If anyone knows of any designs for f clamp storage. I want to make storage for the clamps and will include it in a podcast It will also have to include the weight of of two heavy 500mm f clamps

My design is 1/2” plywood that is notched for the clamps and is screwed to 3/4” plywood at a right angle for a fastening cleat. Each spot holds two clamps sideways. I have a pic but I can’t seem to figure out how to attach it to this post . Any thoughts on how to do this?.

Here’s my two cents: Honestly, I think people spend way too much time and effort on clamp storage. One of the woodworking magazines this month (sorry I can’t remember which one) had a great tip – buy some aluminum electrical conduit, cut it to length and attach it to studs in the wall with the little brackets that are sold to hold them. Simplicity itself. In my shop I have attached 2×2s across studs and hang the clamps by hooking the handle over the 2×2. Cheap and easy. You can hang any clamp this way. Let me know if you want a pic and I can take one.

Of course if you want mobile clamp storage that’s a different ballgame. There are hundreds of plans out there on the www

Good luck!

Like Lakey said, keep it simple. One of these is a simple f clamp rack,

the other is just boards across the floor joist.

Tim, do you still say “you can never have too many clamps?” That is an impressive collection.

Have your say...
