Clamp Storage – PART 1 – Wood Clamps

This weekend went by very fast!  I did get out in my shop on Saturday for a few hours and work on my clamp storage for my slat wall, so be sure to look for that video tomorrow.  I did not get to everything I was hoping to, however.  My first focus was to clean […]

Upcoming Project – Slat Wall Storage
