It started as a garage door. I built a wall to help insulate the room a bit. Then I decided the wall would best serve me with a French Cleat system.
I thought about it a lot, researched a lot, and this is the system that works for me. Calling it a French Cleat is a bit of a misnomer. A true cleat allows the hanging piece to be simply placed on the wall. Mine is trapped top and bottom. The boards are all cut with a 45 degree top and bottom, trapping the hung piece (as seen in the fourth pic).
As it is, I can use pieces no bigger than 6 inches, but could use more than one for an object. In the future, if I want to use a longer piece, I would have to remove a board to get it in.
Now to build some storage to hang from it. Any suggestions on that is always appreciated.
Thanks for looking.
