first off, thanks to Paul Pomerleau for posting his cleat wall as it was the inspiration behind this project. i had a 4×8 sheet of pegboard in this area that i wasn’t 100% happy with. i like this system better because i’m able to hang my planes and clamps with my hand tools. it also frees up more wall space, since i can turn the combo squares and saws sideways.

Very nice, I like the handplane tills particularly.

I was totally ignorant regarding the french cleat system until about 2 years ago. Now I see it popping up more often. Your storage system looks awesome, way cleaner looking than pegboard. Way to go!!

Neat idea. The “big” saws on the left are in their own place I see.
