If you’re like me, I hate things laying on the garage floor. Not only does sawdust, grass, bugs and who knows what else collects around your things I have to move it every time I want to clean the shop, I clean a lot too! lol

This is a very simple system, I doubled up scrap 1/2” Baltic Birch and 5/8” dowels for my hooks. I also made 2 different types of shelving units. This was my first time using the french cleats system for storage, works GREAT!!

Hope you enjoy!!!

Super neat and organized. If I can ever find the walls in my garage, maybe I’ll follow in your footsteps ;).

Garages have floors… and walls??? I’m lucky mine still has cars in it… It didn’t for about 2 years…

Actually, high on my “to do” list is a total garage redo. I want to build nice cabinets, and redo the whole thing. Anyone have any great ideas for garage cabinets?

french cleats are awesome, and getting stuff off the floor is more awesome.
