Just a quick project I finished tonight to store my new parallel clamps. Nothing fancy, just some scrap 3/4” and 1/2” plywood I had laying around glued and screwed together with butt joints. It’s designed to hold the Bessey Revo and Revo Jr clamps I’ve got so far with some room for more. The shelf will hold the KP blocks and the extender brackets I’ve got coming eventually when they are back in stock.

I went with a width that allowed me to screw into 2 studs at 24” centers and ended up at around 28” with the layout I came up with. After finding countless similar projects online I layed it out with 1/2” wide slots spaced 2 1/2” for the top rack and slots in the middle for the bottom rack so 1” spacing between 1/2” wide slots.

Neat job rocky...

Unfortunatelly, may I suggest you take note of the time it took to make it and earmark future time x2 (at least) for future clamp rack expansion(s)... you’ll find (if you haven’t already), one CANNOT have enough clamps!

LBD, I have 10 clamps there, TEN!!! Who needs more than that? JK of course, when I clamped up a countertop I’m working on I had every clamp I’ve got on it, all those parallel clamps and all my f-type clamps and that was almost enough.

Thanks for the kind words everyone, hope it helps someone.

TEN clamps???... hell, poor mormons have more wives…

One of my very first blogs here at LJ.

... and my collection has nearly doubled,

though that doesn’t include my pipe clamps and benchtop hold downs.. but then I only have about 8 each of those… not worth counting.

Not often… but on occasions, I have reached for more..

You will eventually surrender to the dark side!

I am a believer that whomever dies with the most clamps is the winner. Even tho, they won’t know it. LOL. Mel

When it comes to clamps, both quality and quantity matters…
