No miter saw needed. Use the bracket in the first pic, HD and Lowes sell shelving material in precut lengths. Or just use a handsaw and a square and cut material i the lengths you need.

For a garage I would recommend cdx plywood - cheap and strong, not that pretty though. Another option is look on Craigslist in the free section, you may come across folks discarding wood/pallets/plywood. I built my friend a workshop using reclaimed pallets this past year

Winds, have you thought of using the wire shelving like is for a closet? Lowe's had the wire shelving and the brackets to mount them.

Good idea. I will look on Craigslist in the free section. Never thought of that. It doesn't have to be pretty. It's the darned garage. You should see the shape it's in now. That garage has been almost totally ignored for a good 10 years. I finally have the time to work on it, along with other house projects I never had time for when I worked full time.

Yes, I have looked at the wire shelving. I didn't see that it came in the lengths I wanted and I wanted something small items can't fall through.

Why under my username it says supporting member and under some usernames it says senoir member. What is the difference?

Well...
A junior member is a free member and also a noob.
A senior member is a free member who's been around a bit.
A supporting member is a member who's paid.

Senior members did not pay the $15 to become a supporting member. After posting so many posts (I'm not sure what that number is) a junior member becomes a senior member and will remain that way unless he/she chooses to become a Supporting Member.

I was thinking something like this. Yes, the studs are exposed. I don't mean to whine but you guys kicked me in the butt without even knowing it. I need to toughen up.

maybe this will help.

i forgot to add a 4-inch long block of 2 x 4 underneath the support in order to account for the thickness of the horizontal shelf support.

IMPORTANT: USE 3-INCH SCREWS!!! tip for easy installation, drill some pilot holes into your shelf support system (on a diagonal) and start the screws BEFORE you try and hang it on the wall stud. DO NOT DRILL PILOT HOLES INTO WALL STUD!

MAKE SURE SCREWS ARE TIGHTENED ALL THE WAY........NO GAP BETWEEN SHELVING SUPPORT AND WALL STUD.

screw 1 and 3 together (if you angle 3 just so, you won't have to cut anything off. just leave enough room for your screws to bite into the under piece). then add 2 to the wall stud, put 4 screws into it. 2 @ top and 2 @ bottom. now move the "1 and 3" partial triangle over to the stud, and attach 1 directly to the stud, and attach 3 to the 4-inch block.

do the others the same way (dependin on shelf length), and your shelf support system is complete. now all you have to do is add the "decking (4.)." space it like you want it, and then screw it down to the horizontal support (yellow 1), and add a couple of pieces underneath (5.) in order to keep it from bowing in between shelf supports.
