French Cleat Video

In this video I show how I built a french cleat wall for tool storage in my workshop. The goal of this project was to build a french cleat tool wall so that I could store many of my often used tools in a way that was aesthetically pleasing and easily accessible.

The french cleat wall system allows for a TON of flexibility in ways to store tools. Each tool holder can be custom built to the specific size and number of tools you own.

I made this french cleat system from two 4’x8’ sheets of 3/4 inch plywood. One sheet for the wall and one sheet to make the 45 degree cleats from.

There are so many different designs for french cleat tool holders to go on the wall, so I only showed the build process for a few of the first ones I made. I would love to hear from you as to what your favorite design is for a french cleat tool holder. Let me know what it is in the comments below. I will be looking for new designs to incorporate into this wall.
