  1. Journal Fireplace Surround/Mantel Details: Installing the French Cleat and Sizing the Inner Panels

    Return to Contents My preparation for installing the French cleat started when the tile installer was starting his work. He cut out the sheetrock holding the old tile surround, installed cement backer board, and affixed the tile to the backer. While the wall was opened up, I took photos and...
  2. Journal Fireplace Surround/Mantel Details: Overall Approach

    Return to Contents Going into the project, I knew I wanted to build as much of the surround as possible in the shop and install it with a French cleat. I wanted to avoid the stress of building the surround in place, and I didn't want to risk damaging the newly-painted wall (which my wife had...
  3. Square and tool holder

    For this project, my inspiration came from another lumberjock project I saw in passing, but I have not been able to find again. I have some delicate incra rules that will become ruined if I did not fix the situation regarding about how I store them in my garage… Therefore, after I saw the...
  4. Wall storage using french cleats

    I needed extra storages, so i was inspired by Steve Ramsey when he organised his old peg board. i used the french cleat idea as it is more flexible. its worked out really good and has really helped tidy the area
  5. Wall Decoration

    I wanted to add some decorations to my house so I came up with this project. I used pallet wood and cleaned it up well. It is hung on the wall with a French cleat on the back side. I used rustic tin cutouts for the trees, snow flakes, and animals. Obviously this is a seasonal piece and will...
  6. sharpening cabinet

    Using boards from a pallet, maple and a grayish wood I don't recognize, I built a tool cabinet to hold my sharpening supplies. I use silicon carbide sandpaper as my abrasive and marble tiles as my flat reference. Two 12"x12" tiles are mounted to the door, which is on lift-off hinges. The door...
  7. Slightly different woven board

    This board has a background and accent stripe of New Guinea Rosewood with the main weave of Tasmanian Blackwood and the other accent is Purpleheart. I hope the pics are big enough and there is a bit more detail.
  8. French Cleat System

    This is based on the woodwisperers french cleat system, Thanks Marc!! I have updated the pics from the original posting, I found that the cleat works much better when it is at the top instead of the bottom, that way the weight if whatever you are holding presses against the rail and is less...
  9. Dovetailed Cherry Cabinet

    This small wall cabinet was built of cherry and features a turned walnut knob, frame-and-panel door pinned with walnut dowels, and a dovetailed drawer and case. For a finish, two sealer coats of clear shellac were applied, then lightly sanded. Next, four coats of Minwax antique oil were applied...
  10. Cherry Tool Cabinet

    This cabinet was designed around the Golden Mean, an early school project as practise in hand tools. The criteria was dovetails and tenons, all cut by hand. This piece fastens to the wall with a french cleat. I epoxied rare earth magnets into the cleat and veneered over them so most hand tools...
  11. Drill Charging Station

    This was one of my very first shop projects. The initial design was from Jay Bates Drill Charging Station. It grew from there and its sole purpose was to be a location for all of my Porter Cable 20v tools. It was fun to learn how to use pocket holes and some basic woodworking techniques. As my...
  12. Wall entertainment

    This was a first. The sliding door was lot easier than expected. I used a double french cleat to hold this up
  13. French Cleat Wall

    I finally got around to building a French cleat storage wall. I used every inch of space I could think of. It was fun to figure out different ways of hanging things. I found quite a few things that don't work so well and many that did and I learned the hard way to drive a screw into the...
  14. Air Nailer/Drill Wall Cabinet Rack

    As part of my shop re-do, I wanted a way to organize all of my air nailers and commonly used drills/drivers. I came up with this simple design to hang on the wall. I also decided to try a French cleat system for the first time. The whole unit is made of 1/2" Birch plywood. I tried out the...
  15. Bessey F-Style and Parallel Clamp Rack

    I became frustrated with my nice F-Style Bessey Clamps either hanging from a hot water pipe in the basement (not a good idea) and my parallel clamps leaning against a wall where I invariably tripped or knock them over. I had been thinking about building or even buying a clamp rack for a long...
  16. Floating media cabinet and shelf

    This is a floating media cabinet that I made for my father in law. The basic goal was to create some sort of storage solution for the media components and dvds that did not sit on the floor and a clean design. It is constructed of oak ply and solid oak edging and drawer fronts. The cabinet is...
  17. French cleat clamp wall

    Considering the limited space in my small shop, I wanted to hang my clamps above the cement foundation and not block the parking of my major tools. To avoid the build-up of sawdust in the cleat I tapered the tops on a 45 degree angle as well.. Any spaces that are left over between the hanging...
  18. Presentation Panel

    My Bishop wanted a map of our Ward area, and also some magnetic white board where he and the Ward leadership could manage the organization and plan activities with some mag strips. This is the result. Two frames, made of red oak, joined at one edge by a piano hinge. Hung with a French cleat...
  19. From PEG to CLEAT

    When I first moved into this house and started collecting tools, I put up a peg board because I thought that's all there was. Since I found LumberJocks, I saw that there were other organizing systems available that you can make yourself. I really liked the modular French Cleat system. I took...
  20. Saw Till

    Just finished a quick saw till to get them off the benchtop and make some room. Details on the blog.
