Take a look at six ways to hang your work securely so that it’s flush against the wall. The methods range from screws driven through a mounting rail that’s part of the cabinetry to two types of French cleat. In-between are keyhole slots and hangers, which provide slots that capture the mounting screws.
In her narration to this slide show, FWW associate editor Anissa Kapsales explains that some hang-up methods are ideal for solid-back pieces, while others are tailor-made for open shelves. Whatever type of hanger you choose, make it part of the plan from the beginning. It can influence the thickness of parts, the construction, and the overall design.
