Hey, guys! I just finished up a parallel clamp rack for the shop and I love this thing! I used a stacked approach vs. the typical side by side approach and it offers some massive space savings (I got the idea from Dyami from Penultimate Woodshop).

The rack is 38-3/4” wide and will fit 24 parallel clamps stacked 6 deep in 4 bays. It will also hold 12 bar clamps stacked 6 deep in 2 bays. If you used the side by side method you’d need 48” just for the parallels alone! I also made a top to it so I can use the upper shelf for some added storage.

If you want to see the full build walkthrough and download free plans for it you can check out the Space Saving Parallel Clamp Rack post on my site FixThisBuildThat.com.

Thanks!
Brad

Hello Brad

Your collection is great ( I want the same !!!)

Nice build and thanks a lot for the pattern

You can use the top and the two sides to range another pieces

I like your concept

Thanks for sharing

Very nice. If your space allows for the extra depth it sure is more compact than placing them side by side.
Well done.
