After hanging my French Cleat wall and using it for a week or so, I started building all sort of other holders and organizers: ones for squares, chisel rolls, Mallets, cords, apron hooks, safety gear, aprons, saw horses, clamps, Japanese saws, boat paddles, etc… I ringed the garage with a single cleat about 6′ up for all sorts of diabolical organization plans, then hung two more above the lathe so that I would have a place to suspend my lathe chisel rack that is currently in progress and for a spot light that shines down on projects as they are turning.

Thanks for the ideas. I use the french Kleats too and I still have lots of space to play with.

I’m curious about the holder for the Japanese saws. What’s preventing them from sliding down and out?

Ray,

There have been a couple of other friction holders on LJ. Some use dowels and wedges and some use rubber balls in the place of dowels. I turned the dowels from a broken baseball bat and the design origionally came from a saw holder that I saw in a one time girlfriend’s father’s shop. Works great.

Matt,

Thanks. Been a while since I’ve seen them referenced and I obviously purged them from memory.
