I invested in some 40” Bessey Clamps and they were still in the box because I had no where to put them .. I don’t imagine me owning too many of these clamps as they are so exspensive but what I do own (2 right now ) I want to take really good care of these.
So I built this little unit to contain them and some of there accesories that I might buy in the future ..
The dimensions is 24” wide x 6” deep x 15” high..
It’s made from some leftover 3/4” sanded plywood they I had left around from my drill holder unit ..
It’s basically a left & right sides with a rabbitted top and 1 through dado and 1 stopped dado in each side..
I made the fiingers out 3/4” plywood and placed ( i used a 3/8” drill bit and then a hand saw to cut the fingers out)a 3” wide solid support under the fingers to re-in force and then placed 3 little 2×3 supports under the clamp resting shelf to give it some rigidity ..
This unit only holds 10 clamps and like I said if I even own that I would consider myself lucky…
There great clamps especially on wide board glue ups.. I’ll get some smaller ones I don’t think I’ll need any longer ones then the 40”..
I hope you like it and it was a fun build
