Hi everyone. I got the plans for this out of a ’ Setting Up a Small Shop” ( I think). A publication from Popular Woodworking, Anyway, this turned out pretty great from a utility point of view. Myself, like most of us, should certainly be more organized in my shop. This project puts nearly 20 square feet of pegboard into only a cabinet’s worth of wall space. It’s made almost entirely of 2x material and a sheet of pegboard.

PS. Don’t tease me about my tools, I am working on it lol

I won’t tease you—I have that exact set of chisels, the same hacksaw, combination square and rasp :-)

Hah – I have that same issue, and am about halfway through building the same cabinet (haven’t had much weekend time this past month with all the Christmas activities…)

I hope mine turns out half as nice as yours…

Nice job!

Good use of available space.
Now you just walk over & take a tool when needed.
Nice job.

These are great storage units, they can hold alot in a small foot print. Small shop, big shop alike makes for a great project. Well done and best of all, it gives You reason to buy more tools and who doesn’t like to do that !!

I just took a look at your cabinet. I have been thinking that will one of my next projects, to help reduce a little clutter. I hope mine turns out as nice as yours. Nick
