French cleat garage system

Project by chadsworkshop posted 12-24-2011 03:01 AM 23402 views 8 times favorited 11 comments Add to Favorites Watch

I built this french cleat garage system to get everything I could off the floor. It was basically a big experiment but it works great.

Thanks for the comments everyone. Lycilph, the plastic box holders (assuming you mean the totes) are very simple. It’s just some plywood ‘arms’ that sit under the lip or handle of the tote. I started by picking a sturdy tote and built the brackets around it. Hope that helps.

I love french cleats. I particularly like what you did with the plastic tubs. Nice job thanks for sharing.

Before remodeling my workshop (this last time), I found a website where a guy had run french cleats around the entire perimeter of his shop, at exactly the same heights). I did this on mine and love it. I don’t know how many times I’ve reconfigured due to buying a new tool. Definitely more flexible that a fixed hanging system. My cabinets / chop saw station, etc., is all mounted on the cleats.

I’m sure you’ll enjoy for a long time.

This is awesome , make me jealous. On the other hand looks like a project that you could always be fine tuning or “making better” My brain would never stop

Neat. That’s the only way I can describe this – I have done something similar in my garage, but have added shelving to the wall too.
