Unfortunately, I have to do my favorite hobby in the garage. I am trying to consolidate my tools and utilize my space as best a possible. I started by making a pipe clamp rack, charger station, and air compressor station. I mounted them on the wall and I able to place my trusty RIDGID table saw underneath. I am starting phase two soon. (This is still a work in progress. Some tools are ‘temporarily’ placed where they are until the final destination is built.) If you would like the plans for the clamp rack, please send me a private message with an email address and I can send them to you.

Randy, Looks like a good use of space.Getting the Air Compressor up out of the way is a nice idea. Shops are just never big enough or so it seems.

A great use of space and an even better sign.

Great job, all that is missing is the ‘broken toy’ projects. Have tools, will fix.

nicely done- I like the fact that you can see where everything is, and have easy reach for what you need.

So far I really like the setup…I can find ‘stuff’easier and it is up out of the way, clearing the floor area.
P.S. Thanks for all nice comments.

Very nice. I particularly like the compact clamp rack. Do you have any plans or details on that?

How does the clamp rack work out for you? It would seem that you might need to move some out of the way to get to some of the others.

I do not have to remove any clamps. There is enough ‘play’ in the clamps on top that they will swing to the side to remove clamps behind them. I do have details that I can email. Send me a private message with an email address and I will email them to you. Thanks!
