Slatwall storage system, homemade, switching from Pegboard.

I started on this shop building project shortly after I retired.

I'd like to show you what I've accomplished so far.

My garage measures 20 X 24 feet, & I wanted to partition out a shop area.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In order to have a shop 8 feet wide, I had to resize my garage door from 12' to 9 '

Notice the car hiding under a warm blanket of snow.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is the floor plan. I don't get much garage space, but my car sits outside all of time anyhow.
Its used mainly for storage.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I only had a 7' ceiling so I made a vaulted ceiling over the shop area.

I converted the 2×4 rafters to 2×10s by screwing 9 1/2" plywood gussets to 2×4s.

Taking advantage of the vaulted ceiling I added 3 small bubble skylights. I really love those skylights.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Even with their small size, 16" x 16" they give a lot of natural light.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Exterior, showing the skylights.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I got this old natural gas furnace for $25, I have to shut it down when the outdoor temp gets over 50, because the pilot light makes it too warm. You may notice the 2" PVC pipe trap connected to the furnace. I blocked the indoor vents so it draws in combustion air from the outside
I hung it up high for added floor space.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My shop has been in such an awful mess I decided to do some revamping for better tool storage.

I've had pegboard, but have never liked it very much, so I've been looking at whats called Slat wall paneling.

It's pretty expensive though, for a 4X8 sheet close to $200.
This is an example of the store bought panel.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I came up with a poor mans way of doing it.
I made a slat wall out of this pine paneling, I had it in my wood supply.
I had paid $4 a pkg. that covers 14 sq. ft. I think you can get it for about $6 now.

I cut the tongue, & grooves of, & rounded the edge.

I ripped some to 1 1/8" wide furring strips, & this is how it turned out.
I painted the background green for a contrast.


Now I have a couple more walls to do, then I'll start hanging tools.
Thank you, kiwi1969,

& Grumpy, there's still a pile of snow that's about two feet deep on the north side of my shop.

I tried to shovel it into the sun, but it's hard like an iceberg.

Hi Dick,

Lenny here…the fella you sold on the Rikon band saw, remember? Your homemade slat wall is a great example of thrifty ingenuity. Your shop is coming along quite nicely. I am curious as to where in your shop you place your table saw. My shop is also only 8' wide (18' long). I don't own a table saw yet. I have gotten by for 30 years on a radialarm. I will be purchasing my first and last table saw within the next year or so and continue to ponder where in my small shop to place it. Your input would be appreciated.

Thanks Lenny.

I'm the same as you, I had a radial arm saw, & finally switched to a table saw.

A radial arm saw works great in a narrow shop.

After I get my walls done, & get everything together I'll post a picture of my arrangement.

Please be patient.

Hi Dick;

Lets see who gets done first. You with the shop, me with the entertainment center! LOL

Nice job.

Hi Lee,

If it takes you 19 years, for your cabinet, your new TV will be in the same category as the old crystal set radios.

I do hope you're faster than me. LOL

Slatwall storage system, Homemade, paneled walls are done now.

This is a continuation of #5 in this series.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have the slat wall paneling completed.

Now how am I going to arrange my tools? I bought the material at Lowes.

It's 5/16" X 3 1/2" X 8'

14 Sq ft. in a package. Other big box stores handle similar products.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



This is the last wall, I ripped my boards in half to 1 5/8". I like it better this way. There's more slots for arranging tools. The space between the slats is 5/16". The furring is 1/4" x 1 1/8"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Some of the tools hung, but I suppose I'll be rearranging them as I go along.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Here's the first wall I diid with the wider boards.

I also made a hanging bracket for my pipe clamps.

They used to be all over the place. My other clamps are on the same wall too.


Notice the pile of cut pieces of Brazilian Cherry flooring. I can hardly wait to get stared on my next project. They're all cut to the proper length already.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I bought these glass reinforced nylon hooks from, outwaterplastics.com.

They were about 1/3 the cost of steel, but they're plenty strong enough.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I made some brackets for heavier things by epoxying the nylon to some flooring.





~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Good for hanging my handscrew clamps


Now if I can get rid of all of the clutter I've accumulated over the years, I'll be all fixed up.

Very neat Dick. The timber slats really add to the look.

I really like the way this looks, Dick. This should help organize your shop and provide plenty of storage. I have been considering replacing my pegboard walls with slats. This looks like it would work in my shop.

Thanks for the post.

I like this idea, Dick. I have sections in my shop, that I've never put up sheet rock, and this would be a great way to cover the insulation and organize some stuff that's laying around or in boxes. Some of the things I have to organize, I would have to go with the metal hooks, but I believe the plastic ones would work for most things. Thanks for the post.

That is a very tidy job Dick. Its making me rethink my current setup.

Is that a slight bevel I see on the upper board to hold the bracket?

14 Sq ft. in a package. Other big box stores handle similar products.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



This is the last wall, I ripped my boards in half to 1 5/8". I like it better this way. There's more slots for arranging tools. The space between the slats is 5/16". The furring is 1/4" x 1 1/8"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Some of the tools hung, but I suppose I'll be rearranging them as I go along.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Here's the first wall I diid with the wider boards.

I also made a hanging bracket for my pipe clamps.

They used to be all over the place. My other clamps are on the same wall too.


Notice the pile of cut pieces of Brazilian Cherry flooring. I can hardly wait to get stared on my next project. They're all cut to the proper length already.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I bought these glass reinforced nylon hooks from, outwaterplastics.com.

They were about 1/3 the cost of steel, but they're plenty strong enough.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I made some brackets for heavier things by epoxying the nylon to some flooring.





~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Good for hanging my handscrew clamps


Now if I can get rid of all of the clutter I've accumulated over the years, I'll be all fixed up.
Looks really great. You ran vertical strips to fasten the horizontal slats to?
Sure is clean looking.

A big thank you! to all.

Zuki, I just changed the picture to show how the slats are cut at a 15 degree angle.

Gary, I used 1/4" vertical furring behind the slats.

I painted the background green for contrast.

Ahhhhhh . . . the hooks then go in between the vertical slats.

I have bare stud wall in my shop so it should work ok.

The space between the slats is 5/16".

You can jump back to #5 in this series for more pictures of the shop walls.

I added a few more parts in this series, & they're are out of order now.

I can't figure out how to change the numbers.

Hey Dick you're way ahead of me. I just sent away for some cyclones I can hook up to my shop vac and to my 1hp shop dust collector. They should help me a lot in the dust clean up part. I've made a couple of tall cabinets that I've put peg board on the sides, and wheels so I can move them around where I need them. I got the kids promise to help me clean up the clutter and the best news is I just got a call to come and pick up a good size walnut tree a friend of mine just dropped and cut up. So I gotta round up some workers for Sunday and go pick it up. Your ideas are great, and you sure have a lot of tools. Thats my problem. Too many dang tools. But you have found a nifty way to organize them with the french cleat. kudos cheif. m
