Well, here is a fishing rod rack that I just finished for a friend. It is two pieces that mount to the wall. The bottom one holds the butts of the rods and has a sloped bottom piece that pushes the tip toward the wall. Then the top part just holds the tips to keep them from falling over.
I made it out of walnut and finished it with Watco Danish Oil in the medium brown color. This made it a little too cool for my taste, so I added a coat of garnet shellac which seemed to warm it up a pretty good bit. A little paste wax and that was it.
While it didn’t turn out perfect, it was ok. Plus I made some jigs and templates that will let me make more pretty easily if I ever decide to. So, all in all, another learning experience, and that can’t be bad.
