Hi, I want to put peg board on 2c or 3 sides of this cinder block chimmney. the the block is between joists so I can fasten to wood at the top but should i fasten to the floor or can I fasten directly to the block, what and how. The weight will not be to heavy, mostly lighter tools thanks Mike

Peg board should have a frame behind it. This way it let it sit away from the blocks giving the pegs room to be inserted and the frame will keep it from bowing. Since it's width is narrow, just a perimeter frame will be sufficient. You can attach it to blocks using some liquid nails, or if you have one, a hammer drill and some concrete screws.

Oh, if you make a frame to do 3 sides, you can use the 4th side to connect the frame together at the top and bottom, thus eliminating the drill,screws and glue....

Is the chimney in use, if so for what? Does it have a liner? Does it get hot? We finally had to replace our old cinder block chimneys with stainless steel. If it's in use I'd be careful, but that's just me.

That's good. Ours was for wood and in time creosote came right through cracks. I lasted a good long time but stainless is great.
