This turned out to be more of a project than I had planned…LOL. I first started with the thought of a simple fishing rod rack, but it soon turned into a bit more. I decided to add a shelf on the bottom surrounded by a face frame for reel boxs and other accessories. Since the rack is about 7 inches deep, I decided to put a bar across the back of the rod tip holder board so this board could be used as a shelf also. I drilled some holes in the sides to give it a retro look and reduce the weight a little.
The rack is made from 5/8” white oak. White oak is one of my favorite woods to work with. The rack measures 40” wide, 54” high, and 7” deep. It’s stained with Minwax Early American oil stain and then sealed with a couple of coats of waterbased sealer. It holds nine rods.
The rack is held on the wall with a 2 1/2” X 3/4” French cleat.
