Wood project number 3. I keep learning juust a bit more with each and every project and each one goes a bit smoother than the last.

I needed a way to keep all my drilling and aluminum finishing supplies right at hand so I built this simple wall cabinet/shelf/pegboard thing to sit behind my drill press.

It is made from some very cheap .99 scrap wood from HD and a piece of pegboard for the backing. I used 1/4 dowels to hold the shelves.

Thanks for looking. I am still learning so any comments/suggestions are always welcome.

I like it. It’s amazing how many accessories every piece of equipment we have in our shops that we need to have. Having a place for them all is a big key to success.
