Do It Yourself Organizing [Making
Posted on November 22, 2016 @ 10:18:00 AM by Paul Meagher

Getting organized is hard to do. It seems that the rate of collecting stuff exceeds the rate at which I can find a home for it. I did, however, find a couple of DIY videos on getting organized by April Wilkerson that might help.

I found April's youtube videos when I was looking for more information on the French Cleat System. She provided an impressive demonstration on how to build a large number of custom cleat holders for her wide array of sponsored power tools.

The advantage of the French Cleat System is that it is very adaptable and you can build new cleat holders to accommodate your evolving storage needs. The Family Handyman editor, Travis Larson, has a video promoting the French Cleat System for Garage Storage in which he offers up some further cleat holder ideas.

I also watched a second DIY organizing video by Kendra where she tackles some harder to organize bits and pieces that accumulated in her shop. In this video Kendra discusses her organizational philosophy of "building homes for stuff".

As we approach the xmas season I'm hoping to do some DIY projects as gifts. A small cleat system with a few cleat holders is one DIY gift-giving idea. The gift of adaptive organization and storage.
