DIY: Pegboard Organizer
Updated: Sep 20, 2021
As an artist and constant crafter, I love having my most used tools within arm’s reach. You never know when you'll need those needle nose pliers. 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
3/4 in. x 48 in. wooden dowel
3/4 in. spade bit
a miter saw
1/2 in. x 4 in. x 4ft. wooden plank
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 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!
