I wanted to put a pegboard behind my studio door to hold audio cables and headphones, but I didn't want to have look at an ugly sheet of pegboard all the time. What is a boy to do? Well, this boy went ahead and laser cut his own pegboard out of acrylic and painted on a really awesome graphic. This makes the whole thing much more suitable to hang on my wall. Why settle for just a pegboard when you can also have a work of art?
