    I’m not 100% positive, but being a Grandfather I just bet your Grandpa
    would be very proud of you. Heck, I’m proud and don’t even know you – I
    like your spirit and drive

    Hey! Inspired way you drill the dowel holes on the slant. I’m stealing
    that! Yes I am, ya can’t stop me, it’s mine now. Thanks April.

    Nice job April! Family tools are always used and displayed proudly and you
    accomplished it with this. Great job!

  4. Randy Whittemire says:

    Very nicely done.. I really like the screw driver holder, mine are just
    everywhere, really like how you done that. 

  5. Scott Kershaw says:

    Great stuff, April. I am still dragging my feet on the drill press cart.

  6. Nicholas Smerk says:

    Nice! I just subscribed. Unfortunately, I use my wrenches and sockets ALL
    the time.

    Another great video. You should consider making a video of the actual
    build. It would be good to watch.

    you. Dinner?

    cool idea of keeping the box end wrenches and sockets together.. defiantly
    something to think about thanks!

    like so many others i put up a wall of pegboard, hung a bunch of hooks and
    called it good for a while. that is until i discovered french cleats.

    i am taking my inspiration from you, Jay Bates and Steve Ramsey. i have now
    taken down quite a few things from the pegboard system and switched them to
    french cleats; and i couldn’t be happier. my plan is to build an open-style
    hutch that sits on top of one of my work benches (that sits against the
    back wall) and use french cleats in the space between the sides and below
    the upper storage shelves.

    i currently keep my sockets and ratchets in my mechanic’s tool chest (i
    like to do my own car/truck maintenance) so those will probably stay there.
    but the combination wrenches, adjustable (crescent) wrenches, t-handle
    allen wrenches and screwdrivers will definitely go on the french cleat
    system (along with the rest of the woodworking-type tools).

    so thank you for your inspiration and keep the vids coming.

    I use to use only peg board until I discovered French Cleat. The system
    is so versatile. I’m planning to install them around my shop and build tool
    holders for all my tools. I like your ideas and may incorporate some of
    them. Thank you.

    Great work April. Love the way you’re so pleased with it all. Passion is

    years and I still smile when I come up with something cool.

    wrenches or was it you? :)
