I found some old woodworking magazines at the flea market that had this project in it. I made it out of oak, maple and walnut. This project gets a lot of interest from everyone that sees it.

I love it. You could make a fortune selling these to real estate people who rent houses and condos on the beach.

This is so awesome that even a complete non-fisherman like myself would love to have one. Great work, Dennis!

That’s great, I have to make one from my brother in-law. Can you tell me where you got the plans from? Maybe the magazine, month and issue?

Thanks, Mark

Which woodworking magazine? Where can we find a copy of those plans?

Love it as well! I have a buddy that would die for this. Hoe do you refill this? Do the parts move as well? Love it!
