I am about to redo part of my work shop. I currently have a pegboard system for hanging my tools. Ive seen alot of things showing that some people like using French Cleat systems. Has anyone used that type of system and recommend French Cleats? Anybody like one of the other?
All of my measuring and squaring tools were spread out throughout the shop. I wanted them all in one place, so I made this. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IOwoCwpg54
As to be expected, do enough woodworking and you will need various sizes of screws for all the different projects you work on. Then you end up with extra boxes of screws. I had all of mine just stacked together in a small bin. The bin was overflowing and it was just a pain to find a place to store the bin. It constantly got moved around. So, I made a small shelving unit to hold all the different screw boxes. It’s based on one I saw April Wilkerson make. You can see a link to her vide...
Hello everyone. Here’s my latest and hopefully last for a little while addition to my French cleat wall. I may do something else for the wall in the future but I doubt it will be a video. This was a useful project that anyone can benefit from. Have more drills? Make it wider. Customize it the way you want. For those who are interested here is a link to the video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkiqzUPB9LQ And here is a link to the plans:http://jayscustomcreations.com/?p=4323
Hello everyone. After another productive Saturday in the shop I came up with this French cleat saw blade storage option. It can be modified to your dimensions and needs as always. It features two rows of blade storage with 6 partitions each. The dividers can be removed for larger blades such as 1/2” or 3/4” bandsaw blades. You could even reduce the spacing on one of them for more table saw blades. For added storage options on the outside you could use dowels, screws, or nails. ...
I’m really digging this french cleat setup. I wish I would have made these when I first started up my shop. In my continuing organization of the shop I made a french cleat square holder. It holds 7 of my most used squares. I have a lot of speed squares because of my day job. Anyway, for those who are interested I have a picture filled post and a downloadable PDF containing dimensioned diagrams here:http://jayscustomcreations.com/2014/02/how-to-make-a-french-cleat-square-holder/
Hello lumberjocks. I’m in the process of getting more organized with the use of a French cleat system in my shop. My latest addition is a finishing supply rack. It holds 32 cans of spray paint, 15 quart size cans, and some more finishing supplies. The benefit is that you can always see what you have at first glance.

Hammer hangerfor the French cleat Ok; some of you were after me, this for letting my first project in the new shop be a stick…The truth actually is that I was working on this also, but the stick was done first.This is so much more! This is 12 sticks!!!Dam you, I’m a bad ass, 12 sticks, glue and bamboo pins. So as many times before we start with a sketch.Btw, this blog is a mess… So if you want to make one, start guessing, you will need it.No measures, I just did as I w...
Made this tool chest to hold some of my hand tools and marking tools. This was very simple and made from 1 sheet of 3/4” plywood. Check out the video here. As always, please share and subscribe!
Hello all LumberJocks! As promised in my Gloat to End all Gloats post, I’m starting a blog series dedicated to discovering, moving in, and setting up the dedicated shop we got as part of our recent home purchase. I plan to put several types of posts under this one series, which will range from discovering the new tools to setting up the shop and making it my own. I’d like to start by letting y’all know we closed on the house on Friday afternoon, so we have spent all weekend clean...
