This is a fishing pole rack I was commissioned to build. I had to hunt around for the clips and finally found then at a billiard supply store. It is on a 12” lazy susan on the base. It is make from red oak and is screwed and doweled together.

Jim, this looks really nice! I like the idea of the billiard clips. I have been asked to make something similar. What size holes and how deep are they? Also, were the clips very expensive and do they work well? What is the height? Thanks for posting.

If you don’t want to clip your poles, some fishermen are quite particular. Try this. Drill corresponding holes in the top plate and make a cut out to allow the pole to set in. Take long shank fish hooks and cut the barbs off. Attach them so they can turn and latch the poles in the top “slot”. Nice job on your model.

Hi RickF16.
I belive the holes are 1 1/8” and about 1/2” deep. The rack is about 30” hign. I don’t have it here anymore and there were no plans saved. It was drawn out on a piece of scratch paper for the main dimensions. The clips I bought from a pool table supply place in town and I think they were like 75 cents a piece- too much to go into production with. I was going to make them out of ABS plastic around a form but they don’t look as nice as these.
