Cut 17.5" off the end of each of the 8 foot long boards for the shelf decking to make these. Since conditions are different from garage to garage this article just describe a very specific situation (mine).
As the result of your detailed design you should know exactly how much wood, how many screws and of what dimensions and how many joist hangers to buy.
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.

You could use metal but you need to do a specific design that will involve welding or some screw based solution for keeping everything in one piece. Keep in mind that you can optimize the use of wood you buy (thus saving some money and the Earth in the process) by sometimes making some slight changes to the dimensions to better fit with the predefined wood sizes at the hardware store.
Since every situation is slightly different I will explain what I did and you will have to adapt to your case. I estimate the time needed to build one shelf at about 4 hours but this can vary with your specific situation. 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.
Of course all that junk is way less valuable than the cars sitting all day in the sun (or snow if you live in Canada). Draw the shelf and think about all the details like how you are going to assemble the whole thing. If you calculate your dimensions carefully you can even minimize the number of cuts you have to made. 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!
They're temporary for this room, but once I build my small shed, they'll be resized for that.
