« Part 6: Dog Feeder Part 7 of Small Projects series Part 8: Jatoba and Marble Plant Stand »

A clamp rack was about the first thing I put up. Nine months later I’ve got more clamps and the old rack was overloaded.

I built this rack out of 8’ of 1×4, 8’ of 1×2 and a couple of feet of 2×2.

Completed project

The clamps hang by their handles and the 1×2 acts both as the hanger and end stops for the different clamp lengths. Spring clamps and the smaller clamps are on the sides. The whole thing is on wheels so I can move it around when needed.

Initially I just screwed the feet to the sides but the 4’ lever was too much force. I half lapped the foot into the side and it is much stabler.

You can never have enough clamps… I think clamps should be renamed rabbits...

If you took this picture yesterday, you’ll probably need a bigger stand next week… and if you took the picture last week, you probably already need a bigger stand.

-- If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD
