I needed some kind of rack to hold my fishing poles because I am tired of having to un-tangle them from the corner of a closet anytime I go fishing. I wanted something that didn’t take up much space so I decided that it needed to mount on the ceiling.
Of course I browsed through the projects on this site for inspiration. Several members had made racks that hang from the ceiling but I really liked Ken90712’s rack that had the poles hanging from both directions to save even more space.
I headed to the barn and found three short sections of old oak barnwood (I think white oak). I sanded the wood to take off the dirt then squared it up with my jointer and planer. The large holes for the handles are 2” and the small holes are 1”. Everything was rounded over and it was finished with Butcher Block Oil that I had left over from my last project.
