This is a fishing rod stand that I made for my girl friend’s father who is a die hard fisherman. At the time I didn’t know too much about wood working so it was quite a learning experience. Looking back with what I know now I would have done a few things differently. It would have also been nice if I had a router at the time to dress it up a little more. Other than that I am pretty happy with the way it turned out.

Well done! I’ve found that the hardest part of fishing racks is getting the spacing right so the reels don’t touch.

I think you will say/think “Looking back with what I know now, I would have done…” after you finish every project, for the rest of your days as a woodworker. I know I do.

Very nice- if he has any empty spaces, he needs to fill them ASAP. Then you can build him another one!
