Hammer hanger
for the French cleat

This was actually the first project in the new shop, the stick came after, but was just finished first.

This post is from the blog: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/39701

Pictures:
1. The hammer hanger in use.
2. Wood are left over ash from the new floor.
3. Many sticks (Madts).
4. Table saw for shoulders.
5. Mortises by hand.
6. No more looking for the hammer.

The song:

Hope this little blog can inspire others; to keep their tools in order and right at hand.


Best thoughts,
Mads

I like your idea of displaying your hammers for easy access and use. I have over 30 hammers and mallets and wish I had the wall space to keep them at hand. Maybe it’s time to get rid of a few and do something similar.Thanks for showing this Mads.

I’m going to submit a formal complaint about your project photography. I think it’s unfair to LumberJocks everywhere. You could turn 2×4’s into toothpicks and make it look like art. :)

Don’t stop!

What a great selection of hammers, and now a nice place to keep them. I can’t stop laughing about that song either! Thanks for the inspiration and the laugh!

Hi,
Glen, lol, yes for sure, I am all out…
Alexandr, ;-))))
mpmitche, double happy here if I also made you laugh.
john, thanks man, love to play unfair… when like that. – Even I here had two out of focus (used the old camera and something went wrong). Can’t stop.
doubled, you just need to make it long enough then… smiles.
grizz, had a wonderful time making these little joints, reminded me of architect school where I made models.
Handtooler, yes we never know when we need to send out some signals.
Thanks for the comments,
Mads

The shop is starting to take on a nice look with you working in it and I like that French cleat system but this is ok for tools but your pipes are in great danger and deserve a better location .

Just when I start to think we don’t have that many … whatevers, an actual count reveals the truth! Another organization project added to “The List”! I think I can do this. Thanks for the inspiration Mads!
