Gerry, please do… as I said in my blog this was taken from similar plans in magazines, so I sure didn’t invent it. Works great, you can make holder for all kinds of things, from planes to tape, that hang on the cleats. I have two bookshelves in the works that will go up there soon after some more coats of poly.

Julie, the idea of the cleats is a great idea. I once had a shop that was about 1500 sq ft. I managed to run across six sheets of slat board and used this all around the shop to hang my tools. I don’t have the shop anymore or the slat board but the idea of cleats is a great alternative to hanging my tools and clamps. You move them around anywhere you want as you need them, great job.

You are WAY to neat. You’re gonna hurt yourself with all that stuff put away like that.
I just thought about making cabinet doors for my workshop with pallet wood. That’s
a pretty good idea. The boxes are already built out of particle board and hung. No
doors yet. I was going to make masonite doors for them, but I like the palletwood
idea better.
