It does help the clamps stay straight if the rack is angled slightly outward at the bottom unless you have a setup that uses grooves to keep them straight, wouldn’t take more then a 2×4 on the bottom to bring it out enough. Doesn’t matter so much with F clamps but seems to matter a little with beam and pipe clamps which have shorter, flat pads that can slip off. Mine is just an A frame with some cross pieces to rest the clamps on and the whole thing is on wheels. my understanding is that spring clamps can weaken so I glued a couple of thin strips to the side of my clamp rack that the spring clamp can sit over without actually clamping the wood.
