This was made from some clear fir picked up on clearance from Lowes a while back and from a piece of southern yellow pine that was waiting to be repurposed. By the way, don’t ever tell a non-woodworker that you purchased some clear fir, as they will have no idea what you are talking about, DAMHIK. Lowes also had some metal racks designed for slat wall that I particularly liked because they were epoxy coated (and needed to be adapted to my pegboard.) The epoxy coating sheds dust with a brush or a blast of air.
If you can see, the grey racks are angled forward to make retrieving tools easier, and they have a ledge under them, so the tools only fit in so far. Along the top, I cut in notches to increase the storage, again with a small receiving shelf underneath to limit how far down an item will sit. The entire rack mounts to the wood behind the pegboard, as I wanted rock solid mounting.
The finish was some button shellac sitting around waiting to be used!
I’ll arrange my tools tomorrow, after the shellac dries.
