All Shaper French Cleat projects work with this wall-mounted cleat system. The cleats are made out of ¾” plywood that is 2¼” tall, with a 45 degree angle facing the wall. Start by cutting your plywood into 3.75 inch (100mm) strips on the table saw Rotate your blade to a 45 degree angle. Then cut your strips at around 1.5 inches (40mm) or wherever midway on your piece falls on your table saw. Drill pilot holes with a countersink every at same interval as wall studs for stability. Mount cleats to wall (angled side up) at 8" intervals.
