I have been in an organising mode of late and my old pegboard panel served me well for a lot of years but it sadly couldn’t hold anything anymore so I retired it.

While I was looking for a more modern pegboard solution I came across this design it not only gives me the same amount of storage space but it reduced its wall footprint allowing me to relocate it on a different wall. So I moved it.

I found an interesting site called rogue engineer.com and he had beautifully laid out plans for the build and it didn’t cost a fortune and it looks great , if you need a copy of the plans you can find them here

It’s a basic build with 3/4” plywood consisting of 2 sides , top, bottom and two independently made pegboard doors and it’s all held together with dados and dare I say it pocket holes, I found the pocket holes to be the best joinery position simply because I was 1 guy building something big.

The dimensions are 36” high, 66” wide and 12” deep.

Materials needed
(1) 3/4”x 4’x8’ plywood ( I used sanded ply)
(1/) 4×8 pegboard
Pocket hole screws 1 1/4”
Glue
2 continuous hinges 30”
(2) 1×6x8’ – pegboard door frame

That’s it

Nice, never enough storage that’s for sure. I made a similar one from shopnotes or woodsmith but doors are on rollers. Nice work.

I like the idea of the doors being on rollers. Downside of that is not being able to use the reverse side of the door for storage. So how about having the doors being to be able to roll and also swing out if needed…have to think about it..must be doable.
