Bigger tape measure holder for pegboard

So after making the original tape measure tray for pegboard, I realized that I have a bunch of tapes and two of them are way larger and won’t fit the original design. So here is a bigger one. It is stronger than the original and I’ve added a cutout for the tapes hook. It will fit at least up through a 35’ fat max.
It also kerfs up a bit looser so you won’t have to hammer it together.
Make it from any med :proofgrade: scraps you have.
This time I have only included one side and one front/back as they are identical. Just make two of each.

Thanks for sharing all the peg board pieces

Thanks for this design. If I don’t have large tape measures is my workshop deficient? I think small flower pots could fit in these and bring organic color to an otherwise steely display of tools.

One wishes one had a peg board to put all your designs on! :grinning:

By no means. I only have them because I inherited one and I bought the other for some unique features, not its size. I don’t see much use for one over 12’ unless you are working construction.

That would be very cool. If this is the size that works out for that and you don’t need the hook cutout edit it out.

Well get on it! :smile: It is less than $10 for a 2X4’ sheet at home improvment stores or if you just have small areas where you can put it cut some on the :glowforge:.

May just have to do that – I like organization in all its forms - especially :glowforge:'d ones.

Yeah I normaly photo the stuff but I’d not glued these up yet. Fusion 360 does fantastic at rendering. I’ve seen some where the person put a little time into it that I had a hard time telling it was not a photo!

At first glance I wondered what sort of exotic wood you were using on your peg board brackets.

Just saw this, as I am in the process of reorganizing my craftroom. I have a rolling Kobalt tool station that has built-in pegboards on 3 sides, a lot of drawers (in which I plan to keep my boards and acrylic) and some open shelves. In order to use the drawers, I need to empty them out, so am looking for things to hold all my stuff. This will work perfect for my tape measures, as I have several and can stack them side-by-side. Thanks for sharing your file!
