I have recently started setting up my first woodworking shop and have made a start on adding some storage for my small but precious collection of tools. Here in Thailand any quality tools are imported making them more expensive than buying the same item in the west.
I built this simple clamp storage rack using some rubber wood left over from my footstool project and a piece of twisted Thai plywood. It is hung on the shop wall using a French cleat, something I had never heard of until I started reading through this site, LumberJocks is great place for a beginner such as myself to learn new things.
I’d like to claim that my other 100 clamps were in use on a big project, but that is my entire clamp collection at the moment. When I started woodworking I promised not to go crazy buying things I don’t need. I have stuck with the promise so far and have used every single tool I have, I’ll buy or make new clamps as I need them.
