Just showing off my french cleat system for the new shop. Going with a lot of festool stuff for the rebuild… and though the systainers are AWESOME for storage and transport, they are a little frustrating for in-shop use because the top-loading nature of them means that you can’t set things on top and recover counterspace when using them.
My solution is to create modular french cleat shelf-lets to hold systainers for the tools currently in use. Works well… I keep the current tool on one shelf and its associated accessories on a second. Shelves can be raised or lowered depending on systainer height and they can be moved to other locations if I need them. Gang up the shelves for extra counterspace, or stack them to get extra wall space.
Also made the plane rack, but no rocket science there. Works well and love the Lee Valley triplet. Oil and block planes go inside the triangle.
