« Part 10: Ceiling drywall done! Experiences learned... Part 11 of Garage Remodel series Part 12: Learning the Veritas 32 Deluxe Cabinet Making System »

After installing drywall on my ceiling, my next goal was something I should of done this long long long ago. With my ever changing layout, these French Cleats will help greatly with organization as I can now have 2 entire walls filled with storage and shelving. I installed 3/4” 13ply plywood 12” wide board near lower chest level and 6” board at head level to give flexibility of extra height shelving and heavier duty/light duty shelving.
4” lag bolts & washers every 16”. I also found the Veritas 32 Deluxe Cabinet Making System at an auction ($50…I guess nobody knew what it was). Will be putting this jig to work shortly for 5,000 shelf pin holes! I do not see much in review section about this so will have to fire one up once done.
