  1. talk about hand plane heaven. Love all those molding planes.

  2. Thanks!

  3. Not bad. I set up a french cleat system, but I’m not super happy with it.

  4. Nice Idea!
    When I retired, the first thing I built was a wall cabinet for my hand
    tools. I need to add more storage already as I keep picking up more old
    tools. I have a video tour on you tube: Cip’s Tool Cabinet Tour
    Thanks, Cip Mendez

    French cleats can look good. What aren’t you happy with?

  6. +Joshua Farnsworth
    Stability mostly. They fall off too often when I’m getting a tool out of

  7. +Keith Peters Sorry…now commenting from my WoodAndShop account. Yea, I
    guess I can see how frustrating it would be to have falling tools! Mine
    isn’t as adjustable as french cleats, but I guess it’s pretty stable.

  8. Hey, nice video Cip!

  9. What about moisture? How do you keep your tools on the shelf without
    getting rust, other than oil?

  10. Thanks for this video. A great and simple method of hanging tools that I’ll
    be making this weekend. So many other complicated methods have failed so
    I’ll let you know what happens. Thanks again.

  11. hi I called Jim and is from Denmark first let me say thanks for a great
    program, I kontagter you because I need your help to start my own studio
    up, but my broblem is that I have no jop so the money is small. so I hope
    that you or some of your fans can help me with getting a repair shop up and
    running, I can use all hand tools and the like used but not power tools,
    since we have 220 volts in Denmark,

    Sincerely, Jim borg

  12. The perfect way to build your own woodworking is taking full advantage of
    woodworking pro, without try and fail like them before!

  13. You will discover a verified technique to build your own woodworking
    starting within a few short days from now on, get more info here:

  14. +Keith Peters How about drilling a hole through the “board” and into the
    wall-fixed cleat, and securing it with a decorative peg? This would resist
    the upward movement for the board when removing a tool and the board would
    still be easily removable with out tools for take down.

    ive been meaning to make one of these tool boards for some time now. i like
    the dowel method

  16. Good idea!

  17. IF you want to make it by yourself just go to woodprix page.

  18. Thanks for the video, I did get a small detail that I was thinking about
    the other day. I still haven’t begun with Woddy Hyezmar’s book yet, though
    he is still giving his “Woodworking Bible” away, google him.

  19. Matthew Lavergne

    do it yourself , go to woodprix page and learn how .
