So, Mrs. Texas T was driving along when she saw this coat / shelf unit on the curb. She immediately thought of my need for a new clamp rack. I had to stop using the old one which was put up with a couple shelf brackets which started pulling out of the wall. We’re overseas and renting so I don’t have a shop, but am using a small bedroom for a shop. Space is a premium. I added a top board for spring clamps and am using the shelves for storage of various bits and tape, etc. Since I don’t want a repeat of the pulling out of the mortar wall, I added the German equivalent of 4X4s to either side to help hold a lot of the weight. I also glued on a strip of OSB leftover to the bottom shelf to support the weight of the pipe clamps. One L-bracket on either side seems to be working just fine to keep it against the wall. Thank you, Mrs. Texas T.
