Thanks for sharing

I really don’t like pegboard it always look too cluttered – I think your tool setup is much better than any pegboard could do.

Nice looking setup Charles. I do have pegboard. I will gladly trade you some for your shelving and dowels :)

I too have pegboard and would rather have your setup. Nice job. Every time I take a tool off the wall the metal piece holding the tool falls out of the pegboard. I have clips that are supposed to keep them from falling out but they don’t do much good when they themselves fall out.

Nice set up.

I have some pegboards too. They mostly hold a number of empty hooks or things I never use.

Nice work, CJ! You can tell it’s down south – no insulation in the walls. No wasted space for you guys. If it sounds like I’m jealous – you’re right.

Looks good to me. Pegboard has its uses, but for storing hand tools the French Cleat systems are becoming popular with woodworkers. Making your own hangers is better than pegboard hangers anyway in my opinion.
Looks great, thanks for sharing with us.
