Made from scraps for a friend of mine for his birthday. He enjoys fishing and is also dealing with a lot of crap at work so this is actually quite appropriate !! Maple for the base, mahogany sides, and cherry and maple for the handle…Shellac finish after staining the mahogany..
I got the idea from a fellow LJ, sorry I can’t recall who, but if you wish to chime in I’ll give credit where credit is due!

Thanks! He got a kick out of it…...
I didn’t use a plan, just built it around a roll. Thought it would be cool if the handle makes the clicking sound when turned, or if it would “unroll” when the handle turned, but didn’t have time…..
Maybe for my next victim ???
