Shop Remodel #27: Oo La La Deux

12-28-2015 01:34 AM by bearkatwood | 6 comments »

Today I piddly farted around and put the catches into the door frames. They are friction catches and needed to be mortised in. All turned out well there. They hold the doors shut really well and look nice. I had to take a break from the carving as it was killing my shoulders, not used to that hard work :) So I decided to get French..No! Not like that you sicko!French cleats. I milled up some slats to inset into the door frames with a lip similar to the back of the cabinet...

Shop Remodel #13: Oo La La!

12-07-2015 12:43 AM by bearkatwood | 8 comments »

la grande construction, Oo La La!Today was very French. French cleat that is. I set the cabinet to the wall using french cleats and made a set for the inside of the cabinet. There will probably be some that hang down from the shelf below, but the cleats should take care of most tools for the back wall. A series of custom hangars will be made to facilitate hanging tools. This way as things change I can rearrange the cabinet. I experimented by making a flat plate to hang someth...

French Cleat Nail Gun Cabinet

11-20-2015 12:46 AM by davidcolley | 2 comments »

This has been a project on my To Do list for some time. Since I’m between big projects and happen to be walking around a few larger pieces of plywood I figured I’d knock this out. As previously noted I’m a CAD designer (we used to call ourselves draftsman) by trade and use some pretty expensive software at work – but for home consumption I use SketchUp Make (the free version) and it does all I need to in order to design my woodworking projects. The picture abo...

French Cleat System

05-16-2015 01:56 PM by Ken Dowswell | 3 comments »

French Cleat At my workbench I have always had a peg board which is somewhat difficult to hang some items. Again researching the internet I came across the French Cleat System. Using the 45 degree basics and customizing the hanger for each tool, it has by far better options for tool placement. I’m still early in it but have been able to assemble a cleat for items as they become apparent. The next items are small boxes for screws and such made from 1/4” material (ply or ha...

Shop Update #5: 2014 Wrap up, Thank you, and 2015 goals

12-31-2014 07:30 PM by Chris McDowell | 2 comments »

2014 was a good year for woodworking and for YouTube. I was able to complete several projects (I haven’t posted everything on Lumberjocks) and was able to grow my subscriber count to over 800 on YouTube. We purchased a scroll saw for my wife after she expressed an interest in learning how to use one and making some things that we can possibly sell for some extra cash. One of my big goals in 2015 is to finish my shop organization by adding the rest of the french cleats that I want ...

French Cleat Screw Storage / Screw Caddy

10-04-2014 12:14 PM by Chris McDowell | 2 comments »

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...

Video: French Cleat Drill Charging Station

02-25-2014 02:15 PM by JSB | 5 comments »

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
