Clamp Rack – Part 2: F Style Bar Clamps

This completes the project started here.

The difference between this rack and the pipe clamp rack is the top, the back remains the same.  Initially I designed the slot depth 3 7/8″, but since the table saw blade height is less, the executive decision was made to simply use the depth the blade could provide, which was about 3/8″ short of the mark.  The two outside cuts were made first, followed by a third clean-up cut.

A total of four were made, so two were clamped together and cut at the same time.  When that operation was finished, all the necessary parts to assemble were ready.

The assembly process is exactly like the pipe clamp rack… glue and screws.

Here’s a couple pics with the clamps in place.  And the cabinet door still opens fully.
