When came time to hang my new Breakfront Hand Tool Cabinet I designed a jig to easily and precisely locate where to secure the French Cleats into both the wall and the back of the cabinets.
Photo 1 : Secure a French Cleat scrap onto a strip as long as your cabinet height.
Photo 2 : Secure another French Cleat scrap one cleat away from the bottom.
Photo 3 : Secure the upper French Cleat on the wall and hang the jig from.
Photo 4 : Use the lower end of the jig to locate the lower French Cleat.
Photo 5 : Secure the lower French Cleat to all studs.
Photo 6 : The same jig, however reversed, will align the complementary cleats onto the back of the cabinets.
Thanks for looking and I hope it may help some day !
