    I fight with my miter saw all the time. I have to check the angle with a square all the time, 45 and 90. So, I use my table saw miter gauge. I pretty much only use my miter saw when cutting large boards, like 2”x8” boards for a park bench I built for our median in the HOA. How do you cut angles on large boards?

  2. relyk226 notnroht on August 3, 2023 at 4:32 pm

    tip : I use Trewax smells alot better lol and will not yellow

  3. RB on August 3, 2023 at 4:32 pm

    Love the low-key use of the pencil trick when doing tiny pieces on the crusts cut sled. That’s thinking with your dipstick Jimmy!

  4. Dan Custis on August 3, 2023 at 4:35 pm

    An add for the jig saw holder, the upper section make a storage for more bits &/or tools.

  5. Lee Cordochorea on August 3, 2023 at 4:37 pm

    One micro-inch = 0.000001 inch = 0.0254 microns = 25.4 nanometers. Takes an electron microscope to measure that. You need an ULTRA-sharp saw for cutting that. I’m going to search your channel for your saw sharpening tips! Your saw sharpening must be freaking awesome and I want to learn about it!

  6. Austin&Vicky Moore on August 3, 2023 at 4:37 pm

    Made my first tool holder version 1 today! All scraps and it turned out decent! It will be a huge help in the long journey of organizing the shop for the first time to start getting it officially set up!

  7. Robert Hardy on August 3, 2023 at 4:38 pm

    Nearly forgot – I save all my old medical type thin gloves, cut the fingers off and wear one while spreading glue, ‘cos I’m too lazy to clean my hands all the time, plus it maximises the use of all those gloves that get torn or little used.

  8. Chris Harrell on August 3, 2023 at 4:40 pm

    Sorry slightly off subject.but may be of interest regarding saw stop. Stainless steel comes in non magnetic and magnetic types, lots of people think it is all non magnetic. Lets say a hypodermic needles are magnetic, so a magnet can be used to lift discarded needles, instead risking a prick from a contaminated needle also i own 2 12" stainless steel rullers, 1 is manetic and other is not, but they look the same

  9. Coolmale78 on August 3, 2023 at 4:41 pm

    I Normally never comment on videos but what I do like about your videos is your real!! You don’t make things seem perfect because no one is perfect. You are an awesome wood worker and please continue doing videos.

  10. Robert Hardy on August 3, 2023 at 4:41 pm

    Make the jigsaw holder nearer the cleat wall and cut a slot for the blade, you could make it quite a bit nearer.

  11. Kumo's Workshop on August 3, 2023 at 4:42 pm

    Awesome video as always, brother. You mentioned suggestions for tool holders and that you’ve gotten caught on the drill bits so, here it goes. I know it would take a bit more space, but you could make them to hold your drills and drivers flat against the wall if you want to store them with the bits still mounted. To save a bit on space, you can put the holders going diagonally up towards the right, so the drill bit on the drill to the right and up would be over the other drill/driver, and still sort of saving you some space.

  12. bobbg on August 3, 2023 at 4:47 pm

    No your using a crosscut sled, and its none conducive materials, you’ve given the metal part a perfect insulator.

    Hammers lazer eye saws would not trip either. Not on metal parts.
    The best thing is dont assemble then cut parts, if you knock a carbide tip off a blade and ive done it it Flys off the blade at over 100 miles an hour. You dont have time to move and you wont see it comming. Safty glasses are a must.
    At 100 miles an hour its almost as fast as a bullet. Always stand to the side when running a new blade never in its path. Like turn your saw on standing on the far left of the saw arm stretched out with your right hand and turn it on.
    The carbide teeth are brazed on if the blades droped it can bust the weld on just one tooth. I had a 80 tooth none ferrous plywood blade loose a tooth on me cutting aluminum door jam all I heard was the blade tip bounce off of a bunch of stuff I never found it. Brand new blade. Do the stand to the side everytime you change a blade even one youve had for years.

  13. Craig Buckley on August 3, 2023 at 4:47 pm

    Brilliant video, it’s definitely given me food for thought, your video’s are very inspiring 👍👍👍👍

  14. Buck McDaniel on August 3, 2023 at 4:50 pm

    You probably figured this out by now, but your SawStop doesn’t react to "metal" or "material", it reacts to an electrical circuit. Your nail did not contact both the blade and the body of the table saw at the same time, therefore it did not trigger the cartridge.

    The same thing can happen to your hand. If you are completely isolated from the rest of the saw, or the floor, there will not be the necessary electrical circuit to trigger the cartridge and you can lose a limb.

    Sawstop is the best! There are some rare instances where it will not work.

  15. Anonymous98 on August 3, 2023 at 4:52 pm

    Don’t hang anything on a French cleat that requires lifting the tool up to remove, unless the hanging tool holder is locked in somehow.

  16. Terry Heimerl on August 3, 2023 at 4:52 pm

    Thank you for putting in the screw incident. We all need reminding that we do risky things because of familiarity our tools and our trade. The saw stop did not operate because that particular screw was totally insulated by the wood. They used to call devices like the saw stop "Earth LEAKAGE circuit breakers" because they broke the power from the circuit if it detected any current going to earth. In reality they looked for an imbalance between the two power wires and triggered the breaker. In the case of the saw stop the device triggers the braking device.
    Back on children again. Just got a message to say my 12 year old grand daughter broke her thumb during a late tackle in Rugby League. She is a real girls girl until she puts on the colours and boots, then look out. She is not mad about the break. She is mad that she is out for the season! Children just keep on impressing you.

    Way Cool!

  19. Hubbard's Handmade on August 3, 2023 at 4:56 pm

    Very cool stuff Chris. It’s important to leave in those lil “oops” moments so we all learn.

  20. Jeff Thomas on August 3, 2023 at 4:59 pm

    Great ideas, Chris. As soon as my left shoulder is back in commission. I’m going to be putting up my cleats. Great choice of cordless tools.

  21. Richard Trepanier on August 3, 2023 at 5:00 pm

    A micro is 10 to the -6 power. Or one millionth’s

  22. Teo Stevens on August 3, 2023 at 5:00 pm

    Dude, thanks for making us all feel human with that ooops. Stuffs happens for sure!

  23. Jim Storck on August 3, 2023 at 5:01 pm

    How come there are no holders for corded tools??

  24. Rusty on August 3, 2023 at 5:06 pm

    Thanks for your honesty. Keep the process real (all the good, and bad details)

  25. mike coughlin on August 3, 2023 at 5:06 pm

    Next time could you show us the design process to create the holder/hanger? Most of us know how to make things once we have a design but arriving at a design could be tricky, as you just demonstrated.

  26. Patrick Dugan on August 3, 2023 at 5:08 pm

    I hadn’t seen this one. Before the tool storage products hit the market.

  27. Bill Butler on August 3, 2023 at 5:09 pm

    Nice! I made mine with the jigsaw flat to the wall so it won’t stick out so far as the cleat is over my workbench. I’ve started including accessory storage as well with a small cubby (with magnet) to hold the extra blades.

  28. Jeff Thomas on August 3, 2023 at 5:09 pm

    Very interesting design, why not turn the circular saw around to the side. Why not 180 degrees turn. Like the jigsaw holder

  29. James Troi on August 3, 2023 at 5:11 pm

    The cleat lock idea is very cool. I saw your other video about the lock bits you put above the cleat which also works great, but this one looks cooler. 😝

  30. Sirios Star on August 3, 2023 at 5:11 pm

    i think tool freaks spend more time creating shop space and tool holders that using the tools to make a project that doesn’t have anything to do with the tool .
    As cool looking as some of these systems are i am just too old and tired to do anything but throwing my tools on a simple shelf 😂

  31. Q Moonwalker on August 3, 2023 at 5:12 pm

    Great idea for the jig saw. Thanks for the great ideas!! Going to pick up some of those cookies too. Question: Do you have any holder videos for things like pump plyers, adjustable (crescent) wrenches, pipe wrenches, and other various other DYI’er tools us retired dudes have around?? Thanks so much Chris.

  32. LARRY BURRELL on August 3, 2023 at 5:13 pm

    Fantastic info. I’m just getting started with woodworking and am ready to build the French cleat wall in my garage. The walls are drywalled and I will be installing the plywood over the drywall. Would you recommend 3/4" Baltic birch or can I get away with 1/2"? I’ll be using 3/4" for the cleats but didn’t know if I can get away with 1/2" for the walls themselves. Thanks for the inspiration your videos supply!

  33. Sky173 on August 3, 2023 at 5:14 pm

    Great video. Did you forget to tighten your fence or is there just a lot of play in it? @ 13:13

  34. Steve Sandberg on August 3, 2023 at 5:16 pm

    Chris, I have watched so many of these wood cleat videos. You are by far the "Best" in my opinion. Plus, its so obvious you have tremendous enthusiasm which inspires me to follow your ideas and tips! From: Steve in So Cal

  35. bobbg on August 3, 2023 at 5:20 pm

    One problem you’ve got all them green tools, mine are red. No not craftsman
    This company named milwalkie.
    I’ve used dewalt, porter cable , craftsman the old sears stuff, bosch b&d
    Skill saw and so on currently milwalkie is my go to brand.

  36. Lincoln Dickerson on August 3, 2023 at 5:20 pm

    First I love the design of the saw holders.

    Curious about 1 thing. The cleat to tool holder fastening was with brads and glue. This is where the rubber meets the road. The sides of the box you use screws now it’s is also important but…

    Be assurd I am not critsizing. In fact , I think most cleat wall tool holders are way over built including mine. We use 3/4 plywood where 1/4 would likely be fine.

    I am just curious on your rational.

  37. Norm on August 3, 2023 at 5:20 pm

    I actually like that you recognize, admit and then fix your mistakes. Good video.

  38. Nonato Wood Workshop on August 3, 2023 at 5:22 pm

    Olá, vídeo agradável de assistir e muito interessante… Obrigado por compartilhar e Forte abraço … 🛠️👍🏼

  39. bobbg on August 3, 2023 at 5:23 pm

    Stainless steel none ferrous material
    Carbide teeth blade, even thought you didn’t trip the sawstop the blades junk now becuse the over 10k rpms at the shaft and the outside edge of the blade going x amount faster at the teeth has exceed the speed feed rate of cutting this type of material so the blades dammaged and cuts like crap now.
    Its dull.

    You’d think the sawstop would have triped electricity can travel in ss i belive im going to have to test this. I know good ss won’t let a magnet stick. This might be why it didn’t Tripp but a magnet won’t stick to your hand either. You sure the safty not on?

    Last, did you have safty glasses on?
    A carbide tooth will.go right past you eyelid deep into your eye causing blindness and hurt like hell.
    Then you’ll be the one eyed woodworker. Drink rum and wear a patch.

  40. Jason Ray on August 3, 2023 at 5:23 pm

    Do you have a video building your crosscut sled?

  41. arlen Strauch on August 3, 2023 at 5:24 pm

    Good video. I’m going to try this too

  42. Maurice Pettiford on August 3, 2023 at 5:24 pm

    Eye protection should be used in case you hit a screw.

  43. B L on August 3, 2023 at 5:25 pm

    nobody but nobody addresses the issue of shop dust covering your cleat items. Cabinets with sliding doors will solve the problem. Your thoughts

  44. Cemafor on August 3, 2023 at 5:26 pm

    You were building it up, but I physically cringed when you started making that cut into the pocket screw

  45. Jim Santaferrara on August 3, 2023 at 5:26 pm

    Chris, appreciate your honesty on your mistakes! We all make some and by sharing maybe..just maybe, I won’t make that one. Thank you

  46. Cynthia Roberts on August 3, 2023 at 5:27 pm

    You are sooo awesome.
    I just can’t thank you enough for sharing how to store tools in such a neat and tidy way.

  47. Al Heeley on August 3, 2023 at 5:27 pm

    Nice design for the circ saw holder. I’m liking those low profile screws – do you know if we can buy these in the UK (at a reasonable price…)?

  48. Karen McCoy on August 3, 2023 at 5:28 pm

    I love how you show your mistakes, that helps also. Thank you!

  49. Earl B. on August 3, 2023 at 5:28 pm

    I also have a saw stop 3hp and to my knowledge the only way to trigger that brake is to touch it with your hands or by sawing conductive materials with your hands or a conductive
    material like treated wood that still is damp from being treated. Running that piece of wood with the pocket hole screw in it only sparked like any sawblade does when it cuts metal, you’re hands were on the wood piece and it’s not conductive. I’ve cut through embedded nails on my table saw accidently and gotten sparks like you did. Trivial to mention but I think that’s what you meant. I watch all your videos and enjoy them all. keep the contact flowing my friend.

  50. Robert Hardy on August 3, 2023 at 5:31 pm

    Not keen on the drill bit sticking out while it’s stored. If it was mine Iwould be constantly catching it.
    Some great idea’s here though – definitely Donna copy ya!
