Just finished my bench about a week ago, and noticed the wall look naked – well, had to do something about that. I wanted some cubbies and enough hooks to hang everything.
Trickiest part was that I had no hardware to hang it with. So I ended up cutting my own keyholes (sorry, forgot to take a picture of that) that the screws sit into. Very happy with the way it all turned out. Thanks for looking!

Nice shelf, I might steal this design if you don’t mind?

Great project, compliments. If you could explain the system of fixing to the wall, it will be pleasing a drawing, excuse my incompetence. Thank you.

mariva57 – super simple (haha, I say that after I thought about it for 20min) – sorry about the pic quality, not really sure why it’s so bad. I’m sure there’s a special bit out there for this, but I didn’t have one. So I used one bit (the bigger one) and made a hole. Then I changed bits, put a smaller one in, and routed the slot for the screw to sit into. Then I left the screws a little proud, and voila, it worked. I routed four keyholes, considering there would probably be a fair bit of weight.

It looks great and very functional. Like the design especially the open shelves. It goes well with your cool bench. Great job!

Nice job, I might make a modified version of this design.

Have your say...
