Finally finished up my fishing rod rack and it turned out great! Made it out of oak at 3/4 inch. Was a lot easier than I thought and din’t give me to many problems. Used dado cuts on all the shelves and used dovetails for building the drawers. The drawers ended up working very well without any mechanism for sliding. I used an english chesnut stain with a semi gloss finish. Two light coats and it turned out great. Let me know what you think!

I like that! I think I have like 50 or so rods and could probably use several of these! Of course, then I would have to display them and drive the wife crazy!
Anyway, it looks very well done!!!!!!!

Looks freaking great, bro! Yeah Yeah yeah! looks like it will have a great new home in your basement. I really like the handles you chose for the drawers too.

That is a mighty fine piece of work young man. Good design and workmanship. The Dove tails looks good and adds character; I like the absences of drawer slides when the drawer operates smoothly. Drawer slides on Fine Furniture are slim and none. You did a great job, congratulations.

Nice looking rack. You need more rods, though.

Have your say...
