When I first moved into this house and started collecting tools, I put up a peg board because I thought that’s all there was.
Since I found LumberJocks, I saw that there were other organizing systems available that you can make yourself.
I really liked the modular French Cleat system.
I took down the peg board, cut some strips of 3/4” plywood with a 45 degree angle, screwed them to the studs and plugged the holes with leftover walnut, made a bunch of hangers and voila.
I love the fact that as I hang more tools, I can slide things around to fit better or as I discover that I use a certain tool more than others I can place it at a better location.
And you can see that you can put a lot more tools on a cleat system than a peg board.
I even have my 12”x12”x9” hardwood scrap bin hanging from it.
I love this system and once again, I never would have known of this type, if not for the great people at LumberJocks.
Thanks for looking.
