Home made shelving thats specifically for pegboard takes the concept one step further. Use 2x4s and 1/4-in. L-hooks to make the shelves. Chamfer the top back edge so the shelf can be tipped in and tighten the L-hooks for a snug fit against the pegboard. Predrill the edges of the 2x4s with a 3/16-in. drill bit about every 6 in., and screw in threaded 2-in. L-hooks to match the holes in your pegboard. These shelves are surprisingly strong and can be sized to fit your specific needs.
