Video: French Cleat Drill Charging Station

183 days ago 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

Video: French Cleat Blade Storage Rack

192 days ago by JSB | 9 comments »

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. ...

French Cleat Square Holder

195 days ago by JSB | 3 comments »

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/

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.

The headline is that for a typical 4’ wide by 8’ hi...

New State, New Shop #12: Up-grading the Dust Collection

593 days ago by DrPuk2U | 4 comments »

When I first set up my shop, I bought a Delta 50-760 DC. It works well enough, but when jointing and planing a lot of wood the plastic bag fills up fairly rapidly and it is a PAIN to take off, empty and then re-install. Once you get the hang of it, the process is easier but it’s never easy and it almost inevitably ends up with a bunch of saw dust all over. So I decide to invest in a Oneida Super Dust Deputy. By the time I got it, I had realized that the fact that the Delta was mob...

French Cleat

749 days ago by Litrenta | 6 comments »

Started adding a french cleat system to keep my tiny little space organized. I had tons of scrap pieces of plywood and dowels hanging around from previous projects so was able to make good use of it. I absolutely love this setup and have had a lot of fun building out all the attachments for the wall.
