Conquer the paper tiger! This easy trick for adding shelves is great for offices and craft rooms. Any shelf, cupboard or cabinet could be a candidate for a paper stacker. What a great craft paper organizer this would be. If only I had known about this back when I was into scrapbooking!
By using a pegboard jig, (a jig is a carpentry term for template), to mark and drill holes for shelf pegs, any box or cabinet can become shelving. I found purchasing laminated shelf boards to be pricey, so for my Target office credenza I used a mahogany lauan wood panel from Lowes (about $12.00), cut it on my table saw and stained it with Minwax Kona stain that I already had and voila!
The easy trick is that the pegboard lines up the holes for the shelf pegs precisely. If you tried to just measure and mark the drill holes by hand it likely would turn out wonky and would take a long time to even attempt it.
What you need:
Drill and drill bit
Lauan plywood, or shelf boards
Saw to cut the shelf boards
Paint or stain
Use masking tape to mask the holes you are not using and you can very quickly drill the holes without making any mistakes.
Let me know of any other interesting applications that you can think of to use a pegboard jig.
