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.
ok, feeling a wee bit dull now. I didn't realize the comment above mine was from the OP. jeez , on my first post too. oh well. thanks ever so much. will head on over to Lowes in the morning..

2kool4skool,
Thank you, your comment opened my eyes to the fact that I had omitted the dimensions, so I just edited the story, & put the info at the beginning of this thread.

Installing Oak Parquet flooring.

One of the main reasons I put the new slatwall system in my shop,

was because my Son brought me some Parquet flooring he had salvaged from his job.

He couldn't see throwing it in a dumpster,

so he brought it to his "Dumpster Dad".

I couldn't put down a fancy floor without doing something to the rest of the shop.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I laid some out to see what it would look like.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I put down some 7/16" Oxbord for underlayment, because the old floor was kind of springy.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I had to shift my equipment to one end, & do a portion of it at time.

I ended up laying it across the short way. I think it makes the narrow shop look wider.



I,m glad I have casters on most of them. It made it much easier.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I had to stop here yesterday with about 3 more feet to the end,
because I have to trim off the bottom of the door.


I think it'll be much more enjoyable playing out here now.

Dick, this is a nice addition to your shop. It will dramatically improve its appearance and goes nicely with the slat wall. There is a great deal to be said for improving the look and appearance of a shop. Not only does it improve the shop's overall appearance but it simply makes it a more pleasant area in which to work.

Nice job.

Nice job Dick! That's a first class floor for a workshop.

It would have been a colossal waste of good material to throw it away. I'm sure you'll enjoy this new floor every time you go to your shop.

Dick, that is absolutely a great dumpster save and addition to your shop. I'd love to find a save like that and put some down in my shop too. I love that slatwall system too.

A Big Thank you to everyone!

It's going to be awfully hard to make the first sawdust mess out there.

Maybe this will give me some incentive to keep it clean now.

I had to make some parquet tiles yesterday.

I misjudged the amount of tiles I had, so I manufactured some more yesterday.

I guess I miscounted the bundles I had made up.

I couldn't find any to buy, so I made some.

I made about 60 more tiles.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is the area I have left to do in one corner of the main shop area.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Here's some views of the tiles I made.

I used some Black Ash instead of Oak, but it's what I had in my stockpile.




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I planed the boards to 1/2", then cut them to 3" X 9". Then chamfered all the edges.

A long drawn out process. The Ash look similar to Oak. Good enough for a shop floor
