“You can never have too many clamps” is very true! But, you can sometimes run out of room to keep them out of the way. This is my solution to that problem. TA-DA!! Don’t know if anyone else has done this before, but I thought this up several years ago and call it the Clamp-Master 6000. Pretty simple, actually, as you see from the pics. I’d make it again using a keyhole router bit, but I didn’t have one at the time, so I just grooved a couple pieces of clear pine, screwed them onto a strip of 1/4” plywood (paneling, I think it was…) and T-grooved another piece of pine to fit that. I then screwed another strip of plywood/paneling onto the bottom to clamp my clamps onto. Slide it under your workbench and they’re out of the way, but easily-accessible. You can take it all the way out and take it with you where you need it, too. Handy-dandy! Maybe I should patent this?
