Covered 3 of 4 walls with cleats. A little less than 3 1/2” wide and they are 8” on center. Size of the cleat probably related to the plywood I ripped them from. I’m pretty sure I ripped the 4” wide sheet into 6” wide strips. Then split each of those at an angle, and the finished cleat then being about 3 1/4” on the long side.

Not sure where the 8” came from. Probably just figured I didn’t need to locate something so exactly. Or possibly spaced so the first cleat under the wall cabinets that hang from the cleats would be usable.

I like the cleats for the flexibility. Comes in handy. But hard to argue with just using plywood on the walls and screwing things here or there as needed. The nice thing about the cleats though is if you want some pegboard, just attached some pegboard to a cleat and you have a movable pegboard.
