I had clamps scattered all over my shop before I decided to build this cart after looking at many ideas on the internet I roughly patterned it off the cart in ShopNotes issue 46. I kept the footprint rather small and the heads of the Bessey clamps rest on the bottom giving the cart a lower center of gravity. So far I am very pleased with it and it easily rolls to where I need it when clamping up items.

Very nice. I wish I had the floorspace to make one like that.

Looks like a good deal. Mine is the wedge shaped one, which I believe was one or two lives in front of the cube. As long as you can get enough clamps aboard to not walk a path in the floor going to one of those wall racks 70’ from your assembly table, you will really like it.

Very nice!
....personally though – I’m always worried that I’ll never collect enough clamps, so id be worried of making too confining of a space for them :D

very nice – wish I had the space, can never have enough clamps either – I keep mine hanging off the back wall in my shop which also works fine, however I like the portability on this design.
