I needed to rebuild my clamp rack. I started with a Stumpy Nubs design but modified it to meet my needs.
Overall, the rack measures 37” wide, 30” tall and 14-1/2” deep. There are 154 clamps in the picture ((137 on the rack (parallel jaw, F-style, quick-clamps, Klick clamps, & spring clamps), 12 strap clamps and 5 wooden jaw clamps). It’s made from a half sheet of Baltic birch plywood and some scrap soft maple for bracing/support.

The amount and variety of clamps is even more impresive than rack itself. I realy envy you.

Very nice Pat! I made a very similar three layer rack. The difference is it serves as doors to my secret stash room! Someday my wife may discover it. :)

I love the compactness of that storage, space saving to the max 8^)

One huge load on your wall, but I’m sure you know that! The problem is now what do you do when you buy more clamps 8^)

Nice. Have you ever calculated the weight of all those clamps?
