Clamp Storage Help

By: Erich Lage
Maximize your clamp storage with this layered rack.

06 02 03 It’s no secret that woodworkers love their clamps, and we can never have enough of them. But when I started to run out of room on my clamp rack, I had to get creative. To house all of the clamps I had accumulated, I built this clamp rack that you see here. What’s different about this clamp rack is that it’s multilayered. The rear clamp rack is mounted on the wall. Then I added a hinged door that has another clamp rack on it. This allows me to pack twice as many clamps in the same amoutn of wall space. 06 02 03a Building the clamp rack is simple. Both cases are assembled using rabbet joints and screws. Rabbets and dadoes in the sides accept the clamp holders. The holders themselves have slots cut in them to accept the clamps. The rear case is hung on the wall and a continuous hinge connects the two. A latch on the opposite side holds the front case closed. 06 02 05 Above are additional details that help you build the rack. 06 02 07 By opening the latch, the front rack swings open allowing access to the rear case.
