I've made two more shelves (one in my wife's garage, and two in mine), and I'm really starting to get the hang of it. In fact, with as many new houses as there are in my neighborhood, I'm thinking about going door to door and seeing if people want to buy my services to build custom shelves. Of course, doing it in this 3-digit heat doesn't sound like too much fun.
I also decided to try my hand at wall-mounted shelves. I'm using an old bookshelf that we didn't end up assembling after our move, and I like the way it's turning out. I can put regular shelves on the far side of my garage, but the near side has a wall that's nearly flush with the garage door opening, which means I don't have room for shelves to stick out at ground level. The solution is to hang the shelves above the height of my car.
Once this first one is done, I'll post more pictures.
