3D Pegboard Rack

One day while working at my bench, it occurred to me that I could gain additional storage space on my pegboard rack without increasing the size of the footprint on the wall. To do this, I made the panels into three-dimensional sections, as shown in the photo above.

Three frames. Each section consists of a  triangular frame with two pieces of pegboard attached to the front face of each frame. A pair of cleats on the back of the frame provides a surface for mounting each section to the wall. And the top and bottom panels, along with the uprights, add rigidity to the assembly. The top panel even doubles as a small shelf.

I mounted the frames to the wall through the cleats before screwing the pegboard sections to the frame. This configuration as shown added over 40% more surface area.

SAFETY IN THE WORKSHOP Safety devices, such as riving knives, guards on table saws and guards over router bits have been deliberately left out of the line drawings in Australian Woodsmith projects in order to make them easier to follow. It goes without saying that where safety devices have been supplied by the manufacturers you should use them. We encourage the use of push sticks as good work practice.
    Exercise vigilance and the greatest of care when using power tools, whether stationary or portable. Keep all your tools sharp and well maintained. Wear protective eyewear, a dust mask and a hearing protector when appropriate. By limiting distractions and developing safe work practices you will go a long way to avoiding workshop accidents. So, work safe fellow woodworkers.  -Editor
