When I was a kid I thought these wood clamps were worthless. I have since found them to be wonderful additions to my arsenal of clamps. I got tired of them laying around and came up with this idea. It’s just scrap pieces of hickory screwed and glued. I tried to dress them up with a little stain and varnish. My garage/shop is an all steel building. I wrapped the columns with a 2×10 and 1×10’s. Finally, I’ve got the clamps organized and no longer cluttering up my shop. Clutter drives me crazy and I’ve found that is often a short trip.

They are definitely not worthless, but, as a kid, I thought that as well

Beautiful job, thanks for showing me how it’s done.
