PVC Clamp Holders

Clamps Photo Like many woodworkers, I don’t have a lot of room in my shop. So I try to make the most of the space that I have. Since most of my wall space is already taken up with cabinets and counters, I needed to find a place to store my long pipe clamps. So I turned to the ceiling, as you can see in the photo at right.

Clamps Close-Up The clamp rack makes it easy to organize the clamps and keep them within easy reach. Best of all, the storage rack doesn’t take a lot of time or materials to build. It consists of two identical parts. Each section is a piece of “two-by” stock that gets screwed to the ceiling joists. Next a series of PVC holders is attached. The 2″-dia. PVC holders have a cutout that makes it easier to get the clamps in and out of the rack, as in the photo in the left margin.

Good Woodworking,
