If you need to find extra storage for your tools, under your workbench is the perfect place. This D.I.Y. underbench storage project is a simple way to keep everything in easy reach and store it neatly away.
Start by measuring the height and width underneath your workbench top. In our example the boards are 625mm x 540mm. Then draw these dimensions onto your pegboard.
When you have marked up the height and width onto your pegboard, draw the handle shape into one corner as shown.
Now use your jigsaw to cut the shape out of your pegboard, following the guidelines.
Handy Hint: Make sure you cut your board on a trestle and clamp it down securely in place.
Screw in the 100mm blocks at the base of your workbench. Space them apart enough so that they can hold your pegboard in place and allow you to pull them out easily.
Now you can hang your hooks in place. These come in packs of assorted shapes and sizes so you can hang different types of tools.
