Default Wooden Rod Rack Ideas...

I built some rod racks a few years ago to hang my rods from the rafters in my shop. They worked great but my shop got broke into last year. Luckily the crack heads never looked up though they did make off a couple Stihl's and a Honda generator .

I would like to build a wooden rack to go inside my house that would hold my more expensive offshore reels. No big 30 or 50W's just a few Avet's and a US senator. I'm looking for something pleasing to the eye that I could put a nice finish on (no PVC, lol). I would prefer a freestanding rack that I could move around but I'm not totally against a wall mounted rack. Here's a few pics I found on the internet that I like but I really want to see what ya'll have? Just looking for new ideas so post some pics.....

Thanks,
Matt

I built this one. Making it wider and more distance between the rods.

Either one of those would actually look nice if it weren't for the builders grade dimensional lumber.

You, sir, have a problem!!!!!







You filled up the whole wall! Now you gotta go do the same on the other side! The problem is, what to do with all the crap stacked on the other wall.

Here is one I saw for sale that I was thinking about making. The base is an inverted V to lock the poles into the rack. It looked like it would be fairly easy to build.



The dark rod rack I made for my garage, and the light one was version 2.0 that I made for my brothers. His is made of premium pine, but if I make anymore they will be out of 3/4 premium plywood. If you go with something like my ceiling racks, alternate the holes like I did in the light colored one to better fit large reels.

I have a very similar ceiling mount in my shop. Which I don't have a ceiling just exposed rafters so I made mine out of 1x6s and screwed them to the rafters.




I do like the first design you posted and more than likely I'm going to build one similar to it. Except I'll only have 1 slanted board because all my rods will be on one side.

Ken-
unfortunately, I’m only good at buying things. If I made one of those it would be so bad!!!

I use J pipe hangers in my garage and basement nailed straight to floor / ceiling joists, you can use 1/4 -1/2 for the tips and whatever you need for the buts. You could also just screw them to a 2 X 3 and then secure that to the ceiling.
