I made four of these fishing rod racks. They are a donation to the local TU chapter for their annual Fly Casting competition. (Teams of four go around a course setup with different casting challenges. It is scored like golf. The team with the lowest score wins.)
I used through dovetails for the shelves and rod holders. The drawers are assembled with hand cut dovetails. My first shot at dovetails. They came out pretty well. solid walnut. Really enjoyed working with it. Finished with Deft lacquer.

Beautiful! However, I think that those folks need more fishing rods. Twelve is just not enough.

Solid walnut, nice! You did a great job on these. The recipients will be lucky to get these.
