I had a lot of odds and ends of plywood lying around so I figured it was high time that I made something to keep all my fishing stuff organized. Nothing too special but it gets the job done. The curved slot in the top part was made using a French curve as a pattern. The open part in the bottom is to accommodate 5 Plano tackle boxes whenever I get around to buying them. I topped it off with a coat of poly.

Looks good, I like the french curves instead of just some cut outs, it gives the piece more character.

I love the design. I completely understand the idea of cost savings and using up left over pieces but this is worthy of an expensive exotic wood. Besides, is there anything more valuable and display worthy than a man’s fishing poles?.......except perhaps his power tools.
Well done.

Thanks for all the comments so far! I agree with you ohwoodeye, the broom handle with the alabama rig on it will have a proper burial when its time is over.

A well -designed rod holder….Very functional and practical…..It should last you a very long time….nice reels, too…..Waht kind of rods do you use? I noticed you have an Alabama Rig tied on….I fish it with 80 lb. Spider Wire braid, and a med.hvy. 7 foot All Star Titatuimn rod….The rig will get the job done…..

I’ve got all differant kinds of rods, if I had my choice they would all be skeet reese or st croixs. The broom handle is a BassProshops rod, the one in the middle is an Abu workhorse, and the one on the left is a ugly stick. The spinning rods abu garcia vendetta and a berkley lightning rod. I would like to chuck the bulk of them in the Potomac and get some good rods but who has $100 to spend on a rod these days?
