French cleat
with a Danish accent…

First of all I need to tell those who did not see it; ‘I’m back in the shop’!
Made a little blog with a shop tour: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/39554
Sorry put the wrong link first…

This is the simple French cleat I put up on all the tool walls in the work shop.
I feel it makes a order and of course it makes it so much more easy to move stuff around and the move was also quite a but more easy like this.

Pictures:
1. The hand tools shop wall.
2. French cleat principle.
3. Cabinet with cleat on the back.
4. A lamp holder.
5. Board on cleat.
6. The machine room wall.


This one is for the smile.
My shop is not long enough for long boards in the table saw, so i have put it on wheels and place it in the little entrance when cutting long boards.


It then ends up in the kitchen…


Three pieces from one divider batten, these are the cheapest wood we can buy here.
(38×57mm). In this way the cleat are so cheap, that there are no excuse.

Now back in the shop – yabadabadooooo.


Best thoughts,
Mads

Mafe, you have shavings growing on your arms! Seems like a good start in the new shop.

Fixed my favorite pipe today, the mouth piece was broken, got a new and carved it to fit, so now peace is pack.

Glad things are coming back together Mads. ‘yabadabadooooo” Seems to have a bit of American Yogi Bear accent too ;-))

Great shop Mafe! I’m jealous of all the hand tools you have, and have made.

We do what we must do to accomplish the mission, Mads!

In my shop the table saw has the rear legs on blocks, so material exiting the saw misses the chop saw fence, and the rite legs on blocks so material on the saw passes over the lathe bed. Not pretty but it works.

What happened to the pipe? Did it get damage during the move?

Great idea using the cleats especially whn first setting up again. It;s so much easier to switch things around. Good luck with the new shop.
