As part of my shop re-do, I wanted a way to organize all of my air nailers and commonly used drills/drivers. I came up with this simple design to hang on the wall. I also decided to try a French cleat system for the first time. The whole unit is made of 1/2” Birch plywood. I tried out the iron-on edge banding for a first time as well. Very neat stuff and was pretty easy to work with. I only did the outer edge as it was only a test and I didn’t want to waste all of it on a project that I know will get a bit beat up popping nailers/drills in and out all of the time.

For the French cleat, I couldn’t inset it on the back, since the back of the cabinet was flush with the sides, so I had to add a filler strip at the bottom to keep the gap consistent. I plan to make a small matching cabinet that will hang just to the left of this unit.

Looks like it will serve the need well . I can’t do any organizational projects for the shop til I get a Shop of my own but I have seen a lot here that I will save for that time.

Have your say...
