  1. Clamp rack, finally!

    I finally built a clamp rack to round up all my stray clamps. Basically just a frame, 2×4s on the sides and 1×4s on top and bottom. I just notched the top 1×4 to accommodate Jorgensen bar clamps. I also rabbeted the 2×4s with my circular saw, mostly 'cause I felt like playing with it. I...
  2. clamp rack

    Another LJ inspired project. I couldn't see spending the unreal amount of cash to buy a premade rack. Saw a few examples from other members and started digging in the scrap pile. For the cost of four wheels at Harbor Freight I made this simple but quite effective rack. My favorite part is...
  3. Dust Collector Clamp Rack Cart

    I have a two car garage that I must share with one of our vehicles, so everything is on wheels to make moving things easier. This dust collector is no different, with locking caster, as well. I have very little space for more tools until I move so everything must make the best use of the square...
  4. Clamp rack wall

    This is my new clamp wall and the racks I made to accommodate the not so abundant collection of clamps. Each on of these are modular and are 25" in length. They are mounted to the studs and to each other to make one continuous rack that has many different styles of clamps to be held in them...
  5. Another Shop Project..Clamp racks

    My garage is more organized now than it's ever been but I'm still working on it. This was my latest project. I originally had my pipe clamps mounted horizontally on the wall but it wasn't convenient so I found this pipe clamp rack idea. It's was so easy to make with a 2 X 4 and 1/2" steel rod...
  6. Ultimate Clamp Rack

    Hey, guys! I built the Ultimate Clamp Rack for JET & Powermatic Woodworking. I live in Nashville and the JET/Powermatic training facility is just 30 minutes east in Lavergne, TN. I made this clamp rack to hold 36 JET parallel clamps for their shop and it only takes up 43" of wall space. The...
  7. A-Frame Clamp Rack

    Another A-Frame clamp cart, with a nod to Norm for inspiration. 6 ft tall. 2×4 construction with pocket joinery. The cant angle is 7 deg which is about perfect. Clamps hang on 1 in poplar dowels. Base is a furniture dolly from Harbor Freight $9.99. Can't buy 3 in casters this cheap. Hardest part...
  8. Simple Clamp Rack

    I finally got tired of not having a place to keep my clamps and made this out of some scrap plywood. It was a quick project that made a big difference around the shop.
  9. Wood Cookie Slicer

    Our R-tist wood buddy wanted more wood cookies to paint scenes on. We built a sled for the Bandsaw to safely cut branches into thin cross sections. This included a quick clamp and V groove cut into the sled base with a miter bar attached on the underside of the sled. The miter bar slides in...
  10. Some more lumber storage projects!

    Well, after Christmas I looked around the shop and realized that I had way to much short wood on hand. I keep cutting other wood down to small sizes as I need, instead of using all of this stuff. Mainly cause it was to hard to find. I do have a bad case of keepus crappus that I shouldntus…..plus...
  11. Bessey F-Style and Parallel Clamp Rack

    I became frustrated with my nice F-Style Bessey Clamps either hanging from a hot water pipe in the basement (not a good idea) and my parallel clamps leaning against a wall where I invariably tripped or knock them over. I had been thinking about building or even buying a clamp rack for a long...
  12. Plywood Clamp Rack

    Here are a couple pictures of a clamp rack that I just finished. I got this idea from Willwall and modified it. Here is his version: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/6504. I made it out of 1/2 inch BCFir plywood. I think that this a great addition to the shop because my clamps are always...
  13. Assembly Rack

    I have started a series of Blog posts describing this project and detailing the design and construction process.
  14. Clamp Storage rack

    Clamp Storage Rack As with my glue up station I bounced ideas for clamp storage around in my head for years. Only within the last couple months did I finally tackle the project. I now have a space for most any type of clamp I have in the shop. I always seem to be adding to my clamp collection...
  15. French cleat racks (clamps, chisels, etc)

    When I first set my shop up last year, I installed a French cleat system around the room. It's a simple system using 1x pine with a 45 degree bevel cut on the top. Each of the racks has a mating piece of 1x pine with the 45 degree bevel reversed from the strip on the wall. It's easy to create...
  16. Bar clamp rolling rack

    This is the new bar clamp rack that i just finished.3/4'' MDF with all kreg joints and glued.It holds 60 clamps sets on 2'' locking casters,I may need to upsize to a larger caster as this thing is very heavy. cant wait to use it on the next project.
  17. Clamp Rack

    ok so this is officially my third attempt at organizing my clamps. First I had one rack on the wall (not posted), then I made a mobile clamp rack (too big, heavy, and hard to move around), and now I have three wall mounted racks. It's funny how things seem like they will work for you on paper...
  18. Clamp Rack - Quick Win

    Tired of tripping over my clamps on the floor so I built a clamp rack and installed into the corner of the shop. Made from an old piece of plywood and a moldy and mostly sapwood walnut board. 1/2 day build time. Inspiration from Jay Bates.
  19. Jigs from scrap - crosscut sled, spline, taper, clamp rack

    These are a few jigs I made from scrap. Nothing special. Just thought I'd add to the store of information here. The spline jig is very simple and pretty much self-explanatory. Just runs alongside the fence. As much effort as I put into getting the cross-cut sled fence perfectly square when...
  20. Problem + Woodworker = French Cleat Clamp Rack

    My shop is an outbuilding constructed from cinder blocks. I suppose it has advantages, but a big disadvantage is that whenever you want to attach something to the wall it is difficult and time consuming. Over the last several weeks I have bought and built a significant amount of new clamps...
