We are in the process of finishing/organizing our new shop. We built some storage shelves and clamp racks from 1.25” plywood that we get for FREE from a local window factory. One side of the plywood is white laminate and the other side is either oak or birch (furniture quality veneer). The shelves are joined with the kreg jig (love that tool!) I am going to build the grandkids some storage. My mind spins with the possibilities!

Looks good.

Seeing your clamp rack gave me an idea of how I want to modify mine.

I enjoy shop projects all the more when it doesn’t cost me a bean.
Good use of materials and handy shop accessories.

It looks like you’re really getting your shop shipshape.

You’ll never have to spend 15 minutes again looking for the right clamp.

Hey… free wood is GOOD!

As to clamp storage, I just hang ‘em from the rafters.
