Rod Storage Cabinet/bench

Recommended Posts

I got off topic in another thread discussing rod storage, figured it would go better on it's one over here LOL.  So, my dilemma. I've got too much gear and no place to put it. I have a 10 rod vertical rack that's filled with stuff under 7'6" and another half dozen of the same size combos in the corner. I've got 8 rods that are over 8 feet stored in the rafters and plan to put in a ceiling, eliminating that storage space (and dust in my garage so I can paint cars, won't be hanging anything else on the ceiling so that's out). My girlfriend has 2 sons, one is learning about flatheads and he'll probably be getting 3 8' Shakespeare Tigers for his birthday very soon. The youngest boy will also be storing his gear with mine, too, so I'll be needing a whole lot of space. Anyhow, one corner of my garage will be a man cave, complete with a couch. The couch will be going on a 10' wall and I would like to utilize the space above it to build a cabinet that will hold it all vertically, along with a bunch of tackle (let's say room for 20 Plano Boxes plus odds and ends without a dry box), backpack, trout vest, maybe a couple pairs of hip and chest waders. I would like to see one of the doors fold down to become a little work bench where I can work on fishing stuff (reel maintenance, rod building/repair, tying flies, get things packed, etc.). Does anyone have something like this at home? Can you post pics/links to videos, tips, ideas, whatever you've got.

Life goals right there!! Really, though, no. I'm looking specifically for neat, organized, and vertical rod storage that folds open into a bench when I need it and folds up neatly when I don't. I can only dream of needing to store that much gear! Way to make a guy jealous.

Showed it to my wife who says I buy way to much tackle.  Thank you so much for sharing that photo.

I know you said vertical, but I think these garage door racks may help free up space.

Good idea! Even though those are velcro'd tight, I'd worry about them popping off and falling on my car/truck. lol

I like that. Actually, I'm currently vertical and have to go horizontal , I like this a lot though. My single car garage door would offer a great solution to storing the shorter rods though, I believe this may be half the battle.

Hi there, your collection is really amazing. There are many professionals who can provide you the customized cabinets. I have heard about NYC movers from my uncle who provided him cabinets service for his garage. According to him, they were professionally trained and provided him quality service.

From what you described, you're going to have to do a custom build.

 

Sounds like a cool project though, have fun with it!

How about a secureable shed like they sell at Home Depot in the backyard? Kind of like a man-shed, lol.  It would keep you garage tackle-clutter free.

This is old but whatever, I built a rod rack out of wood for under 30 and I saw a rod rack at walmart for 40 or 50. It was made by Okuma i believe. I can post a pic of my homemade one tonight if you would like.

Garage is coming along nicely, I put the rods all up in the rafters for now. I need a new garage door, when I get one everything under 6'6 will be going on it as pictured above. Waders and tackle bags now hang from the ceiling and shelving from hooks, packed most of the stock supplies and extras in a duffel bag and hung it up too. It's not as neat and organized but if I go on a trip, I'm already packed. Girlfriend's Impala is dying, bought second Impala to build FrankenImpala when she goes, it's currently in the middle of the garage and I can't do much in there until she's up and running (or in the back yard next to my old truck).
