I'm going to do something terrible. I'm going to show you how bad my garage can get (and I even creep onto my husbands side, too)!
This is MY side of the garage:
Something had to be done.
I first turned my attention to this huge-massive table the previous owners left. At first I was excited to have a large work table but after a while I realized it took up too much space and didn't provide much storage space. I had my miter saw on it but large boards would hit into the wall and it was a magnet for junk to pile on. (Take note of that cardboard box full of old drawer slides on the shelf - they've been bumming around for a few years and I finally put them to use!)
I was excited to take the table apart and run the boards through my jointer/planer to make something else out of them.
I saw this system that Ana White made and I knew it was what I needed!
I'm pleased to say that I used all the wood from the old table (except the MDF table top) for my new miter stand and rolling carts.
