Default Garage Storage

So I have been trying to decide what I want to do in the garage at the new house. Got the floor epoxy painted. Came out pretty good, I am vey happy with it. In the past I have just built a work bench and cabinets for storage and tools. I would like to do something a little nicer in this garage. Where do most of you get your cabinets and work benches, need something durable to hold tools that will last. Need both under counter cabinets, wall cabinets, and full height. I will probably build a work bench top out of some kind of wood. Any thoughts, or pictures of what you have done would be awesome.

I will say one thing. Sears had the gladiator cabinets deeply discounted to the point they were 1/2 price. The wall mounted ones are well made and welded. No issues with 6 I put in. Much nicer than the sams club/bjs cabinets.

I went with a mix of cabinets and 8" shelves. Had a few solid doors from a remodel that I painted with grey floor paint. Cameo out very nice and very affordable. If pm kent is no object then the sky is the limit.

I second www.garagejournal.com. great site!
I made my own cabinets, but I also have a cabinet shop..
Look around for what you like- the best I saw for a homebuilt setup that was cost-effective, sturdy and clean was the HF 41" base cabinets as the bench drawers with home made melamine counters on them and Home Depot wall cabinets.
