Redoing my clamp rack to better accommodate my needs.
I wanted the shelves to be extremely strong and have a good size lip to keep stuff from falling off while I move the rack around. I typically over-engineer my projects, but with as much weight as this rack has on it I am very glad I built it solid. I glued and screwed (with pocket holes using my Kreg Jig) the A-Frames, but I decided to keep the shelves without glue so I could break down or change the rack. The long shelf sides are the rails that connect the A-Frames so I put 2 pocket hol...
What started out as a simple clamp rack project grew into an entire assembly center. I started out wanting a mobile rack for all of my clamps to make assembly easier and avoid the running back and forth for clamps and/or having the work table covered in clamps so there is no room to work. The next thing I knew the project grew into the idea of having everything needed for assembly on a mobile cart – clamps, glue, biscuit joiners and biscuits, dowels jigs and dowels, pocket jig pocke...
I’m somewhat partial to having everything in drawers or cabinets, mostly just to keep it safe and keep the dust out of stuff, but some things just need to hang on the wall!

Also have most of my longer measuring tools hung up. The smaller stuff is in a drawer in the toolbox. I also organiz...
Just a short video on a space saving pipe clamp rack I came across. Links are annotated in the video on where to see the designers pictures. If you are like me, this is just the kind of rack to help with limited space and be functional and affordable.Thanks for watching. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvFh2aANno8
Got a very late start to the day so ended up taking up most of my time with the Clamp Rack Sketch Up Design. Tomorrow I will brave the rain to go out to the lumber pile outside and see how many 1×6’s I have out there. The design is basically to hold everything I might need for assembly: Clamps of all sorts, Glue, Tape, fasteners. I designed for use with Fir 1×3 & Birch Plywood, however any 1×3 and 3/4” & 5/8” sheet stock will work. I will be using M...
