I really needed to get these clamps off the ground. My idea was to have 4 clamps in each hanger so that future parallel clamp organization is …. organized :) I also wanted the heads of the clamps to be down low, not teetering up high. Had to be movable on french cleats. Also had to be secured because I have a knack for knocking things over if they are not protected fully. This is what I came up with to be done quickly as I must get cracking on my scroll saw and jointer (don’t mind the off-angle look… I’ll fix that tomorrow)

Looks good and you’ll know at a glance if any are missing.

the burl clock is separate :) Because I have a bad habit of redesigning my wood shop every couple months, I really needed these clamps off the valuable real estate of the floor onto a wall, but adjustable to make rum for the electrical outlets, 6” HVAC drops, and future wall cabinets, etc. And handling clamps with the head on top instead of down below always seemed like a balancing act. So this was the best I could come up with in a couple hours.
