The first is a shelf to hold my grinder. Since I use it so often, putting it away on a shelf is a pain, so I built a platform so that I could use it while it on the wall, but because of the cleat on the back, it’s easy to pick ot up and put it wherever I need it.
The second I a box I designed after one I saw in the shop at school. It’s 4 6” wide strips of 3/4” plywood with a 1/4” dado about 1” from the back to hold the pegboard. I put two 2×4s right behind the pegboard to stiffen it, but since they are screwed into the box, it also makes it a lot stronger. Then I put a cleat on the back so I can move it if I ever need to.
The next project was something I did in the shop at school to kill some time. Its some scrap ply from a sign I made but no one took, so i cut it up to make a hardware box. I keep all the stuff I use the most, the nails for my nail guns, some drywall screws, my pocket screws, a box of finish nails, as well as the 3” deck screws I use for putting up the frech cleats on my shop walls.
The next is something I made to keep my sawblades. I ran some 2×4 scraps through the table saw to provide a groove for the blades to sit in, and then put a 2×4 on the front to keep them from spreading, as well as to give me a spot to hang the neccesary wrenches.
The Final project is a rack I built to hold all my air tools. Its got some ~3” strips of plywood as a back, with some cross braces, to which I attached the cleats to. I also put a small shelf on the bottom to hold pencils, and some small stuff that can’t be hung on pegboard, like fittings, and all the nozzles to fill balls, etc.
