This is a stand-while-you-work setup. I built a 42 inch high countertop in an 8x5 foot L-shape for maximum usable work area with storage underneath. Slatwall comes in 4x8 sheets. I split it the long way and mounted it about 7 inches above the desktop. It gives me about 13 feet of 6-row slats right at eye height.
Most of the material is hanging from pegs various length. You can get all manner of other hangers, too. I added 8 inch shelf brackets at the top of the long wall with LED puck lights underneath.
If you have the luxury of a dedicated work area, this wasn't very expensive and no special tools required. Circular saw, driver drill, etc.
