for those that have seen my shop it is immediately apparent that space and organization is not easy in my 10×10 shed. the terms 10 lbs in a 3 lb bag come to mind
for the longest time i have been wanting to put up a decent sized pegboard in my shop but as always space was a problem. i have 2 smaller plastic ones near my RAS but that just isnt enough anymore now that my machines have displaced several of my storage cabinets. in the back i originally had a small set of shelves that barely held anything. if you look at the pics of my shop you can see it behind my bandsaw.
now i have finally gotten around to building the solution i desperately needed. basically it is like a pegboard cabinet built into the framing of my back wall. the doors open to reveal another pegboard behind them. i have essentially put an entire sheet of pegboard into the same space as half of a sheet. i know there are similar pegboard configurations out there but once again my little space made them useless.
details: the inner pegboard has 3 inches of depth for storage which can handle a lot of the clutter and each half is 4 ft by 2 ft with 2 folding doors on each side (essentially 8 1ft panels put together) i still have to put in the final door but i cant until i find somewhere to put the bicycles. im actually planning on adding onto my shed eventually to solve some of the space issues but thats a ways down the road
well enough of that here are the pics:
yeah the panels arent lined up very well but since its in my shop i dont care
the one downside is that i can only open 1 center door at a time but i figure that is a decent trade off for what i have
without the hooks the project cost me about $50-$60 including the hinges which were 12” piano hinges i cut down for this
the best thing is that the wood for the doors came was salvaged from my old shelves. i finally found a use for those awful shelves
