My mother asked me to build a fly rod cabinet for my father-in-law that was specifically designed to hold his precious gear, fit into the narrow space available in their hallway and match the vintage white oak hutch that is near by. I could not find any existing cabinet or plans that fit the bill, so I designed and built this from the ground up and delivered it in August of 2012. It holds his prized rod collection, displays his reels on the side, has a drawer to hold reel cases, fly cases, etc. There is also a space behind to hold rod cases and hang nets. There is no electrical outlet in that location, so I cut apart a cordless power hammer and used that Lithium Ion battery to power the LED lights – works great. Finished with TransTint Dark Mission Brown dye and several coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal semi-gloss. Very happy customer.
