This peg board was a blast to build, it was from a mag I received in the mail ” Small shop solutions” I didn’t think much of it when I received it in the mail, But I have since built many projects from this book. If you are in need of a peg board, build this it fun to make and cheap.

I have been looking at that project. How did you attach your back panel? The magazine design appears to have no provisions for a back panel. (Their pics show it right up against slatwall).

I had quite a time trying to figure out how I was going to mount the whole thing to my cider block wall. What I came up with is mounting the frame to a piece of 3/4 plywood and then the plywood to the wall, this also allowed me to use the back for more storage area (deep enough to drive screws) there are some more photos posted.

Nicely done. I built one of these for myself. From the outside it looks like a 2 door cabinet, so in that way it’s like nested boxes. I used cleats to mount it to my wall. This leaves enough space behind the cabinet to slide a handsaw or two between the back side and the wall. Sturdy, stable and good use of precious wall space.

Cool, looks like it holds quite a few tools in a small space.

Hi jim, thx for your comments, i do have block walls. i used toggles, But in hind sight I would put some French cleats around your walls. thats how i did my cabinets. you can take them down and rearrange them. do you know what I mean? I ripped some 3/4” scrap ply with a 45 deg bevel. http://www.wallshelfshowcase.com/installationinstructions.html

I fell in love with this project the second I seen it. I plan on building one this summer a longer version. Good job you’re the first I’ve seen build one!
