I did not like the way my clamps were organized. When I built my shop, I threw something together quickly just to get by. How often have we all done that? I finally got tired of it, so here is what I came up with. It is all solid soft maple, including the backs. I did that in order to use the backside also because the racks set on an existing cabinet in the middle of my shop. I will post the back side as a separate project.

I custom made the racks for my clamps, but I tried to make them as versatile as possible too.

Thanks for looking!

Kent, this looks like a pretty solid clamp rack. This certainly will keep them organized and ready to use.

I am quite jealous of the clamp selection and fantastic organizer for said clamps! There might have to be something like this in my near future. Good work!
