Project Information

Built a french cleat clamp wall for over 200 clamps but had a very limited space so I nested things around each other as much as possible. Wanted the spring clamps to be nested into each other, but still be able to remove the trays of clamps and have them freestand wherever I need them. Finally figured out this design that does both.

Lessons learned
- plywood is a pain (which I knew but somehow ignored), next time I'll use solid woodl
- should have made the trays slightly wider. Turns out the grey clamps are a bit wider than the others, so they have to be in the top slot, dont' fit in the lower slots.

That's very clever. No matter the size of shop, storage space is always at a premium, it seems, so any suggestion that offers a way to reduce the amount of wall space consumed is always welcome.

Being able to carry the clamps to your work area is an added bonus.
