I keep hearing you can never have too many clamps. I expect that’s because I always misplace these or are left in a pile to be sorted out. I was watching several videos on YouTube on clamp storage. Steve Ramsey redid his storage putting clamp racks behind a door. No such luck in my shop. Someone had made the “ultimate” clamp and wood storage cart, however, a 30” x 96” cart is out of the question also. However, several of the ideas from that build and a few others led me to my own quick build. 48” x 36” x 72” – less wheels.
This was a quick build so I could clear off my homemade assembly table which has been a clamp storage / dumping group the past month. I build the base from squared off 4×4s joined with angle brackets. The rack was made by creating 2×4s “A” frames joined by pocket hole screws and attached to the base by angle brackets. The clamp cleats are 1×2 oak and the first shelf (middle) is left over 3/4 birch play with a 1×2 to stiffen it. The back bottom clamp rack is for quick clamps and is used for stiffening the “A” Frame.
Two more shelves and a drawer system for corner, belt and other clamps ( “C-Clamps, etc. ) are planned as next phase.
