I have read many of the other threads regarding French Cleat but I just had a little question that I haven’t been able to find a definite answer to. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
I was planning on installing a French cleat system in my workshop and barn. After going to many of my local hardware store I found that all they had in the way of 3/4” Plywood was what they called hardwood plywood and cost $59 per sheet. While looking around for a while I came across 1×3×8 Premium Furring Strips (species says Spruce Pine) for $.99 each and I was not sure if this would be sufficient for any substantial weight or for even long term load bearing.
I was planning on using 3” deck boards for the screws because they are the only thing I can find in my area over 1-1/2” except drywall screws. If anybody has any ideas I would greatly appreciate it
