Picture of Linear Pegboard Toolbox

Ever wanted a way to carry around the tools you need without having to dig through a big pile of them. Well then this is the project for you. You can change up sizes or materials based on your own personal preference.

Step 1: Materials and tools needed for this project.

Picture of Materials and tools needed for this project.

For this project, some of the materials I used can be exchanged for something different.

Materials used:

  1. Pegboard
  2. 4 Brass Hinges
  3. Brass Chain Latch
  4. Brass Screws
  5. Drill
  6. Screwdriver
  7. Poplar
  8. Pegboard Hooks

any size and kind of wood will do, I'm just showing the basic idea of this toolbox. But for those of you who don't want to customize, the poplar I used was about 1.5" wide and some weird measurement for the thickness.

You can add some small folding legs if it falls from the wind. Probably won't happen, but just an idea :)

Huh. I didn't think of that.

I made almost the exact same thing about 15 years ago. There is a picture here: https://www.instructables.com/id/Tool-Storage-Hack...

Wow, I think the biggest difference is that yours seems more thought out.

Do the tools fall out of their places if you lay the box down or carry it in a vehicle on a bumpy road?

That's a very interesting idea. Thanks for sharing!

That is a great idea. I never thought about making a modular peg board system. This would be a great way to have a portable tool storage system.
