Cut List & Parts

  • 10 Shelves, top and bottom , 3/4" x 11-1/4" x 17"
  • 2 Sides , 3/4" x 11-1/4" x 72"


  • Cut shelves

    You can either use additional 1 x 12's to make the 17" long shelves or 3/4" plywood. I used up some leftover 3/4" plywood and shelving that I had in my woodpile to make mine.

  • Drill pocket holes

    Drill three pocket holes on both short ends of two of the shelf pieces.

  • Attach top and bottom

    Using glue and pocket screws, attach a shelf to the ends of the 1 x 12" to make the top and bottom of the shelving unit.

  • Drill shelf pin holes

    Using the Kreg Shelf Pin Jig, drill shelf pin holes along the inside of the shelf sides.

  • Attach back of shelving unit

    Cut a piece of the 1/4" plywood to fit the back of the shelving unit. Attach with glue and brad nails.

  • Optional pegboard sides

    First, screw in small blocks of wood into the four corners of each side and also to the middle along the edges. (see photo)

  • Pegboard sides part 2

    Cut and piece pegboard to fit each side of the shelving unit. Attach with staples or brad nails to blocks that were screwed in during the previous step.

  • Wheels

    Add the wheels using 1-1/4" drawer front screws. I use this type of screw with the wide head because of the size of the holes on the wheels.

  • Shelves

    Add the shelves and customize the placement of the shelves for your tools and storage needs.
