I finally got around to building one of these, as a gift for a friend…an avid fisherman.

My thanks go out to Deeman, the original poster…and to Thelt, who sent me a copy of the plan.
I made this out of pine and walnut.
The handle actually spins with the help of a concealed bearing. It spins, but is not hooked up to the paper roll.

Thanks for looking.

Wow it does not just look great, it looks stunning. Very well constructed and the finish is impeccable. I am sure your friend will be very pleased. How I wish i could take his place.

Love it and would also like to see plans.
I think this might just drive my wife over the edge. Already too much fishing gear lying around.

Very nicely done. A fisherman will sure appreciate it. His wife, maybe not so much :)
