My shop is elf size so space is an issue and as such I’ve been working on maximizing wall and ceiling space best I can. These ceiling racks are taken from Fine Woodworking 2008 workshop Solutions page 30. I don’t know the issue number off hand but if interested I can find it.
The only mod I made to the plans was to dado the bottom slightly as the newer, Bessey clamps have a plastic tab at the end that would not fit though the slot made by the dado. The newer style clamps request a bit more depth. I also predrilled pocket holes on the bottom edge; thinking I may want to something to the bottom. Although I haven’t really used them much I would say for the longer claps I don’t use much this is great. I’m not sure this would be great if you needed them all the time.
