Hi there!
I have the need for about a dozen mini shelves that I want to make and somehow attach to pegboard.
Any suggestions?

Thanks! No, I have lots of those. I should have given dimensions:
I would like about a dozen mini shelves, approx. 5” x 8”, so 5” deep and 8” wide
I think those are about 10-12” and protrude too much for what I need.
They will hold no more than 1.5 lbs

They come in all different sizes.. but here is another solution that just uses the hooks connected to the back of, in this case, a 1×4 board:

Or here is another idea:

I’ve also used the regular pegboard hangers (vary in length from about an inch on out to about 12”) and just placed a piece of wood on top. Lots of options, all pretty simple. If you can’t find a stock length, it’s not too hard to cut them to the length you need. You can also secure the board to whatever you use as a support with a couple of clips to keep it from moving once installed.

Cheers,
Brad

I have made shelves and small drawer units and have used an el screw in to the edge of a 1/4. Same in theory as what MrUnix shared in the video only screwed in to the wood rather than just slipped over. Then just tip your shelf up and slide the hooks into the holes in the pegboard and bingo.
