  1. I finally finished my storage bin and got my shop cleaned up.
  2. I am continuing my effort to organize my garage/shop to make it easier to do projects and woodworking. Today I made french cleat hanger above my workbench for a pre-cut 24"x48" pegboard. I also completed a little shelf to put the battery chargers on and get them thar darn things off my bench. The only reason I am posting is to provide an example of how I hung the pegboard. I made a frame the size of the pegboard with the end pieces extending out of the top to provide a hanger for the pegboard from the french cleat. Because the french cleat was higher than I wanted the pegboard I had to extend those pieces to make the pegboard low enough. The frame is made out of 3/4" plywood 2" wide. The joints are butt joints with pocket screws and glue. From the pictures below you may see that I braced the hanger with some corner braces. Having most of my stuff on french cleats allows me to reorganize and move things. I am glad I have done this because it has been really handy. What did I learn: I should have drawn the project before I executed.; I wound up cutting the french cleat shorter than I wanted but I was able to accommodate the mistake. I should have cut one more 2" strip to use as a spacer at the bottom of the pegboard which offsets the frame the thickness of the wall-mounted french cleat. I used leftover blocks as spacers. It works but not ask neat as I'd like. Using 2" strips as the frame results in the loss of two rows of pegboard holes on each edge. Look before you drill. When pre-drilling the holes to mount the pegboard to the frame I hit a pocket screw and destroyed my brad-point drill bit. Pegboard hooks and accessories use to come with an extra little nib on them to help hold them in place. Now they come with little plastic clips. DO NOT install the clips before you are certain you have the hook where you want it. The clips are a pain to get out. SAFETY NOTE! When ripping wood, hang onto that piece between the fence and the blade. I had a momentary lapse of concentration and a 2"x48" strip shot off the table saw like a missile. It missed the motorcycle by mere inches and done a number on one of the garage door pivot hinges. If I had been in front of it, I am guessing it would have hurt like the dickens. Enjoy.
