Drawing of Clamp corral

To avoid the clutter of clamps on my workbench during project assembly, I made this handy benchtop rack to hold small clamps. It's easy to make using plywood for the angled sides and hardwood for the rails. Two rails at the bottom and one at the top determine the overall width of the clamp rack. A fourth rail at the front supports the clamp bars.
