You’ll need a piece of pegboard, some dowels, two furring strips and drawer sliders, along with other basic supplies like screws, a drill and wood glue. Depending on what you already have, the whole project should cost around $15-$20. Once you’ve fastened the sliders to the sides of a cabinet and built a base for the pegboard to sit on (click below for detailed instructions), you can arrange your dowels in whatever conformation works for your collection of storage containers. If your collection grows, you can simply move the dowels around to accommodate the new additions.
