Anyone else need a pretty portable peg board display case?? (shown above, 2 cases opened side-by-side) I described what I wanted to Trevor, and he came up with something even better than I pictured. These make for great jewlery cases, but they can work for tons of other things as well.
A quick tutorial how-to:
Update – – lots of people asked about the size. Trevor bought one piece of pegboard and had Lowes cut it into 3rds (easier to transport). Then for one case he took one of those thirds and cut it in half, making 2 sides to the case. Each side is 24inches across the top, 30 inches from top to bottom.
Make a frame with 1x2s:
Lay a piece of pegboard onto the frame and screw it into place.
Repeat, so you have 2 sides. The hold the two sides together and put on a “piano” hinge – a hinge that is really long. That’s it! Paint to for a clean look.
It’s got a latch to hold it shut – – that way everything can stay hanging up – I just shut it and go, and know that nothing will fall out because of the frame around it all.
I added a long handle so I could carry it over my shoulder:
Awesome, right?!?! I have two cases and can carry one on each shoulder.
