content and access many other special features. I want to build a wooden cabinet system with a decent sized workbench area, but me and my buddies will be spending alot of time in there so i want it to look pretty cool.

But if you want inovation, just wait for replys here or look at old threads for some of the most interesting building ideas ever. I picked up all the cabinets in these pictures I am linking to for FREE by simply placing a wanted add on Craigslist and picking them up .
Thanks Ana for taking the time to creating and maintaining this website for all of us newbie woodworkers and also big thanks to the community for their participation!
The base is made of affordable dimensional lumber, with joints that are both glued and bolted, meaning this bench is not only a thrifty option, but a sturdy one, indeed. The top uses two sheets of laminated MDF, and the plan incorporates handy features like bench dog holes and a woodworking vise. Next, order the raw materials that you will need for first part of the construction project. You will have to provide the accurate measurements and information on the slopes, length of overhang, load weight, the size of your beams and rafters.
I built 2 large cabinets 4'x6' x11" and 2 wall cabinets (forgot size) for less than $100.00. While it would probably be easier to get the cabinets for free from craigslist, i really want to build them myself, dont know why, i just think it would be fun. If you are planning to do it yourself, abide by the rules and have a local inspector around to ensure that you are doing things correctly. Confirm with your supplier to see if they can deliver the prefabricated trusses to your place. If you have any problems with the registration process or your account login, please contact contact us. Anyone know where i can get some plans to build some really good looking cabinets with materials i can buy at home depot?
I have never worked with wood in my life by the way but im pretty handy and im sure i can pick it up. They're temporary for this room, but once I build my small shed, they'll be resized for that. It would be best to hire a professional worker at this stage because they know best about the construction rules.
I just ordered a full kit of Epoxy-coat thats going down this weekend, ive already mounted a plasma tv on the wall, and i embedded a nice surround sound system in the walls. I was just gonna get all the wood cut to length at home depot when i bought it, since i havent invested in any tools yet. The leftover materials can be used to build up a barbecue place or a fireplace for you and your family. If i can get some plans ill start building the cabinets immediatly, and ill put up pictures shortly.
