I was looking for ideas on how to store my clamps and found something that I liked. So, I ended up designing my own clamp holder taken after the one that I found to make for my shop. See atached links.

Mark, that looks like a pretty good idea. This design will allow you to store your clamps on the wall in a fashion that occupies a relatively small footprint.

looks good ,
heres what i did

.
you can edit this post and give your
photo address an ( ! ) exclamation point at each end of the address tight to it ,
you might have to set up the first ( ! ) and drag the direct link from photobucket to it
and seal it with another ( ! ) point .
then it will apaer here by itself .

My shop could use that level of clamp organization. Nicely done!

Thanks for the insight Patron!

My only concern is the stability of the front clamp holder as it swings open. I am showing two door hinges mortised into both frames. I am trying to maintain maximum floor space as well as wall space. Both frames I am thinking of making out of 3/4 stock.

Your clamp holder look nice too and definitely sturdy. I believe your clamp holder would be the way to go for the more heavy bar clamps.

Patron, I used the exclamation point at each end of the address but part of the picture is cut off so, I removed the exclamation points.

Thanks for the comment Ratchet and Scott.
