this french cleat thing came from Family Handyman magazine last month…1×6 #2 pine ripped on a 45 (leaving enough cut-off to serve as the hangers which I attached to scrap plywood with glues and screws). My primary purpose was extension cord storage hence the longer pieces to catch the rail below for support and the carriage bolts covered with scrap PEX tubing to prevent fraying the cords on the bare threads. But while I was set up I made a ton of hangers for future use using scraps I had. The “verticals” were required solely because I have ribbed steel walls and have to cleat everything I want to hang. If you have flat wall and can find the studs, you don’t need them. IMHO it beats pegboard by 100 points.
