Floating Garage Shelf

I purchased a new home a few months ago, and had no where to store my junk. Being the cheapskate that I am, I didn't want to pay hundreds of dollars for pre-made shelves. These new homes have small garages. If I still wanted to park my car in the garage, a pre-made, store-bought shelf wasn't going to cut it. So I bought my 1st ever circular saw (P507) and built a floating shelf in my garage.
The scariest part of the project was finding the studs in the ceiling to hang the chains. I purposely drilled an extra hole on each side of the stud to make sure I found the center.
It came out really nice for being the first time I've ever used a circular saw. It's even nice enough that my wife includes the Garage when she gives our family and friends a tour of the house. She lets them know that I built it myself. I like hearing the "oohs", and "ahhs." I've already started building more of the same shelves on the other side of the garage.
