This is my version of rolling pegboard cabinet that I was inspired to build from:
Mark Whitsitt’s project:
- There’s a $15 wood dolly as the base.
- The framework is put together mostly with pocket hole screws / Kreg jig, except for the shelves, which were attached with a nail gun.
- For the drawer, it was the first time I tried using my Jessum doweling jig, which works fine. You just have to measure carefully; of course I guess that’s for anything. I really hadn’t built drawers before so I did screw up the sides. My solution was just to mount the sliders on the bottom. (Ideally this is one of those, “OK, that was a recoverable learning experience I’d prefer not to repeat.)
- I did add a small bracket on the back near the top to hold some 6’ pipe clamps. And the rear part of the lower shelves are cut a few inches deeper than the front side, which are flush. This was to accommodate storing the clamps by just clamping them to the top of the case or the bracket.
- The pegboard itself is attached via the nail gun, and is the actual side, there’s no underlying plywood. Where the 2×2 side rails exist, I just can’t use pegs is all. No big deal.
That’s about it! No more running back and forth for every tool and cleanup every time I head to the driveway to build something. Just roll all the gear out!
Thanks to Mark for the idea.
