Clamp Storage Design
Here is a pipe clamp storage I designed. This is an Entry for the clamp Storage Design. You can make this any length you want. This is my double decker and I am holding 58 pipe clamps. I can put F style on the rack in between the pipe clamps. You also can put squeeze clamps or C clamps on it. However you might want to leave the drilled out and cut slots out and leave the section solid wood.
Next, I have mine screwed to the studs in the wall. However, you can easily add a French Cleat to the back.
I made mine from 2 x material that I thickness planed to 1". All joints were glued, counter sunk, & screwed with 2 1/2" course thread construction screws. About every 4" in the center of the joint.
This rack holds 1/2" & 3/4" pipe clamps. I put my bracing every eighth clamp. You could space them out to 18 or 20 “.
The thing you have to do is use a 1” diameter bit for the 1/2" pipe clamps and a 1 1/4 for the 3/4" pipe clamp. I didn’t change any layout just hole size. Make sure you drill and cut slots before assembly. I only have 10 3/4" pipe clamps and they are on the far right. I also added some small nails to hold my clamp tracks for my skill saw or router. Next you can use the very top as a shelf.
I believe that this is very versatile.
Please see my drawings of which I did by hand. Theres the side view, top view, front view and a isometric view. If you have a question I’ll answer it. Im designing my F style clamp rack as you read this.
