My take on clamp storage

  Re: My take on clamp storage by Kudzu (Just had to move all...)
I have an I-beam resting on lolly columns in my basement.  I simply hang the clamps onto the bottom crosspiece.  Long clamps get hung near the columns and the small clamps get hung anywhere else.  They never seem to fall off and the small clamps don't hit my head. 

I do have a few on a pegboard behind my assembly table.  But just a handful.

I will post pics of my current setup but first I am looking for ideas for c clamps.  I don't have many but just bought some new ones, deep reach clamps.  I don't have much space under my benches but looking for a way to hang some large C-clamps a few deep on the wall.  I was going to make a plywood sheet with 7" long dowels, but given the current cost of plywood I feel it might be a better investment buying utility hooks instead.  Just looking for suggestions to hang C-clamps.

I built a rack for all the bar clamps, and the pipe clamps and extender pieces of pipe are just stacked/standing in the corner next to the dust collector.

I use Rubbermaid shelf standards and brackets for clamps.   They hold an incredible amount of weight.  Just lay the clamps across the brackets.  I can hang C clamps from the brackets as well, and the few handscrew clamps I have.

Those hand plans are huge they look like caricatures of what a woodshop should have on the shelf.
