Clamp Warehouse
Hang your long, heavy clamps on this rack designed for strength. Thebraces are notched into the bracket arms in a simple version of atimber-frame joint. Mill 2x4 dimensional lumber straight and square tomake these brackets. The braces form a 45-degree triangle with the twoarms. Miter the ends of the braces first. Then cut shallow dadoes intothe horizontal arms. Assemble one pair of arms on a workbench. Makesure they're square. Lay a brace on top of the arms and mark thepositions and depth of the dadoes. Assemble with glue and screws. Cut a30-degree bevel on the top rail and hanger rail. Space the brackets15⁄8-in. apart. Drill holes in the hanger rail for large lag screws andspace them to hit studs. Mount and level the hanger rail first, thenplace the clamp rack on it. If you fasten a vertical arm to the wall,the rack will be locked in place so it won't lift off the hanger rail.

   
 


Chisel Corral
Where's the 1⁄2-in. chisel? When all the handles of your chisels lookalike, you've got to see the blades, too. Grabbing the right size iseasy with this open rack. The long slot allows you to store chiselswith blades wider than the holes. The bottom shelf prevents you frombrushing up against sharp edges. Make the rack by ripping three lengthsof wood from one wide board. Cut the center piece 3⁄8-in. wide, thenclamp them back together (without glue). Drill 5⁄8-in. dia. holesspaced 2-in. apart down the middle of the center piece. Unclamp thethree pieces. Crosscut the center piece to make three short bridges,one from each end and one from the middle. Glue the wide board backtogether with the bridges separating the outer boards. Cut 3⁄8-in.-deepdadoes into the 3⁄4-in. uprights and shelf. Reinforce with screws fromthe back.

   
 


Tool Slides
Hang tools on Peg-Board slides without taking up valuable wall space.Dozens of hook styles are available—you'll probably find one to fitevery tool.
Top and bottom guides keep the slides on track. Make the dadoes wideenough for the slides to travel easily in the cleats. A hook at theback end of the slide stops against the bottom cleat, so you can'taccidentally pull the slide out all the way.

   
 


Tool Cabinet
Store your small tools in this simple, easy-to-build plywood cabinet.The shallow drawers are ideal for layout tools or carving gouges. Deepdrawers hold marking gauges and block planes. Place your cabinet on ashelf or hang it from a wall by fastening through the back. Use1⁄2-in.-thick ApplePly or Baltic birch for the case and back,1⁄4-in.-tempered hardboard for the drawer bottoms, and pine for thedrawer sides.  The drawer bottoms do double duty. They function asslides and pulls as w...
