Quick and Dirty Clamp Rack

I was sick of the way my clamps were being stored (basically they were all clamped down on a cleat on the wall) and finally decided do to something about it.

I had a piece of 3/4” laminated particle board in the scrap pile, so I ripped it into two long pieces, cut 1/2” slots partway into one piece, pocket screwed and glued the two pieces into a 90 degree “L” and mounted it to the wall. Then I made some 90 degree corner braces and glued and nailed them in for support.

Much nicer now, and I moved them to a different place in the shop that’s easier to get to.

It may be quick and dirty but it works. And I’m glad to see someone besides me that has a mixture of clamps instead of the beautiful row of matching clamps I usually see and you also need more, just like I do. Maybe we are in the real world of hobbyists. :)

I highly agree with TexasJim that is the real world, looking forward to build mine soon.

Nice, very practical, I also have a mixture of clamps it’s good to see it’s not just me.

Yep, I have the same type of rack and a mixture of clamps that I continually add to. ( My Wife and friends are always saying “You need more clamps?)

Does everyone in the universe have two or three of those exact long HF F clamps with the light brown wooden handles? I’ve seen dozens of pictures with a couple showing, but never any greater numbers. Everyone must buy a couple and decide they aren’t bad enough to throw away but not good enough to buy any more…
