After joining IA my fishing activity has grown tenfold so has my tackle, so I decided to construct a rod holder which could also store all my tackle and gear. I aim to be as hands on with the project as I possibly can.
After going through several samples on Google,Cabella's,Bass Pro I finally found the ideal option, which I intend to replicate.

Sample 1:
Image

Sample 2:
Image

Hired a carpenter and showed him the plans after a lengthy discussion on measurements: 4x2 (3pieces), 3x2 (3pieces) He drew the patterns on the wood and has sent it for cutting. (Will upload pictures when they arrive). Updated

Wood
Image
Image

Tools being used
Image

The Carpenter :D
Image

The Drawer: I plan to divide the draw into two halves, one side of the half will be bare so it may hold my tackle box and other oddities like spools, terminal tackle, tools etc. The other half of the draw will be a lure organizer, best I let the ref image explain.
Image Any idea what material I could use for this?

Thats it so far will upload more pictures and details when the wood arrives after being cut.
If you spot any areas of improvement I would appreciate if you could bring it to my notice.

Thanks for Reading :D

That one thrilling experiment. Why are you not doing it on your own? That will be much better. This is the improvement I will suggest you...

keep us updated...

Hi
Is that pine wood i see????....if so then your rod holder would not only look good but smell good as well....nice going mate, all the best.

As for your lure organizer....i would suggest you to go for the thinest plywood available in the market because of the strength it gives.

all the best

I think making it on your own would be fun, i.e. if you have the time and if you like building stuff, I built my rod holder by my over 20 years and it is still going strong.

Lures are a problem as they take up a lot of space, use plastic sheets for your organizer. I used to pin my lures onto Styrofoam sponge. Now I just keep them in their boxes and into the lure cupboard, it becomes painful after a while.

My frequently used lures are in my several different lure boxes with hook guards on, the boxes are separated by the type of fishing I intend to do, when I loose one I replace it with one from the cupboard.

But what you are doing looks really good, post pictures of the final product. I am sure a lot of us will be interested to see the outcome.

@Arish The reason I am not doing it myself is primarily because of my profesional life I just dont have the time to do it alone, it would end up taking weeks. Although I have contributed by hand sanding all the pieces of wood every night after work.
@Ralf [smilie=fixtit.gif]
@Mchishi It sure is Pine Wood, good observation!! For the lure organiser he made a sample with Plywood and it did not work out, instead Ill be using some form of plastic/acrylic.
BTW I took couple of whiffs of the wood and couldn't smell anything :lol:
@Manishhgin Thank you Governor, lets hope it turns out nice.
@Bobby Time is what I dont have, if I did have it I would be living on an Island somewhere fishing till the end of time :D Wow 20 yrs and still going strong!! I sure hope mine lasts as long. Would be nice if you could upload a picture, maybe I could pick up couple of pointers. Incase the lure organiser doesn't work out Im keeping your method of lure storage as plan B.

More pictures and updates coming shortly!!

I think instead of plywood ---> HPL of a suitable thickness is the best material for making the lure organizer
{ HPL stands for ----> High Pressure Laminates it is manufactured by assembling sheets of impregnated kraft paper using phenolic resign and pressed under specific temperatures and pressures.}

it can be found in the local hardware shop under the brand name BAKELITE
it has a smooth glossy finish on both sides and comes in all colours and designs
Hope this Helps :-)

Admit it, this Jehangir makes even a rod and tackle setup look sexy. Awesome dude. Beware, your carpenter is a marked man.

Jehangir, you can also look at the rod stand I am using, it takes less space and your rods stay well protected.

For lures, I have a tackle box made by plano, you can buy that from cabelas and it’s always packed with enough lures that I will need for any saltwater fishing. For storing my other lure collection, I have a made a cabinet, have a look

Sorry Jehangir, I do not have a picture of the stand, it is in my home in India, I am in Hong Kong, but it does looks something like Apoo's, the second support is a third of the way from the bottom, unlike Apoo's which is at the top.

@ Bobtheangler: By all means hes a good guy and needs the work.
@ Lionheart: I was most confused on what material to use for the LO, thank you for the recommendation! I have instructed him to make a small sample out of Bakelite (HPL) will upload a pic when its ready.
@ Santosh: I like your lure and rod storage. Your rod holder design was in fact my first option when I was planning this project unfortunately I do not have the space for a dedicated lure cupboard hence the decision to create something a bit more compact and semi-portable. Yes, I have been eyeing that box on Cabela's as well!! Making a trip to the States in May I'll be sure to purchase it.
Question- Are those hook guards available in K'market?
@Apoo Thats a boat load of rods you got there :shock: thanks for the ref pic.
@Bobby Cool Beans.
@Ravi :D

You Get the Idea

After a little mess
Image

Voilà There Done
Image

Post cutting and drilling of all the pieces

All the blocks seem to be falling into place all thats left to do is sand of the ruff edges and nail it together.
Question: After the rack is ready I need to coat it with some sort of protective clear coat I cant figure out what to use, any thoughts or ideas? Note- I'd prefer the coating not to be drastically shiny or glossy.

Feel free to add your thoughts, opinions and constructive criticism.
Thats it for now. Will update next with assembly process.

hmm quite a project you got there jehangir...what are you planning to do with the insides of the drilled parts of the top and bottom rod support ? what did the carpenter recommend ? smoothing the rough surfaces inside or coating it with sun mica or other material ?

@ Ralf & Maneesh: Thanks :)

@ Raka: He did not recommend anything, I would prefer to keep it natural and will sand of all the drilled parts in the supports. What is Sun mica? I googled it and got some random laminate company.

Use a resin called Woodtouch which is available in a ready mix form .... it works brilliantly ... just use a brush to paint it on.. its a clear finish and available at any hardware store

After the rack is ready I would suggest not to use sun mica but to display the natural grain pattern of the wood by Applying a Clear Coat of Melamyne

One has to just do the following

first the surface has to be sanded with emery paper along the direction of the grains of the wood to remove the roughness of the wood.
This has to be followed by application of suitable wood putty or Lambi on the black stains or depressions if any are present ,
Allow it to dry for 6-8 hrs then use sand paper no 180 & emery paper no. 320 to bring out a smooth uniform finished surface

Choose any transparent coating from Asian Paints like Touchwood, Melamyne or PU Clear Finish
( judicious use of thinner in proper proportion is to be mixed ) Two to three coats of finish application coatings by brush or spray gun are recommended to achieve the best results in terms of a decorative appeal.
Hope this Helps :-)

The assembly process is almost finished the only step left is to construct the drawer. (Next Update)
After assembling all the supports we tested out the rack for rod stability by simulating the drawer opening and closing we shook the rack a bit and the rods started falling. I have added a slight modification to prevent this from happening again. (Will provide mod details on next update)

Next update: Drawer construction, Rod Anchor modification and Lure Organiser
Thanks for Reading :D
