    Fantastic videos Jay, you’ve taken it to another level mate !

  2. John Fisher on June 8, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Thanks, Jay! I’m going to incorporate this design into a lumber cart I’m working on. Appreciate the work!

  3. David Greenwood on June 8, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    Definitely agree a project like this makes my workarea more enjoyable to work in!! It looks great, organizes the clamps, he k I even like the spring jaw small clamp idea! I am presently on a mission to clear off my bench and organize my tools. I presently have a garage back and sidewall covered in pegboards and hooks. Kinda used pegboards just to clear tools of workbench, ladders and shovels. Now i want to use projects like yours to put tools closest to workbench that i use most often, easier to reach, and more organized , and still use the pegboards. Projects on your channel motivate me to keep going, and know it is ok, to redo projects like you do to i prove the design. Keep up the great videos, I am a big fan!

  4. Rim Veitas on June 8, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    Do you have plans for the tool board behind you @ 2:05 of the video?

  5. Krazy Polak on June 8, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    Hey jay. Go patriots man. You guys got a lot of players from us. Lol. Good f video. Awesome

  6. barstad 9591 on June 8, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    Your videos are always awesome – content and video skills. Thanks.

  7. Felix Reali on June 8, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Love watching your videos. thanks for the tips. I could watch a video of yours 100 times and every time I would learn something new.

  8. Joe’s Garage on June 8, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    I pretty much live for shop projects. I enjoy those projects more than actual projects

  9. Robert Stigter on June 8, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    Same Experience Jay, i have been watching this video twice now and am of the same opinion. Great Design, Thanks for sharing. Reds from Germany, Robert.

  10. TheBiggerrich on June 8, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Not watched your videos in any sort of order but hey is that AC I see now (7:28)?

  11. Build It or Bust on June 8, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Great design! I am about to tackle the same thing in my shop and I am going to incorporate some of this design. Thank you!

  12. CReeves Makes on June 8, 2022 at 8:44 pm

    Is it possible to like a video twice…three times? I have watched this video a lot and I learn or catch something every time. Well done sir…well done!

  13. Dirk Roggeveen on June 8, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    Hi Jay, you said that you don’t have a CNC machine, I can imagine that becoz they are pretty expensive.

    But what I always do is letting a company lasering a mold from 3 or 4 mm (± 1/8”) perspex, laser cutting isn’t that expensive.

    Then you can use your router to complete the contour, and within 0,01mm (0,01") Best Regards, Dirk

  14. Tony P on June 8, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    great vid, need to build my clamp hanger space which has been a long time coming. I’ll be using similar

  15. supertruper1988 on June 8, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    This is the fist video I have watched of yours. Love the production style and the overlayed dual shots! Subscribed and looking forward to watching more.

  16. L. Rod282 on June 8, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    Good clamp rack, gave me an idea but will incorporate it unto a french cleat design. your video editing is really good. Great job.

  17. Gary Mitchell on June 8, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    Thanks for speed recording, plus like the instructions and grey template that you’ve used – by the way, your twin is slightly better looking!

  18. Krazy Polak on June 8, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    Wow jay awesome video.

  19. PBMS123 on June 8, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    clamp them together and cut them all at the same time, they’ll line up perfectly,

  20. Bryant on June 8, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    good video! thanks!

  21. MixingGBP on June 8, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    6:13 your twin brother is doing a great job!

  22. glen schumann on June 8, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    Thanks. Got some ideas to use.

  23. James Oliver on June 8, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    This is great, thanks! I’m moving my shop soon and will do it this way in the new place

  24. InHarmsWay2009 on June 8, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    I just moved to a new shop and left behind my former linear system and built one similar to yours. I have to agree it is much better overall in terms of function and space.

  25. Timothy Eldridge on June 8, 2022 at 8:59 pm


  26. MixingGBP on June 8, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    Why would 54 people not like this simple and effective idea?

  27. Robsb1234 on June 8, 2022 at 9:00 pm

    I think I’m a bigger fan of your editing skills, than your woodworking skills. That is not a knock on your woodworking skills.

  28. Link on June 8, 2022 at 9:01 pm

    Waits for miter saw blade to stop before moving…….

  29. TheSungecko420 on June 8, 2022 at 9:01 pm

    In hindsight, I would have not glued and screwed the brackets. I’ve done a similar design but used pocket screws to attach the brackets to the plywood backing. This way, as you decide to change the layout you can easily unscrew the current brackets and rearrange.

  30. Margaret Hegmann on June 8, 2022 at 9:02 pm

    Jay — This is Dave Not Margaret – No, I don’t have gender ID problems, the account is in my wife’s name.
    First of all — the V2 clamp rack is Fabulous and will appear in my "70-year-old-late-mid-life-crisis wood working shop"!
    Second — Having been in audio and video production for 50-years, I truly appreciate the quality of your presentation. Over the years people have said, presentation is not as important as the information, but when poor quality presentations present good information, much can be lost. The clarity of your A-V work helps us Retired Rookies figure out what you Whippersnappers are doing. Again my thanks for NOT falling in with the — Pay No Attention To The Man In The Cloud Of Sawdust — crowd. — DH

  31. Dan Mottesheard on June 8, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    think I will make one in my newly relocate workshop from Livingston TX to Santa Fe TX. thanks. perfect timing for me.
    Dan Mottesheard

  32. Dirk Roggeveen on June 8, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    Great Idea Jay, thanks for showing it.

  33. Larry Lewis on June 8, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    Jay, I have watched most of your videos, and you are amazingly good at describing your work and the reason for why you do what you do. The shop projects are my favorite. I will be making a clamp rack similar to yours to increase wall space in my shop. I am also making a dust collection cart similar to yours. Keep up the good work and I will be buying some of your plans when I get around to other projects!

  34. Kip Wilson on June 8, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    I love the idea for the spring clamps.

  35. Bryan Welch on June 8, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    This is a very good design for wood clamps. Thank you!

  36. Joe Blow on June 8, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    When room is a premium I use a clamp cart to park all the clamp into a mobile base. It allows clamp to be rolled up to project and clamps are ready to be grabbed with a removable bin attached on top for glue and other needed small parts such as clamping culls, painters tape, and small spring clamps. As for the big gap left on wall I use it for cabinets or jig hanging space.

  37. James Surber on June 8, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    How do you guys have so much empty wall space? You’re not the only one with loads of wall space. My own shop has none of that, being totally occupied with cabinets and shelves. I leave little spaces between cabinets to access my electrical receptacles. If I had some wall space, then I could build a clamp rack.

  38. Felix Reali on June 8, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    PS: love the Nintendo sounds :-)))

  39. David Maes on June 8, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    @11:05 This is a very true statement and should be a rule of thumb when you design your shop. Great, now all I need to do is REALLY apply it. 😀

  40. Oldman Pottering on June 8, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    Awesome work Jay, I was expecting (in the interest of symmetry) that the bottom clamp holders would have been angled. More importantly though I saw that while you were working there was another guy (who looked a lot like you) was stealing your clamps, I hope you find him 👍

  41. Papi4l2 on June 8, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    Needs a big red wings logo right in the middle lol

    Im guessing ur located in michigan?

  42. CliffArt on June 8, 2022 at 9:10 pm

    your video production with the overlays has really become something to watch. I remember watching you build one of your first work benches. Quite and improvement, Very informative. Great video editing.

  43. Johan de Ruiter on June 8, 2022 at 9:12 pm

    Awesome workshop and tools brother, very inspiring!

  44. John Klein on June 8, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    Jay what would you estimate the cost of this build to be?
    Just curious about how much $ it saves over purchasing clamp racks from various manufacturers.

  45. Kelly Sweetman on June 8, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    Great idea. I need this, instead of the pile of clamps I’m using now. I’m curious why you didn’t continue using the french cleat.

  46. Angela Monteleone on June 8, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    Somebody is always making a bettor mouse trap! Glad I waited. I don’t a clamp rack. I’ve got clamps everywhere. going to make one of these soon. Thank you sir.

  47. Brian Andrews on June 8, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    Your video editing skills have progressed as well. Nice.

  48. julio montes on June 8, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    very nice and really efficient your project I need something like that I’m going to do it

  49. DreidMusicalX on June 8, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    Very nice!

  50. cognitor900 on June 8, 2022 at 9:28 pm

    Haven’t watched a JB video in a while and I realised how much I enjoy (& have missed) the editing and cleverness of the production.
    Now for some binge catch up viewing!!
    Thanks Jay.
