In this video, This Old House general contractor Tom Silva creates wall-hung storage for tools and supplies. Steps: 1. Use a circular saw to crosscut a 4×8-foot sheet of ¾-inch A-C plywood down to 5 feet long. 2. Rip the ¾-inch plywood to width on a table saw to form the cabinet’s top, bottom, sides and center divider. 3. Adjust the table saw blade and rip fence to cut a rabbet into the rear edge of the two sides of the cabinet. 4. Install a stacking dado blade in the table saw and cut shallow grooves in the cabinet sides and center divider for metal shelf standards. 5. Screw a shelf standard into each groove cut by the dado blade. 6. Use a pocket-hole jig to bore pocket-screw holes into the ends of the cabinet’s top and bottom. 7. Fasten the top and bottom to the sides with 2-inch pocket screws. 8. Place the center divider between the top and bottom and hold in it place with a bar clamp. Secure the divider with 2-inch screws. 9. Cut the cabinet back from ½-inch plywood. 10. Lay the cabinet face down. Apply carpenter’s glue to the rabbets in the rear of the cabinet, and also to the edge of the top, bottom and center divider. 11. Set the ½-inch plywood back into place and tack it with a pneumatic pin nailer and 1-inch pin. Secure the back with 1 ⅝-inch screws. 12. Use a miter saw to crosscut 1×3 pine to length; make two vertical stiles and two horizontal rails for each cabinet door. 13. Then, use the table saw to cut grooves into the edges of the stiles and rails to accept the ¼-inch perforated hardboard panel. 14. Adjust the table saw blade and rip fence, and use a miter gauge to cut a tenon into both ends of each rail. 15. Use the table saw to cut two door panels from ¼-inch perforated hardboard. 16. Spread glue onto the tenons and then clamp two rails to one stile. Tack together each corner joint with a pin nailer and ⅝-inch pins. 17. Slide the door panel into the grooves cut in the doorframe, then glue and nail on the remaining rail. Don’t apply glue to the door panel. 18. Repeat Steps 16 and 17 to assemble the second door. 19. Attach the doors to the cabinet with continuous piano hinges. 20. Fasten one pull handle to each door. 21. Cut and install four ¾-inch plywood shelves. 22. Mount the cabinet to the wall, making sure you screw securely into the wall studs. See Products and Services from This Video

Height: In most garages, a 4-ft. cabinet against the ceiling leaves about 5 ft. between cabinet bottoms and the garage floor. If you park long vehicles in the garage or have a shallow garage, you may need to use the space under the cabinets for the fronts of vehicles. If so, measure the height of the hood to make sure you’ll have clearance when choosing cabinet heights. Also consider the heights of items you may want to store beneath the cabinets. Motorcycles, bikes, storage cabinets and wheeled tools are ideal candidates for that space. Two other heights that efficiently use plywood are 32 in. (six panels per sheet) and 24 in. (eight panels per sheet). Keep in mind that protruding cabinets invite head bumps. So make sure walking patterns don’t pass too close to corners.

Each cabinet will be 32.5″(W) x 96″(H) x 15″(D). The cabinet are designed to be hang on the wall, that will provide some space under for easy cleaning, as well as keeping the storage away from concrete floor moisture.They will have four doors, except the one at left end – it will have an upper sliding door because the garage door rail is in the way of door opening. The cabinet carcass all have fixed shelves, and the number of the adjustable shelves will be optional. The whole project will be using 1/2″ plywood, with exception of the 5/8″ strips for mounting, the reasons for using thinner material is that they are easier to install with lighter weight by one person, and they should be as strong as using 3/4″ material if they are designed and installed correctly.The reason for the cabinet to be 32.5″ wide is because the length of all the shelves would be at 31.5″ (32.5″ – 2×1/2″), and thus we could use the available 8′ plywood length with trimming one edge and two cross cuts to yield a maximum usage of material.The depth of the cabinets is designed as 15″, thus the available 48″ wide plywood will yield panels, and the left over will be used as shelf reinforcement, this will also achieve the maximum material usage, leaving almost zero waste of the plywood except the trim off pieces and saw dust.The cabinets are going to be mounted side by side. With this configuration, the joints will just be simple glue, brad nails and counter sink screws. Panels will be painted, so the screws on side of the panels will either be filled with drywall compound and painted over, or covered by the other cabinet.They will be mounted to the wall with “French Cleat”, and secured on the bottom side as well.

The hinges come in at 10 packs and there is a mounting template printed on the paper in the box. I first thought was “well, that won’t last 28 installation” so I made a hard board template using the paper one as a guide. Cutting a same size 5mm hard board, and glued / nailed a piece of 1/2″ plywood strip to the back of it to be the fence that simulate the cabinet edge / door edge. Use a knife to score a center line on the hard board, glue the template onto the hard board, align the center lines on template to the CL on hard board, also align both edges of the cabinet / door to the fence, use awl to punch out all the holes, and the jig will look like the one in the picture. In order to see the center line marks on the cabinet and door, a 5/16″ hole is drilled at the center line by the fence.To mount the hinge to the cabinet, (6th picture) measure the preferred center line location of the hinge on the cabinet (mine is 3 7/8″ and 43 7/8″ from the top for the upper doors, and same dimention from the bottom for the lower doors), align the CL on the templete to the mark on the cabinet, and use awl to puch out two hole locations, and those are the screw locations.To mount the hinge on the door, first mark up 4″ and 44″ from on end of the door, this will leave a 1/4″ gap between upper and lower doors. Repeat the same procedure to mark screw location and hinge recessed hole, use 1 3/8″ fostner bit to drill the recessed hole at 1/2″ deep. This is the main reason adding a strip of plywood at the door front – adding more material for recessed holes, not just for the look :)Try them on before paint the doors.
