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. For those who are interested here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXc5jk2Do1s
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...
At Monarch Metal, we frequently receive questions about how much weight our Monarch Z Clip system can support. For those of you that are not familiar with the product, Monarch Z Clips are similar to a french cleat and are used to mount panels, cabinets, signs, etc. Anyway, we recently had some third party independent testing performed by Qualtim, Inc. and we wanted to share the results to the extent they are helpful for you. The headline is that for a typical 4’ wide by 8’ hi...
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...
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.
Can’t believe how long this took but I finally had some time to finish the lower stud so that I can attach some French cleat rails once the MDF covers the entire section. Progress should be a bit quicker from here – no annoying angles to worry about now!
