I got this pipe clamp rack idea from this months Wood magazine. I decided to do double rows, instead of a single row. This made the 3/4 inch plywood feel a bit flimsy. So I used some 11 by 1 by 3/4 oak scrap to mount and reinforce the racks. I might have gotten a bit carried away. But it is a solid safe setup. It is nice to have my pipe clamps in one place. And not tucked into every corner and in my way.

This is a great concept and your version looks really nice. It seems like a great way to free up valuable wall space in the shop.

Looks great! I really like that you made two rows to fit more clamps into the space.

Great idea and looks like it holds a lot of clamps with the double rows. Don’t think I would try it in a shop with 10 ft ceilings though , be kind of tough to reach.

Nice, have to see about using this in my shop as most would admit I need more space!
