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.
