Obviously I don’t have many clamps (yet!) but I like to keep organized (and I had free wall space, a travesty in any shop lol!) so I made this basic rack. I combined a few ideas I’ve seen in various woodworking magazines to make each section. The whole unit is about 4’ across and 3’ high. I’m planning to dissassemble it in the spring since I want to redo the whole shop area with cleat-based cabinets and racks, but until I get around to that this will do the trick.

Great job, I have clamps all over the shop. Need to get them in one spot like yours.

Cool, I had to make one as well as my shop was getting so cluttered I was tripping over them. I start out organized but by the end of a project things are all over! LOL Nice work.

Very nice! Question though…..what’s “wall space”? (said with tongue firmly in cheek)
