We have three kids that play 1-2 sports at a time. All of their gear was either piled on their closet floors, or in the trunk of the car. We were constantly scrambling to find pads and shoes, jerseys and pom-poms on Sat mornings. After looking on-line for garage lockers, I realized it was going to cost close to $500 to buy what I wanted (although it wouldn't fit quite right in the space I had in the garage). I decided to take out my Ryobi tools and combined with a quick trip to the home store, built exactly what we needed in a form that matches the rest of the cabinets in the garage.
