    I used a lot of these designs for inspiration for making my own garage shelf. I made mine really deep (3ft) so I wanted sliding shelves to get to stuff at the back more easily. It turned out great, and is holding a lot of stuff now. I posted all the details on my blog at http://www.justmeasuringup.com/blog/creating-more-garage-storage
