« Part 7: workbench fronts and top Part 8 of Garage Cabinets series no next part

Used one sheet of 1/2 in ply to build two sections of a French cleat system.

Then scrap ply for various hangers, none custom, but generic mix of holders, thought it would be quicker and take less thought. A snap of the under cabinet one, will install this week with the last cabinet.

Ran out of 1/4 in dowel, always something.

-- Trying, but lots to learn.....

Lots of inspiration here. I like it!
