We're updating our workshop at home and decided to buy some garage storage cabinets. I liked the diamond plate finish and toyed with the New Age Pro series and the New Age Bold series. We went with the Bold series and we weren't disappointed. The garage workshop looks like a totally different room with these new cabinets. I was a little concerned that the lighter gauge metal of the Bold series and slightly smaller depth (18" vs. 24") would make a difference but it doesn't. These are sturdy, well built, well finished products and Home Depot had the best price of anywhere, including the membership stores where we also could have bought them.
Each cabinet comes fully assembled and unpacking and assembly is a straightforward process using the simple and clear instructions provided. About half a day will give you enough time to set up and install this set. The main work is to fit the support feet to the base cabinets. With the doors and shelf removed, I found that the wall cabinets were light enough for me to hold in place and mount myself without an extra pair of hands (which was a pleasant surprise although an extra pair of hands for these is helpful). Once the cabinets are leveled using simple blade screwdriver adjusters that are accessible from the inside of the cabinets, you just screw them to the wall studs (in our case we were mounting to wood) using the supplied 2 1/2" lag bolts and washers.
The three complaints I had about assembly were that a couple of the feet plates were 'bent' despite being well packaged and the packaging being undamaged (poor quality control), and the supplied 2 1/2" mounting screws are weak. Despite drilling pilot holes, one lag bolt bent on the way in and another had the head shear off, so you might want to get a dozen or so decent 2 1/2" Size 12 or 14 lag bolts to install with. Finally when it came to mounting the wooden worktop, the holes in the top of the base cabinets were pre-drilled in a position where I couldn't get a straight angle with the drill/driver inside the drawer units which resulted in the driver bit slipping on the Phillips heads when the screws went in at an angle (even with a pilot hole pre drilled). The manufacturer should adjust the position of the worktop mounting holes or you could just drill the holes in a more accessible position while trying to mount the worktop.
Once assembled there is literally acres of storage space. We were able to get our paint cans, motor oils and fluids, tools, gardening stuff, cleaning stuff and all manner of other odds and ends stored away much more efficiently than the conventional open shelves we tore out. And with the doors closed, it all disappears into a very clean and sleek looking diamond plate finish that looks a lot more pricey than it is.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by jd51 Great product and Home Depot's price was significantly lower than any other source I found.
Product is solidly built and looks great. The only assembly required is bolting on the adjustable feet which was not difficult.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LIQUIX Excellent Value!
Cabinets were very very well packed with lots of protection from damage in shipping. Doors were easy to remove and I pulled out all of the cabinets from the larger cabinet.
Installation was easy with the help of a friend for the upper cabinets. Since I was installing on a block wall, I used Tapcons and the entire unit is very strong and sturdy.
Yes, this metal is thinner than the Pro line, but honestly this will last a very long time in my garage. It looks much more expensive than it was and I am very happy with the purchase.
Everything in this set is fully welded, so no assembly was required. The bamboo top is beautiful and a very nice touch. The lower cabinets have holes on the top so you can screw the bamboo top in securely.
As you can see from my (messy) picture, I created my own set with everything that came and I used a small roll around stool I purchased. I then used the other large cabinet and smaller lower cabinet on the other side of the garage for even more storage.
This is very well designed and a great addition to my garage.
