French Cleat


I'm tired of having to clear a spot on the workbench. It was time to do something about it.

  • I was curious on how you made your cuts?

    • I used the circular saw set to 45° and a clamp down edge guide to keep the cut straight.

  • I use French cleats everywhere I can! Such a universal way to hang anything. Anything that has triangle geometry is going to be extremely strong. I will post my power tool shelf I made, that is hung by a French cleat. Made it with 3/4 inch mdf and it currently holds over 15 tools 10 batteries and 3 chargers. I'm not even slightly concerned about the 3/4 inch ash ply cleat, cut at 45 degrees, ever failing! I'm glad I found someone else who uses French cleats!! Can't believe I had to search 10 pages to find someone who did though. Cheers!
