Storage system frees space for car in garage
Garages are not just for cars anymore. In fact, they are becoming less for cars and more for storage.
The U.S. Department of Energy recently reported there are more than 65 million garages in this country. Of homes with a two-car garage, 20 percent did not park any car in the garage while 32 percent parked one vehicle.
Helping you put that car in the garage while maintaining storage room is storeWALL, a heavy-duty, modular storage panel system.
Patented in 1996, the system’s panels accommodate a variety of hooks, baskets and shelves, as well as numerous standard accessories.
Each panel is 15 inches tall and available in 4-foot or 8-foot lengths. They’re easy to maneuver, weigh just 8.5 pounds and 17 pounds, respectively, and are resistant to water, mildew and mold. They are available in three solid colors and two natural wood grains.
The system can be customized with the help of 5-inch shelves that can be cut with any shop saw for special needs or drilled to make tool storage holes.
Also available are SnapFit end caps, which pop in at the ends of the shelf to make a tray for small items.

Innovative cutting boards ‘knot’ average
J.K. Adams offers an innovative collection of Knot Cutting Boards that are hip, fun and a little trendy.
Handcrafted from Vermont maple, they are tied up in a knot with colorful silicone bands for hanging and just plain fun.
The boards are available in two sizes: 10 by 7 inches and 13 by 10 inches. Bands are available in plum, kiwi and aqua.
The bands make perfect hangers; if the boards are stored like books on a shelf, the bands stabilize them and keep the maple off damp counters. They are also removable and dishwasher safe.
Since keeping items separate while cutting is important for health safety, collect more than one. Try using plum for meats, kiwi for fruits and veggies, and aqua for breads and cheeses.
The small board retails for $20, while the larger one is $24.
