  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. Out Feed Table with Clamp Storage

    For quite a while I've wondered if storing my clamps under my workbench would be more efficient - both from a space and availability perspective. Needing an outfeed table for my table saw gave me an opportunity to find out. It is a big success. I took a lot of inspiration from Steve Johnson at...
  4. French cleat clamp wall

    Considering the limited space in my small shop, I wanted to hang my clamps above the cement foundation and not block the parking of my major tools. To avoid the build-up of sawdust in the cleat I tapered the tops on a 45 degree angle as well.. Any spaces that are left over between the hanging...
  5. Clamp Storage

    Got tired of digging through the pile of clamps laying everywhere and decided to get organized. This rack was simple to make and works great. Every separate section of the bracket can hold up to 5 Bessey k-body style bar clamps so the capacity is pretty sweet. And there is room in front of the...
  6. 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.
  7. Clamp Rack

    When I first started woodworking, I got a few different sets of clamps and thought: alright this is great. Eventually my collection grew, and I thought: awesome! I reached a point where I had clamps all over the place: hanging off tools, pilled in the corner, and pretty much anywhere I could...
  8. Clamp Rack

    I have a garage shop and storage for bar clamps and pipe clamps is limited. With the space between the heating ducts in the garage this rack puts it to use. I got the idea from one of the wood wokring magazines and modified to work here.
  9. French Cleat Clamp Wall. FAIL! And why...

    Had over 200 clamps, stored in various places all over the shop, see the picture collage in the last picture. Build this french cleat clamp wall, right over my assembly bench, big improvement in my work efficiency, and it's a very effective use of space, with almost 100 clamps in a 3' by 3'...
  10. Clamp Storage for a French Cleat wall

    New clamp storage for the french cleat wall! Nothing really special here. 2×4s or 2×6s, or 3/4" solid wood affixed too 3/4" backing board with glue + 3" screws. The 90deg corner clamps are on a 2×2 which has been rotated 45deg.
  11. Assembly Cart with Air Compressor and Clamp Rack

    My family gave me some Dewalt bar clamps in the sizes I use most often for my birthday so I decided to make a 2 sided mobile rack for those as well as some Bessey and Jorgensen clamps I have (I build custom home/mobile audio speaker cabinets and use these 3 sizes regularly). 90% of the way...
  12. Mission Mantle Clock

    I wanted to share a mantle clock that I recently made as a birthday gift. It's a simple design from WoodSmith made mostly from QS White oak. It's a good project to use up all those short boards you've been furrowing away. I did not find a clock face that I felt did justice to a small A&C...
  13. Shop Improvements

    My first zero clearance plate for my old TS made of plexiglass, difficult to do due to a not flush surface underneath. A lot of routering. The old plate is the red one laying to the left. Pictures two and three are of your typical bench vise. My cousin bought it for $1 at a garage sale for me...
  14. Dead Simple Wall Clamp Storage Rack

    Here is a quick project that I put together to wrangle my F-clamps and Kreg Right Angle and Face Clamps. I made it out of scrap poplar lumber that I had laying around and used pocket hole joinery for a quick build. This design could be modified to hold most clamps and can be expanded as large...

  16. Easy Build Clamp Rack

    How to make a simple clamp rack. When you have a small shop like mine we have to use every bit of wall space available so I built this simple clamp rack behind my Drill Station. I make a horizontal clamp rack by cutting down a 2×4 and drilling 1/2 inch holes at an angle to except 4×1/2 inch...
  17. Clamp Storage Drawers

    Over the years the clamps accumulated from garage sales have found their way to several disorganized areas of the shop. I had clamps that I forgot about because they were buried under other things. The shop has more shelf space than available wall space and I like a clean, organized shop. I...
  18. Lumber, plywood, and clamp storage unit all-in-one

    This is a project from my old shop that I'm just getting around to posting. Been away for a while, but got inspired by a few buddies to post my projects. I got this idea out of the Wood America's Best Workshops magazine. Think it was the 2008 version. It's a very versatile rack that will...

  20. Space Saving Parallel Clamp Rack

    Hey, guys! I just finished up a parallel clamp rack for the shop and I love this thing! I used a stacked approach vs. the typical side by side approach and it offers some massive space savings (I got the idea from Dyami from Penultimate Woodshop). The rack is 38-3/4" wide and will fit 24...
