I made this fly rod case for my dad’s 8’ (2 piece) rod. It consists of a 3’ maple center and a 6” walnut “cap” on each end. The pictures show the the processing of the maple section which basically consisted of rounding the blank and then lots of drilling with increasing bit sizes and multiple extensions. I had to drill from both ends and was about 1/16th off when I met in the center. Fortunately that cannot be seen.
The inside diameter is 1 15/16”, the outside diameter is 2 3/16”, and the diameter of the joints are 2 7/16” as the are joined with tenons. It was finished with several coats of satin poly.
