I have 60+ clamps that are littered on the wood floor, stashed on odd ball shelving, and ontop of tables. Basically, wherever there was a heap of real estate. So, after my lumber rack and router mortise jig completion, I turned to clamp storage. I considered going wall mount or on a cart: I came to the decision my wall space was more premium real estate. Cart it is.
Here are my clamps I have acquired in 2 years (not including Pony and odd ball clamps):
Once I decided to go with a cart, I am loosely going to follow LeeInAZ. First, the base foundation of the cart where all heavy clamps will find a home has to be Uber Strong as I am unsure how much total weight the foundation will have to hold. So I laminated 3 boards of 3/4” plywood and used 5” castors. Also, needed a support structure other than the vertical 4’x4’ for added stability and future swinging doors. This is where I stopped for the weekend:
I will allow the 50”+ clamps to extend above the top, or put an additional 3/4” piece uptop and then cut out holes. Unsure yet.
