How To Make A Pipe Clamp Storage Rack

Pipe Clamp Storage Rack Workshop Tip

I’m a neat freak and hate when my shop is a mess.  Part of being neat is being organized.

Farmhouse Ranches Plans With Porcheshow to Farmhouse Ranches Plans With Porches for You can never have enough clamps so recently I decided that I needed a better way to store my pipe clamps.  My clamps range from 24 inches to 60 inches.  Storing them on a shelf is useless and messy.  I decided it was time to write an article on how to make a pipe clamp storage rack and reap the benefits of the article!

A Storage Rack That Works

My goal was to figure out how to make a pipe clamp storage rack that did not take up a lot of wall space and actually worked.  A hanging pipe clamp storage rack is not only a neat and orderly way to store your clamps but was easy to access them.

Mounting the rack on the wall made sense and I had seen a similar design in a magazine years back.

I wanted to my pipe storage rack out of my scrap plywood pile.  Plywood is strong and stable so I figured I’d get years of service out of this rack.

Basic Design

The pipe rack can be as long as you need it and to accommodate as many clamps as you need.  Mine holds 18 clamps.  It is basically an L-shaped rack and vertical mounting brace.

Each pipe clamp rack hole is the same size and evenly spaced.  Here’s how I did it:

The Rack

My pipe rack is 41″ wide x 7-1/2″ high and 4″ deep.   I glued, “sandwiched,” two layers of AC plywood together to make a 1-1/2 inch thick rack for strength.   Glue and clamps these two boards, do not use fasteners.

Once the glue is dry, clean the plywood edges and mark your rack spacing.  I ran my board through the table saw and took off 1/16 inch to clean the edges.

I started with a longer piece than needed.   [longer then 42 inches]   Using my combination square I spaced the pipe holder slots 1-inch apart which conveniently was the same width of my combination square.  The Pipe slots measure approximately 1-1/4 inch wide and are 2-3/4 inches deep which ensure that the clamp sits securely and does not fall off the rack.

I laid out the plywood board with my 1 inch spacing and 1-1/4 slots until I ended at 18 slots.  I added an additional inch at the end and cut it to final length with a miter saw.  The final pipe clamp rack length ended up being 41 inches.

I used an 1-1/4 Forstner bit and marked the center point on the first hole.   I then set my combination square and marked each slot at that center-point measurement.  Next I drilled 1-1/4 holes at the ends of all the slots.

The Back Board

The 3/4 plywood backer board is also what holds for 1 last update 2020/07/05 the rack to the wall and supports the pipe rack.  My backer board was also 41″ wide x 6″ high.   Several countersunk 2-1/2″ screws hold the rack to the backer board.The 3/4 plywood backer board is also what holds the rack to the wall and supports the pipe rack.  My backer board was also 41″ wide x 6″ high.   Several countersunk 2-1/2″ screws hold the rack to the backer board.

End Boards

Two end-boards tie the rack to the backer-board.  I measured down 4 inches and slanted the front edge 45 degrees for a cleaner look and to avoid scraping my knuckles when reaching for the end pipe clamps.

Fasten Pipe Rack To Wall

Assemble the end supports to your plywood first then attach the back panel to the sides of the supports and under your pipe clamp plywood support.  Use glue and countersunk your screws.
