Inspired by many LJs.

Hung on French Cleat

Top and bottom boards are greenish poplar.
The sides are yellowish poplar, along with all the blanks used for bit storage.
The middle shelves are alder.

Finished w/ 2 coats(so far) of Waterlox Original Sealer/Finish.

Update – re positioned a couple inches above my sheet good storage for easier access.
Added a couple small trays to hold stuff… could end up else ware if I need that shelf for bits.

Nice setup. I’m working to get my interior walls framed and sheathed, but I’ll use the french cleats as much as possible once I’ve got the C purlins covered.

i love the fact that you left extra room in there, a perfect excuse to go buy more router bits! Nice organizational project

Yes room to grow… also still plenty of room to drill more holes in existing blanks.
can change up storage or add more very easily… blanks are drilled out quickly on drill press.

This is a very nice and practical wall shelf and it is a great addition to your shop.
