I got tired of waiting on some pegboard, or maybe I just change my mind, but here is what I came of with, I think its just as good.

Wall Storage!

looks great charles! I think this looks much better than a pegboard (I’m not a big fan of those)

Now you will never be able to find anything.,.. it will be where it is supposed to be… lol
When I clean up and organise my shop I can’t find a thing for weeks.
Nice job of the saw BTW and the wall storage came out good too.
i noticed you have your hammers on the nail but the puller… good idea I will try that.. when I get organised LOL

Great work Charles and the rehab on the saw came out wonderful. A out feed table would be a nice addition on the saw and a great work space as well… thanks for posting and stay safe…Blkcherry

Nice job. A place for everything and everything in its place.

If it is in plain sight I will eventually find it. In theory, when the wall is covered and everything has been fitted in, it tends to get put back in same place it came from… usually… when it doesn’t, I find erosion creeps in and subsequently nothing fits back where it is suppose to be and I need to reshuffle the wall again. The same reasoning told me not to put doors on the cabinets or do drawers… keep everything in sight… in theory, easier to find.

well done charles ,
you are doing it now !

good to see .
you will be improving this all the time .
what i did for my outfeed table , is use cabinets
with drawers, more storage, more work area .
or leave out some drawers and have shelf for a smaller machine .

great progress !

Hi Charles. You have created a nice alternative to the pegboard that appears to be quite functional for you. Great job! I couldn’t help but notice the red metal adjustable clamps in a couple of the pictures. Wow, do they bring back memories. I do not even recall if I still have them but at one time I owned and used two, three or even four of those clamps. It’s funny, I have been at this hobby for nearly 30 years now and have amassed my share of new tools, fancy gadgets, etc. Yet, I look back on the early days when I had only a few power tools, and fewer dollars to spend on this hobby of ours. I remember using those clamps the first time and not knowing enough to use scrap lumber to protect the good wood from the marks the circular jaws of the clamp leave behind. If you didn’t guess, I had to sand that project a bit more than planned!

Again, nice job Charles and thanks for the post. It brought up a nice walk down memory lane for me.

Thanks guys and thanks Lenny, the more I look at the better I like it. Next projects are rolling tool carts for my benchtop planer and jointer, workbench/outfeed table, and a lumber rack.
