« Part 2: Assembly Cart - Shelf Assembly Part 3 of Workshop Projects series no next part

Here is the Assembly Rack fully loaded – I still have to sand and finish the rack but I wanted to see it fully loaded first. The rigidity and the mobility are great and I am very happy with its utility.

The back of the rack holds every long clamp I own and all of the short clamps go on the rails.

On the right side I hang my mounted Kreg Jig – I can clamp this mounted jig anywhere I need it or take it onto a job site.

The left side holds my 90 degree corner clamps, corner vises, and bar clamp blocks.

The top shelf holds all of my glues and adhesives, biscuits, and dowels within easy reach.

The mid shelf holds pocket hole screws, nails for my pneumatic nailers, dowel jigs, pencil cup, tape measure, square, and a place to set my drills.

The bottom shelf keeps my pneumatic nailers, biscuit joiners, Kreg Jig kit, and bucket of face frame clamps.

I now have everything I need for assembly on a roll-around cart – well almost – it is only missing the compressor and the kitchen sink!

That’s a really nice clamp rack. Can I ask a few questions for clarity?
The oak stock, is that 3/4” oak, and how wide are the shelf edges?
I think I’d like to build one just like it,
thanks for sharing
