    Made this little rack out of scrap wood and some felt my wife had from a previous project. Turned out pretty good and I can keep a few rods out of the garage![​IMG]

    Nice work Sudman...

    I see room for 3 more rod and reel combo's. Holes in between the slots on the left and slots between the holes on the right.

    Nice rack.
    It's a fun way to use up some wood. Here is one I made a few years back. I stenciled some muskie and walleye on it.

    I bought an Okuma rod rack last weekend, but I think I like bigmackrack's rod holder better.

    The one I bought works, but it's a pain to fit all the rods with reels in it.

    [​IMG]Made this rack 26" high for my ice rods also made several more for regular fishing rods and one for fly rods. Very easy to build and hangs on the wall so it takes up no floor space and can not be tipped over. I have a drawing if any one wants. All that is needed is 3/4" lumber and 1/4" dowell.

    Any one ever make anything for traveling? I hate having loose rods bouncing all over I'n a truck, and I don't like to take the reels off my poles I match them up and never take them apart. Also I do a lot of night fishing and like to have a few rigged up so I don't have to fiddle I'n the dark, so some sort of case for rod and reel would be the ticket!
