If you don't have room for a workshop and you enjoy sitting on you Pacman Foot Stool (thanks allesflex) in front of your awesome HD projector making, making, making all day long then this instructable is for you.
This is my portable workstation. My aim was to build a well equipped micro workshop that is quick and easy to assemble and takes up very little room when stored.
Step 1: Pegboard
- Figure out how large you want your pegboard to be and cut some 3/16” (5mm) pegboard to size.
- This can be cut with a saw or it can be scored on both sides and snapped along the score line. Use a plane or a sanding block to tidy the edge.
- Stitch the pieces together with paracord, string or leather shoelaces
Step 2: Layout
- Lay the board flat and layout your tools to gain a rough idea of where they will go. Rather than pegs, use bolts with a nylock nut on either side of the board .
- The bolts are very strong and they won't move.
Step 3: Tool Tray
- Cut some more pegboard to make four sides of the tray.
- Use hot glue to hold the box in place while you stitch it together as tight as possible.
- I added some skewers in the corners to tighten the assembly. The leather will stretch over time so i will add more skewers as needed.
Step 4: Magnetic Strip
- To make the magnetic strip take a strip of pegboard, wood, cardboard or plastic and drill a hole large enough to fit the magnet.
- Glue the magnet in place with super glue and add a layer of electrical tape to protect the brittle magnets.
Step 5: Handle
The magnets from the magnetic strip on the other side are strong enough to hold some spare hack saw blades too :)
