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.

Cool for the Mrs to keep you in mind while she’s out and about.
It’s so much fun to repurpose things and for free is out standing.

Thanks htl, Mrs Texas T loves to grab stuff off the curb and refinish it or to make her own things. I’m trying to get her to post some of her work. She’s great at the shabby chic look.
