Double-Duty TV Shelf/Clamp Rack

"What's on TV tonight?" In this shop, it's an organized set of clamps.

TV Shelf/Clamp Rack

TV Shelf/Clamp Rack

Every now and then the best-laid plans of woodworkers take a backseat to pure luck. When Randy Zimmerman built this corner shelf for his shop, his intention was to use it just to hold a portable TV. Later, however, he discovered that he'd allowed enough of an edge that his clamps could simply grip the front rail and support cleats. Once the TV-shelf-turned-storage-center proved its merit, he added a second set of cleats into the corner below the TV shelf for even more clamp storage.

Quick tip: prevent clamp marring
To keep clamps from marring project surfaces, use the plastic caps found on milk jugs as pads. Hold a pair of the caps, which normally aren' recycled with used jugs, in place with a few dabs of hotmelt glue.

--Jerry Pasley, Raleigh, N.C.
