This is a some simple clamp racks that I made to hold all of my clamps instead of clamping them to my bench. They are made from some 1/4” plywood and some 2×4’s that I had sitting around. I measured the width of each clamp and marked it out on the plywood and used my band saw to cut out the slots. The plywood is just screwed to the top of the 2×4 and then I screwed the 2×4 to the cabinet from the inside to hold the weight. This was a 15 minute build and I’m not sure why I didn’t do it earlier.

I just set some 1/4 ply under my boom box and called it good. All my spring clamps were fine there until I came in one morning wondering why I was hearing the radio from down on the floor…. guess I should have spent five seconds to screw it to the top of the cabinet.

Thanks for the inspiration. Gotta do something to keep the disorganization dragon at bay!

15 minutes or 15 days, it works and looks great, and you got it done!

thanks for the comments guys, I like this design because it can be easily adapted to any size clamps. I also gave my self some extra spaces to add some more clamps because you can never have too many clamps.
