Since I live in France, it only makes sense for me to have a organization wall that using French Cleats. I ripped down some pine sub-flooring, cut one of the edges at a 45, and glued/screwed them to a section of 1/2 plywood. Exterior water-based poly was added to both the back and front before it went up on my clay-block garage shop wall. For my first French Cleat accessory: I had three small cut-off sections left from a picture shelf wall I did in my office that I tacked together to hold my Jack, #4 smoother, and a couple of block planes. I keep the rest of my planes in a chest, but I use these constantly and wanted to have them in reach. I will post more as I add or maybe put it all into a “this is my shop” post
