Step 1: The Idea
The idea is to make a roll-up pegboard so you can have your tools organized everywhere you go.
Step 2: Supplies
You can make your roll as wide and as long as you disire.
We've made the roll 16 inches long and 32 inches wide, but the dimentions are up to you.
For this project you will need:
A sheet of MDF of 3mm thick (size depends on the dimentions of you're own roll)
Some scrap wood (to make a hole jigg)
A piece of textile (an inch wider and longer as your desired roll dimentions)
A 4mm drillbit
A 4 mm nail
Asheet of isolation foam (size depends on the desired roll dimentions)
Step 3: First Step: Cutting Strips of MDF
1. Cut your sheet of MDF to the desired length, in our case 16 inches.
2. Cut the remaining sheet of MDF into 1 inch wide strips, using a table saw.
Step 4: Second Step: Drill the Holes
1. Make al hole cutting jig.
Make a jigg to drill holes 0.5 inches form the side and 1 inch apart. So you can drill the holes trough multiple strips at once at the same accuuracy. Making a template like this can improve the accuracy.
2. Drill all the holes.
Using the hole cutting jig drill all the holes in all the strips of MDF.
Step 5: Third Step: Line Up the Strips and Clean Up the Holes
1. Lay down the strips and make sure they are aligned as good as possible
2. Use a chizel or a scraping tool to clean up the holes and make the strips as flat as possible
3. Use a moisterized towel to clean up all the strips so the surface of the stips are dust free.
4. Make sure the strips are aligned and use painters tape to stick them together so they cant move anymore.
Step 6: Fourth Step: Cut the Textile and Add Glue to Both Pieces
1. Cut the textile to size and make sure to make the textile 0.5 inches larger than te MDF stips.
Cut out the corners so they can be folded over in the next step.
2. Turn the strips around so the painters tape is facing down.
3. Apply contact glue to the strips and to the texttile
4. let it dry for 10 minutes
Step 7: Fifth Step: Add the Textile to the Wooden Strips
1. After 10 minutes of drying, place the textile over the wood and make sure that it is aligned correctly.
2. Pres the textile firmly to the wooden strips and make sure to remove alle air bubbles and wrinkages.
3. Turn the whole thing around and remove the painters tape.
4. Apply glue to the protruding fabric and to a small part of the sides of the wooden strips
5. let it dry for 10 minutes
6. Fold the proturding fabric over and press it frimly to the wooden strips.
7. Cut the folded fabric to the with of the strips so the roll is more flexible.
NOTE: don't cut to deep or you will cut through both sides of the fabric
Step 8: Sixth Step: Make Holes
1. Find a nail or other metal rod of 4 mm diameter and make it pointy
2. Heat up the nail until it is red hot.
3. Poke the nail from the back side through the front side.
I recomand to use pliers or a vise grip to hold the nail
The hot nail wil melt a hole in to te fabric so it can't untangel anymore
Step 9: Seventh Step: Glue the Foam to the Strips
1. Add contact glue to the back side of the wooden strips and to the flat side of the foam
2. let the glue dry for 10 minutes
3. Press the foam and the woodens trips frimly together.
4. Cut the foam to size using a very sharp blade
5. Cut to foam into strips of 1 inch so the roll is more flexibel
7. Add a span strap to hold the roll together when it is rolled up
8. what something custom? follow the next steps!!
Step 10: Eighth Step: Custom Belt
1. Take a regular peg hook
2. Rebend it like in the picture
3. sew two hooks and loop strips together with the sicky sides facing outwards
4. Feed the hooks and loops throug the peghook
5. add the peg hook to the board
6. roll it up !
