Not a bad idea. I was hoping for something that would use zero, or less floor space for the clamps though. My "Utility cart" is also my router table, and the deck height on it is a comfortable 40". It's not pretty, but it was not designed or built to be. It was designed and built to be sturdy. I am working my way up to building the workbench on www.bobsplans.com
My garage / workshop is far from orderly enough to complete such a project, and my kitchen cabinet restain project is too far along for me to stop now... But I figure the Bobsplans bench will eliminate the router cart / table entirely, as well as give me clamping / assembly surface, not to mention more tool storage.
The wall behind my current workbench needs a total redo I know. I figure I will pull the 36" legs off the back of that bench, notch the top, and run 2x4s 84" up to the top, cross them over with 2 more Strong Ties, bring them forward to make a shelf, knee brace that, and hang 2 of the floursescents from that. Mount a 4x8 sheet of peg board on that, and move the plastic small parts boxes to the wall next to the bench. Using pegs I should be able to mount EVERYTHING I need to instead of using nails and hunting for studs...
I figure on one end, off of the shelf, I can hang the clamps. The new shelf will afford me some extra storage as well.
Those HD shelves really do look good. And I figure if I can get 4 of those, I should be able to compress what I have on 6 of the narrower Wal Mart shelves, and get the smoker against the wall like it used to be. That should free up enough space for me to effectively work.
