This is a set of cubby holes i built to hold all my c clamps. Its made of 1/2in Apple Ply, 1/8in Maple ply and 1/8in purple heart for all the edging.

1. The bottom 3 rows are all the same spacing and then on the top row i made 5 of them bigger to fit these other clamps i have. The decision to make those 5 bigger was made right in the middle of the project and i ended up making them an 1/8” to small :(. Some other random things now occupy this spot.
2. side view
3. top view, i keep all my little sand paper bits, that have been used, up here.
4. this is one of the extra dividers that i had made for a spare. when i was cutting the back (left edge of picture) i putt it long ways through the table saw (i know not smart) and it caught and hit my stomach. i though my stomach had been ripped open but it wasn’t. got some gnarly bruise (i have pics if you want :p).

It was a fun project and purple heart is now one of my favorite woods, to bad its so expensive.

Nice job – I love the organized look. The French cleat makes for a simple yet effective mounting bracket.
