The Best DIY Clamp Storage Ideas

Maintaining an organized workshop is crucial for makers. If you don’t properly store tools and supplies, it’s easy to lose track of what you have, including your clamps. Due to the variety of clamps we use for projects, there are several different ways to store them. Take some time to build custom clamp storage that will help you become a better and more organized DIYer.
