Pick out your wood. We used 2 x 4 sheets of oak plywood.
1
Rip it to size. Ours was cut down to 17” width.
2
Map out your holes. We opted for 5/8” hole diameter, 3” apart. Use a punch tool to mark your holes.
3
Use a 5/8” fortsner bit and centering guide to drill your peg holes.
4
Place a piece of scrap wood under your board to avoid splitting.
5
Sand your pegboard.
6
The back will look rough but that’s ok. Sand off any jagged pieces.
7
Stain or paint your pegboards. I am using Hazelwood stain.
