Step 1


With a tape measure, determine the maximum dimensions of your pegboard wall.

Cut pegboard

Step 2

Cut pegboard

On the table saw, rip and crosscut the 4' x 8' sheet of pegboard so that it measures 1-5/8" less than the opening in both directions.

Create backer frame

Step 3

Create backer frame

Using a mitre saw, cut 1 x 2 clear select pine into 4 pieces (butt ends) to fit around the outside back edge of the pegboard. This creates a space behind the pegboard to accommodate utensil hanging hooks.

Cut front trim pieces

Step 4

Cut front trim pieces

For the pegboard front frame, rip 3/4" MDF into four 1-1/4" strips.

Finish trim

Step 5

Finish trim

Finish the edge of the trim using a trim router and a 45° chamfer bit.

Prime and paint

Step 6

Prime and paint

Prime and paint the pegboard and MDF strips prior to assembly.

Assemble front frame

Step 7

Assemble front frame

To create the frame, use a mitre saw to mitre-cut the corners of the MDF pieces to wrap the backed pegboard.

Step 8

Attach frame

Attach the frame flush to the back edge of the project using carpenter's glue and 1-1/4" 18-gauge brad nails.

Hang on wall

Step 9

Hang on wall

Fix the framed pegboard to the wall using 2" screws and drywall plugs.
