Wood Shop Project

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to do something in my wood shop class to help organize my tackle in the garage/house. I was wondering if you guys had any plans or ideas for me. Thank you in advance

I tackle box shelf storage rack. With rod setups on both ends. If you put the shelf type rack on casters you can have rod holder's across the back too.

A ceiling rod storage rack works too.

Storing tackle boxes and rods is a problem I have. Plus my present lures I'm using has a backup supply and my backup supply has backup too. When I'm using a lure that's hot and it goes on sale I buy more.

maybe some kind of rod holder, either stand up or on the wall.

 Make a wooden version of the old "possum belly" tackle boxes, with dove tail joints, fold out trays, the whole works.  Make it out of oak, or hickory, walnut, teak, or some other hardwood.   Use brass fittings for the hinges, corners, etc.   Get an A

Hi Zachb34,

Make a stand to hold storage bins. These bins come in different sizes but the smaller ones are good for fishing gear. You can store all of you reserved baits/plastics in their package. If you work on reels or make skirts, they hold your project. Lots of uses.

Sorry don't have any pics to help me describe mine.

 

I made rod rack that sits on the ground.  it holds 4 spinning rods on each end.  It can then hold my tackle in-between.  Sort of like a shelf/rod rack combo.  I made me with individual slots for each of my Plano 3700 tackle boxes will slide in (sort of like the small screw drawers at your local hardware store.  That way they are all stored and easily accessible so I can choose what I want.  I also left enough room for my tackle bag to sit.

 

Same principal as this picture only instead of the drawers and doors I made mine open and made it so that I had the storage for my flat tackle boxes and a tackle bag.  I then got bored and did some wood burning on it.  Think I burned some trout and other fishing onto it.  After I stained it a darker color I really enjoyed how it turned out.

Didn't you just get a Jon boat? If so why not make a rod rack for the boat? Jon boat metal is not very friendly on the gear and a rack would be a way to bring them and hold them securely

I think this is a great idea.  I was looking to make a rod rod rack myself, but this one looks more functional.

This was originally a microwave cart that I reclaimed and put drawers in it and built rod holders on the side. I also put in a shadow box to display a few of my grandpas lures. Very handy I keep all my line and reels in the drawers so they're nice and out of the way. If you want to store the rods with the reels on, you'd need to make the bottom wings just a hair wider so the reels fit better in between the rods and the cabinet itself. Not only a good storage solution, it was cheap as well.

This one was a reclaimed tv cart. I whipped up some doors for it quick and put a new top and sides on it along with a little adding a little support. It holds most of my tackle trays now. I whipped it up pretty quick, and again I did it on the cheap. I think both projects combined cost me around $35. I think they'd make good projects for you too.

(ps ignore the dirty unused fish tank lol)
