Great job. That is flexibility! I only have two stips in my shop and some day, I mean some day, I will add more of these in my shop.

Thanks for the reminder!

Nice, sometimes projects like this are the hardest to get started but pay off the most in the long run.

I learned something, its called a French cleat! I wonder why? It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Glad you did!

Looks great, especially nice job on the small cabinet. Have been meaning to add a french cleat system to my shop for some time now.
