I made this out of scrap 1/2” Baltic Birch Ply. I finally got my $3.00 eBay clamps off the ground! LoL

What do you think of the clamps? In my opinion they’re pretty good value, although the plastic jaw sheaths are 100% trash. I’d gladly pay an extra 1$ per piece for some slightly better rubber ones. Rack looks solid

Great looking rack. How did you cut those slots? With a jig using a dado set?

The clamps are fine for the F – style, you can’t beat a parallel clamp though. I threw out the plastic jaws when I opened the package! lol

I used my INCRA router table, and just moved the fence over an 1 1/2” every time.

That looks good. Just wondering, what kind of clamps are those? They look like the old Pittsburg clamps that HF used to sell minus the jaw pads. Most of mine are those clamps, but I didn’t dislike the pads… However, the rubber ones on my newer HF clamps are softer… But I digress… Nice job.

Hey bud,

You’re on the right track…..now just double the size of the rack, and go buy more clamps to fill it up…You’ll need ‘em eventually if not sooner…Oh.. I forgot..you are a Sooner.!!!!
