We’ll, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I’m no big fan of pegboards. However, there were a couple of reasons why I decided to use one in my shop. I plan to eventually build a nice outfeed table with a cabinet base. This will have plenty of drawers and cabinets to store everything tablesaw related. But until then, I needed somewhere to store all that stuff. I had considered building customized hangers for each item (like I have been doing for many of my tools) but I didn’t want to spend that much time on something temporary.

The second and most important consideration was the fact that I already had everything on hand. The previous owner of my house had three 2×4’ pegboards hung in the garage, with a small assortment of hooks. I also had some scrap construction-grade lumber to make a frame for the pegboard, so the whole project didn’t cost me a thing.

I recessed the pegboard in a shallow rabbit, and also used a sort of rabbit joint for the corners of the frame. Everything is glued and screwed together.

I also made a hanging box to hold my dado set case and some wrenches. It hangs from the pegboard with screw-in L-hooks (got the idea here). It was looking a bit shabby since it was made from random scraps of wood, so I gave it a coat of dark stain, well, because I can.

All in all, for a couple hours work and all scrap materials, this project turned out to be pretty useful. I now have a place for blades, push sticks, inserts, my thin rip jig, etc. One step closer to getting my shop fully organized!

That stuff does come in handy. I have a Ridgid contractor saw and am thinking about trying to attach a piece of pegboard to a couple of the legs to hang saw related things on.

A picture of my pegboard from a few years back. I used the woodsmith plan as well. It is more crowded now.
