<p>Great idea. Please read this caution when building with MDF. Stay safe!</p><p></p><p>Lookup &quot;Caution when using MDF&quot;</p><p><a href="http://www.cnczone.com/forums/safety-zone/2471-caution-building-mdf.html" rel="nofollow">http://www.cnczone.com/forums/safety-zone/2471-cau...</a></p>
Thanks for sharing that link, being grateful that I learned at least two different things. #1 - being that when screwing into MDF, you should never be further than 25mm (about an inch) from the edges of the MDF (never once heard that b4), &amp; #2 - that the MDF is ALWAYS leaching out a little bit of that urea formaldehyde...
Brillant idea. One question though: why not using a peg board that you slice up?
<p>When you slice up a pegboard you lose 4mm of material with every slice because of the thickness of the sawblade. So when you do this, the distance between the holes in the strips is 4 mm smaller than 1 inch. There for the pegboard hooks won't be able to fit inside the holes.</p>
So, w/that being said, why not just compensate for those kerf cuts, by adding in 4mm for each cut that u calculate your material to receive? Thanks for sharing this awesome idea, btw. How long did that take for u to make? How long did it take for you to think it up? That's where a lot of my time is often eaten up by. Keep the instructables coming!
<p>I'm thinking of trying to slice a pegboard and add some sort of 4mm filler material to correct the distances. Maybe a 4mm wide plastic rod or something. Depending on the tools available, this could be a little easier to than cutting all those holes at just the right points. I'll share the results if I get around to it.</p>
<p>Great! </p><p>Thanks in advance</p>
<p>This was pretty impressive! Being new to some of this, I don't know what MDF is. Please explain?</p>
<p>MDF is medium density fibre board,</p><p><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medium-density_fibreboard">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medium-density_fibre...</a></p><p>It's a &quot;wood&quot; made from compressed wood fibres and glue</p>
<p>Really nice work, congratulations on you</p>
That's pretty clever! <br>I'll show this my dad
<p>What an ingenious idea. </p>
Thank you so much! Very genius
<p>Really smart, I like it</p>
<p>That's a really nice idea, I hope I will find the time to build my own one. </p><p>Thank you for sharing your idea :-)</p>
<p>Very clever!</p>
<p>This is a BRILLIANT idea! This is the best thing I have seen here in weeks, really genius. Thanks for sharing this with us, and it will definitely be coming soon to my work bench.</p><p>If you'd entered this Instructable in a contest you'd have my vote for sure!</p>
<p>Really nice work, congratulations on your first Instructable :-)</p>
<p>Very clever! I use a piece of plywood on a cleat system to move my stored tools around when necessary, but I certainly see the merit of this. Saves a lot of space! </p>
<p>That's a neat idea :) I have something similar for my sewing supplies.</p>
