French Cleat Organization

In this class you will learn how to create your own custom French cleat storage solution. French cleats are a great way to create flexibility and durability at a low cost.  Hang large items like mirrors, shelving units, and cabinets on the wall safely. Quickly move or reorganize small items for any need.

Participants will work with different types of materials such as plywood, glue, and fasteners to understand material uses, performance and cost. That way you will be able to balance cost and quality when creating your own solutions.

In addition, participants will use tools such as a circular saw, miter saw, variable speed drill, stud finder, and clamps. The goal is to develop comfort and skill with each tool. Adding new tools and skills will increase your ability to problem solve with your hands.

Participants will complete the class with a custom screwdriver holder and a French cleat storage solution that covers at least 6 feet by 4 feet (24 sq ft).
