I’ve got a pile of K-body clamps that I use all the time. This clamp carousel guarantees they’re always close at hand. It stores 18 clamps in a 2-sq.-ft. space, and I can roll them right to the job. 


My carousel consists of two 3/4-in. plywood discs securely fastened to a center post by glue, screws and braces. The top disc has a 1-1/2-in. square cutout in the center so it will slip over the post. Both discs are divided into 18 segments, each spanning 20 degrees. I cut notches for the clamp beams in the top disc and glued wedge-shaped spacers on the bottom disc to corral the clamp heads. The carousel rolls on five 3-in. swivel casters. To hold the clamps in place, I screwed a strip of plastic cut from a food-storage container around the edge of the top disc and cut a slit at each notch.
