Grab the sanded plywood and fill its voids with wood filler. Once the filler has dried, use sandpaper to smooth the treated surfaces before cutting the plywood. Measure the available space in the garage to build a storage tower with the right dimensions. Make sure to cut three equally-sized pieces for the sides and back, and four to five equally-sized pieces for the top, bottom, and middle shelves.

3. Paint the Pieces Prior to Assembly

Save time by painting or staining the different pieces prior to assembly. When the paint dries, start putting the parts together. First, nail or screw the middle shelves, top, and bottom to the back piece. Then affix both sides of the tower.

4. Prepare The Garage

Drilling a Wall

Clear a wall and drill the holes to which the holding brackets will be attached. Once the brackets are mounted, screw the storage tower in place and test its sturdiness. If it’s wobbly, add a second bracket.

Building a garage storage tower isn’t extremely difficult and it’s a fun project to execute with family and friends. It doesn’t take too much and it’s an inexpensive organizational solution suitable for garages of all sizes.

The Trailer of No Time to Die Teases James Bond’s New Struggles

The Trailer of No Time to Die Teases James Bond’s New StrugglesJames Bond has spent nearly sixty years on the big screen thwarting intricate, seemingly insurmountable assassination attempts from an assortment of ostentatiously megalomaniacal psychopaths. However, pandemic-era delays have certainly taken their toll, as they have dragged No Time to Die, the franchise’s long-awaited 25th official film, into over a year of release date retreats, leaving it to finally face the music in October. Interestingly, the film’s new trailer appears to thematically match the film’s possible box office struggle, as our out-of-retirement MI6 agent appears befuddled in the face of an invisible, intangibly acting worldwide menace.

James Bond and Madeleine Swann

James Bond and Madeleine Swann (Daniel Craig and Emilia Clarke) Daniel Craig’s long-awaited exit from the Bond franchise appears ever-closer with the opening moments of the latest No Time to Die trailer, which retrospectively recalls Agent 007’s first moments with a newly-issued license to kill in 2006’s Casino Royale before quickly recounting the events of the three subsequent sequels, most notably the foreboding line from 2015’s Spectre, in which Christ appears to be dying. Similarly, the trailer’s appearance of an imprisoned Blofeld feels foreboding, as he indicates that Bond’s sweetheart, Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), is hiding a secret that would prove to be “the death of you.”

Perhaps summing Bond’s standing in the film, Ralph Fiennes’s returning M gives the aged, newly reinstated MI6 agent an unfavorable briefing, remarking, “We used to be able to get into a room with the adversary. And they’re now merely floating in the ether.” Indeed, the film appears to play on Bond’s growing helplessness in the face of a hidden, pervasive threat; a threat personified in this film by Rami Malek’s main antagonist, Lyutsifer Safin, an eccentric, facially scarred scourge who brings unprecedented intelligence and an unconventional skill set to this cinematic spectacle. Additionally, Safin appears to view himself through an unusually heroic prism, drawing personal similarities to Bond—apparently even when it comes to his erotic affections for the somewhat dubious Madeleine.

What Can Fans See From The Trailer?

Shot from the No Time to Die trailer The trailer, on the other hand, appears to communicate the sense of Bond as an Austin Powers-esque spy frozen in time—a notion that arguably reflects changing cultural attitudes. This, it appears, will be communicated not by his adversaries, but by his newest ally, Nomi (Lashana Lynch), one of MI6’s newly-minted “00” agents who happened to receive the retired Bonds’ 007 designations. As a result, what appears to be the film’s central relationship will center on the recently reintroduced Bond’s interactions with the agency’s new hotness, potentially setting up a generational conflict, even though Lynch, at 33, is only two years younger than Seydoux, who plays the now-53-year-old actor’s on-screen love interest. However, the teaser appears to hint at a larger watershed moment, similar to how GoldenEye felt upon its 1995 release when Pierce Brosnan’s debut as 007 originally felt out of place in a post-Cold War world.

It will surely be interesting to see how James Bond’s No Time to Die performs at the box office when it opens in the United States on Oct. 8.
