32. Hang a Heavy Cabinet or Some Other Item

Adjust the blade of a table saw or a circular saw to 45 degrees, then rip a length of 14 in half. Use screws to attach the top half to the object being hung, with the bevel facing the object. Screw the bottom half to the wall at the studs, placed so that its bevel will interlock with the top one. Voila—you've made a French cleat.
