Clamp Rack

Clamp Rack

A while back I started a dividing wall in the shop.  This dividing wall had many different ideas for. I was working on plans for a panel saw at one point and a panel clamping system at another point. I have decided to put my woodworking clamps up instead. Here’s how I did it. I have plans available for this clamp rack in my shop.

PLANS

Cut a piece of plywood over size to start.
Layout the clamps you want to hang. Divide the space evenly for a better look. Nee to know how you want your clamps to hang. Once I determine that. I laid out all the slot needed for the clamps.
The over sized board got ripped into two even pieces. Then added double sided tape to cut both at the same time. I used the table and a long fence on the miter gauge to cut the slots. Test fit the clamps to make sure it will work for your clamps. I had to trim another 1/2″ off due to the lever on my jet clamps. the Bessy clamps worked fine.
Ripped two more boards for the sides. Added a round over to lighten the look. I used  1 1/4″ screws on the top and a 2 1/2″ screw on the bottom. Screwed through the side to hold the stretcher. I also used spacer to keep the stretchers level.
Rack hangs on a 45° french cleat. Just for added safety I held it to the wall with 3″ screws into the studs.

I decided I need and wanted more clamp storage so…

Built a matching rack to go next to it. I modified the plans a bit and made this one short, but longer. I think that’s what makes this design nice. It’s easy to modify to fit your needs.
