I got tired of crushed fingers and bruised knuckles fighting my clamp pile So i made a fresh pot of coffee and me and augie dog headed to the shop..It took two days, but I’ve got the clamps standing at attention for now, plus a solid little 62×30 assembly table that tucks under the cut bench…as you can see, one idea ended up keeping the wife warm instead!

You have organized your clamps nicely with this set-up. I have got to do something similar as a number of mine are simply in a pile leaning against the shop wall. And it is nice to see that you put your “scrap” to good use. :)

Can’t have enough clamps.

You have a nice shop bill.

Keep on organizing while your not too busy with a project, that works for me.

Thanks for sharing your new clamp racks.

Say hello to Augie for us. LOL

My first one also ended up as fire wood!
Used plywood on the next atempt. Much better, but yours looks great!

Yeah. That’s kind of low … hitting us like that … with LOTS of clamps AND organization, too.

Bad dog! :-)

Scratch the puppy for me, will ya? If I were there, I’d do it myself. Unfortunately ….

Thanks for the pics! Very, very nice!

thanks all! If I only had more 2×4’s and plywood… The sawblades are drivin’ me nuts now, time to go make more sawdust, it’s amazing how much stuff you find when you gather it up to organize, (9 caulk guns?..jeez). Be careful nbeener, I scratched her ears and gave her a scrap to chew..

Well done on the organized clamp system… all you need now is MORE CLAMPS… you can never have enough… I used 18 the other day doing one glue up… it’s just crazy… I’m at 40 plus clamps and counting… time to go shopping for more I suppose… lol
Oh, and that doesn’t include all the little spring clamps, quick grips, etc… can’t count high enough to include all them… lol
NBeener, 41 routers for a1Jim??? WOW, 1 too many… lol

I have to ask the obvious question: what didn’t you like about how the 1st version was turning out?

I need to show this picture of your clamps to my wife. She thinks I have too many clamps. A organized shop is the only way to go. Thanks for posting.

God Bless
