As an artist and a crafter, I love having my most used tools and accessories within arm’s reach. That’s why I love these pegboard organizers I created in just 8 easy steps. Follow along to make one for yourself.
- 1/2 in. x 2 ft. x 2 ft. Wooden Project Panel
- Sand Paper
- 3/4 in. x 48 in. Wooden Dowel
- 3/4 in. Spade Bit
- Miter Saw
- 1/2 in. x 4 in. x 4ft. Wooden Plank
- Hanging Fixtures
Step 1: With a pencil and T-Square, create a grid with vertical and horizontal lines across your project panel every four inches.
Step 2: Using the 3/4 in. Spade Bit, drill a hole into the project panel at each intersection of lines on the grid.
Step 3: Carefully sand the wood around each hole so it’s smooth and erase your pencil markings.
Step 4: With the miter saw, cut several 5 inch and 3 inch segments from the wooden dowels. They will serve as pegs and shelf holders.
Step 5: Cut the plank in half with the miter saw. These pieces of plank will serve as shelves.
Step 6: Attach the hanging fixtures onto the top back corners of the wooden panel.
Step 7: Insert the pegs into the project panel and place the shelves on top of the shelf holders.
Step 8: Hang the pegboard and it’s ready for use!
