tony davies: Great video,thanks for posting,also can you use MDF because its cheaper than ply and i am on a budget at the moment 

Yarnell Wash: Really nice video on french cleat system.  I built a new workshop for the first time but found out I was hurting for room to hang stuff, and your video helped me out a lot. My son told me about french cleats and I had no idea what he was talking about.  French cleat system is going to help in making adjustments in case I decide I have move something.  By way ... and it's going to sound nuts but I built all my walls to my shop out of pallet wood. Like plywood sheets.  Didn't think it would be possible, but it worked and just finished it. Now I need to find some spray to fill in the small spaces of the wood, however, as it is now, no rain or wind can enter the shop.  Shop is 15' x 16'.  Thanks.

Jeannie Kvanvig Robertson: Thanks for the helpful video, Trip.  I need to hang a large, heavy chalkboard in my classroom which already has the wood cut and attached to the backside of the board.  Mounting the chalkboard to the wall doesn't seem like such a big task now.  Thanks again!  Jeannie

Courtney Hinson: SS

Thank you for the comments. I just watched your video in the French cleat system and the simplicity if it blew me away.
I'm new to wood working and is becoming my hobby since I'm about to retire from the military. One question I could use your help on is how to cover the ends of boards? I've been using the Kreg jig a lot but there is and end always showing that just doesn't look good. Any advice?
