How did you make that board and what did you use to fix it to the wall? I have no power tools and will have to rely on borrowing some from a mate.
Buy power tools.
Buy more hammers.
Sheet of ply probably bought from BandQ and cut to size by them in their big machine.
3 coats of paint.
Fixed to wall with screws and used cups to make it look nice.
For a reason I don’t know why I also cut down some copper pipe as spacers to space it off the wall a bit.
Lots of little nails for hanging stuff on.
A quicker and possibly cheaper way is to buy a kit that comes with a peg board with holes in and hooks you can move about.Posted 4 years ago
I thought this way looked neater. Again not sure why when you see the rest of the mess in the garage ;0)
So today I will be purchasing a corded SDS drill, a couple of vertical bike hooks, measuring the garage and devising a layout that I think will work, and then ordering some peg board. Let me know your recommendations please!
I think the missus’ roadie single speed can be consigned to a wall bracket for now.
Pretty excited about how this is going to turn out. 🙂Posted 4 years agoGaryLakeMember
painting floor needs to be done at a warm time of year also which is why i didnt do it when i moved in – february.
I’m getting a new place in Feb and I know if I don’t paint it before I move in, it won’t get done. If I go ahead anyway, will I die? What about if I burn a shit load of dinosaurs and have a halogen heater on in there while it’s being done/drying?Posted 4 years agotreaclespongeMember
Cant help but notice not many people seem to have much in the way of security on the actual bikes in any of those pictures. No locks or even floor security rings etc. Based on reading the theft threads the impression is more security than bikes but none of these appear to have any at all!Posted 4 years ago
im a tool box fan. keeps the tools clean.
if you use a board – your tools get manky just being there if you use the garage for anything other than just tinkering with bikes.
i have a set of allen keys mounted on a magnetic rack on the wall – they get covered in all sorts of dust from grinding/filing/drilling.
stuff in the box stays lovely and clean.Posted 4 years ago
