OK, second in the series of “Makin’ it On the Cheap”
Boy, got too many fishin poles, were they a mess. If I posted a pic of how cluttered they were I’d probaly be kicked out of the hunam race…
Needed something CHEAP, and quick, I know, left over 1/2” pine and 1/4” MDF… But wait, I made use of another handy little bit of mat’l. too. Can you guess what it is?
OK, most all will note that the restraining clips are (or were) biscuits used for joining wood together.
Well, it didn’t cost much, took only about an huor to build and it does the job. At this rate I might be able to get my car in the garage by the time the first snow falls, maybe…

That was a really cool idea, years ago I made a rod rack, where I used rubberbands – this was not a sucess, they got tired,, and at the end I got tired.
Thank you for this great idea.

Good idea! I have been pondering how to hold the rods in the slots. Thanks!
You can never have too many fishing rods. When my wife says I have too many fishing rods, I ask her why she needs so many pairs of shoes.

Hey Thanks to all for the support.
I made two of these. need to make one more to hold the remaining fishing rods tho. Ran out of screws for the biscuits…
I asked the wife to read the comments. She slapped me when she got to the shoe remark (knowing thats why I asked her to read them :0D) it only hurt a little but the laugh is still goin’... :0D

Thanks Again.
