Plans for Making a Fishing Pole Rack

Plans for Making a Fishing Pole Rack
If you are an avid fisherman, then you more than likely have some more expensive fishing poles. These poles need to be taken care of so that they are in good condition for use. Having a rack for storage is a good way to do this because each pole is kept up and out of the way. They aren't leaned against a wall waiting to be stepped on, knocked over or entangled.

Instructions

Difficulty: Moderate

Things You’ll Need:
  • Rod clips
  • 1-by-4-inch board
  • Sandpaper and stain
  • Flathead screws
  • Drill
  • Drill bit
  • Screwdriver
  • Measuring tape
  • Level
Step 1
Cut a 1-by-4 board to form 2 boards. Length of the boards depends on how many rods you are wanting to hang up. Sand and stain the boards if you want a finished look.
Step 2
Screw the rod clips onto the boards using flathead screws and a screwdriver. These clips will hold the rod shafts. It is best to purchase ones that have a rubber coating or foam on the inside so that the rods don't get scratched. Drill pilot holes where you want the clips with a drill bit that is smaller in diameter than the screw. This will keep the wood from splitting.
Step 3
Drill a pilot hole on one end of the board with a small drill bit. Screw the boards into the wall so that they are perpendicular to the floor. Use a drill to place one screw at the top of one of the boards. Check to be sure it is level, and then drill a screw in the bottom of the board as well.
Step 4
Measure down from the ceiling to the top of the board that you just installed. Move about 4 feet to the left or right of the first installed board. This is where you will install the second board. Measure down to find the location of the top of the board. Place the board there and screw in the top screw. Level the board and screw in the bottom screw.
