How to build a basic wall tool center
The first step of the project is to build the frame for the tool center with pegboard. Cut the components at the right dimensions from 1×2 lumber. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the top component. Align the edges with attention and make sure the corners are square. Insert 1 1/4″ screws and add glue to the joints.
Continue the project by assembling the frame that will hold the pegboard. You can use 1×2 or 1×2 slats, as shown in the diagram. Cut the components at the right dimensions and then assemble them together with 1 1/4″ pocket screws, as shown in the diagram.
Drill pocket holes along the sides and top of the interior frame and then insert 1 1/4″ screws to secure it to the outer frame. Make sure you align the edges with attention and add glue to the joints.
Attach the 24″x36″ pegboard to the frame of the tool center. Use 1 1/4″ brad nails to secure the pegboard into place.
The next step of the project is to build the storage unit for the pegboard tool center. Use 3/4″ plywood for the storage unit. Drill pocket holes along both sides of the bottom piece. Add glue to the joint and make sure the corners are square before inserting the 1 1/4″ screws.
Attach the rest of the components into place. Drill pilot holes and insert 1 5/8″ screws to secure the components into place tightly.
Fit the rest of the components into place, as shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes before inserting the 1 5/8″ screws. Add glue to the joints and align the edges with attention.
Fit the storage unit to the frame of the pegboard. Drill pilot holes through the storage unit and then insert 1 1/4″ screws to lock them to the vertical frame supports.
Last but not least, you need to take care of the finishing touches. Fill the holes with wood putty and then smooth the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper. Apply a few coats of stain or paint over the components to protect the components and to enhance the look of the tool center.
This is a simple woodworking project, so any person with basic diy skills can get the job done in a few hours. Select the location for the tool center and then use a hanger to lock it into place tightly.
