I made this for my son in law who is an avid fisherman. My many thanks go out to Shopdog and especially thelt who sent me a copy of the plans.
I deveated from the plans a little. For one thing I bought the spring loaded tube at the hardware store. The handle turns on the end of a brass screw.
The main body is 1/2” red oak and the handle, drag adjuster, gear box, and dowels are made from mahogany.
The part that mounts to the wall is red oak with red oak stain.
Thanks for looking
