Another LJ inspired project. I couldn’t see spending the unreal amount of cash to buy a premade rack. Saw a few examples from other members and started digging in the scrap pile. For the cost of four wheels at Harbor Freight I made this simple but quite effective rack. My favorite part is not carrying clamps all over the shop to use them or put them away. Just drag the rack to the project instead. With the spare room it had on it I put my taper jig, frame square, clamping jigs and pocket hole screw jig on it as well.

Now with the money you saved over a pre made one, you can buy more clamps!

LOL, I already did. A 7/8×13 x 102” piece of Wenge fell into the cart as well for a coffee table project I’m doing for the wife. Hey she picked it out. I just smiled and said, “Yes dear”.

I’ve added a few more hangers for more Kregg jig clamps since the pictures were taken. The rack has been a huge time saver and made the shop a lot less cluttered. This project and the lumber cart are two of those projects that once done you wonder why you waited so long to do them.

When this popped up on the pulse page this morning I was like “damn, that looks familiar”! I looked on my projects page and sure enough, there you were in the comments.

I feel honored to have inspired a fellow LumberJock with one of my projects. Thank You.
