Took some pics of my recent projects.
I built some custom cabinets in my garage. I was tired of seeing things stored on shelves.
The two tall cabinets are 2'W X 8'T X 12" deep. The two upper cabinets are 41"W X 30"T X 12" deep. They had a killer deal on some cabinet grade plywood at Home Depot for $28 a sheet so I jumped on it. The materials were 5 sheets 3/4"x4x8 cabinet grade plywood, 1 sheet 1/2" MDF (for drawers), 2 sheets Luan (for backing), 24 Euro full overlay hinges, knobs, screws, glue, primer, paint, and drawer slides. All in all I spent about $350 on the cabinet materials.
I originally planned on doing drawers for the bottom sections of the tall cabinets but unfortunately I wasn't happy with the results since I couldn't get full extension slides in 12". I scrapped the drawer fronts and just put doors on the bottom section. Now unfortunately my drawers will not open because the door is in the way...oh well I will fix them later
I also built two 4x8 storage platforms to go above the garage door. Only about $60 in materials.
Next step for the garage is to put down the expoxy floor coating I have sitting in the house and paint the walls (haven't decided on a color yet.)
I also built a fence in my backyard last weekend for the dogs and to "define" my backyard so I can finish the landscaping back there this spring/summer.
The fence is 7' X 58' X 50' X 37' X 4'. I put in one 5' gate and one 6' gate. Spent about $1k in materials, food/drinks for help, and tool rental on the fence. Put in about 30 hours labor on it for my backyard and my nextdoor neighbor's backyard. Not bad considering my neighbor down the street spent $1700 for his fence w/ install. rented a two man auger for the holes and ended up having to rent a jackhammer for two of the holes (lots of big rocks under the soil).
