Topic tags/keywords: clamp rack

Hi folks,

I was just perusing another forum, while drinking hot coffee. I came upon this link. I thought it was worth sharing as it is an excellent way of storing clamps for the space challenged shop.

Linky: http://woodworking.phruksawan.com/clampCabinet/

Picture of the Project:

Please note, this is not my idea, or my shop. I’m just sharing a link to someone else’s work.

Have a great Sunday!

Tom

No plan to add it, David. I’m set for clamp storage right now. It’s an intersting idea that is going to get bookmarked in case I need the wall space in the future. If the past holds anything for the future, I’m going to need space. Bob #2 has offered to come and kick in the wall behind the workbench. If you go to that gentleman’s main site, you can see some other interesting jigs and projects. There is no method of contacting him that I saw though.

It’s pretty slick Tom. I can also see the same idea being used to store chisels and/or lathe tools. I might try and incorporate that into my shop someday.

The original came from Suwat Phruksawan, a former BT3Central member.

His personal project page on the space saving clamp racks can be found HERE.

I love the design, however with the number of clamps I am up to now, it’s a bit too confining.
