This file, in Adobe Illustrator format, is a set of re-usable template tools for designing french cleats.
Files included (2)
French cleat Template.ai
SPAX box shelf.svg
None, this is just a template to simplify french cleat designs.
- Shaper Origin
- Your imagination
- Some Adobe Illustrator Skills
The template includes the following:
- Common design tools to help simplify the process of designing french cleats
- First attempt at a design using the tools (SPAX screw boxes)
Feel free to play with it and provide feedback. Over time, I plan to add more tools and keep this template updated for the community.
EDIT: The designs in the Illustrator file had to be modified for accurate fit. Please use the SPAX box shelf.svg file. I’ve also uploaded photos after my build.
One final note, I didn’t use an offset for the cutouts, so they were very tight. You may want to experiment with very small offsets until you get a perfect fit.
