A HOME FOR CLAMPS
Storage, organization, and mobility make this project a real winner.
SHOP OWNER: Walt Nicholson
LOCATION: Post Falls, ID
I finally got my new shop to the point where I can start making sawdust and decided to try and organize all my clamps. I started with a typical A-frame construction but decided that all the wasted space in the middle of the “A” would be a good place for storing all the other things I use when clamping. Things like glue, screws, biscuits, plugs, etc. would fit nicely, add organization, and keep necessary supplies close at hand.
I built small parts drawers that slide all the way through, can be removed altogether and put on the bench during use, and accessed from either side.
The large drawer at the bottom holds all the Kreg stuff, my plate joiner, and other miscellaneous related items.
The top drawer holds all my glue bottles. Four-inch casters with locks on opposing corners make it easy to roll around in the shop. It has 116 various clamps on it now with room for a few more.
