Here's one more update ... just finished a pair of these custom racks. Each holds 27 rods for a guy who builds custom ice rods and wanted a better way to display his work.

Let me know if you need a custom rack for your collection.

I just finished two more of these 10 rod racks ... one is spoken for but the other is available. If you were thinking of getting one, now would be a great time. I could stain it to your spec and put the final poly finish on it and ship it to you in a couple days. Let me know if you are interested.

Thanks so much for the rod rack Kevin. Everything I hoped and more.

If anyone needs a rod rack you can't beat these racks. 

No corners cut on these builds.

Here is the 25 rod rack made for Northlander ... he filled it up quickly with some nice custom-built rods.

Thanks for that Kevin. That's just what I needed.

Folks I like it so much Im having Kevin make me a wall mount rod rack.

Like I said before these aren't cheaply made K mart stuff they are very well made with no cheap parts or corners cut.

Kevin I may have you make me a 25 rod rack for my open water customs. Well maybe just a 20 rod with a tad more spacing for them bigger rods and reels. Especially trolling rods.

Okay Northlander ... here is a sample of a rod rack I made for myself. I'm sure I could use a similar technique as used on your 25-rod rack to get more rods to fit. The open water rod rack pictured here uses 1 x 6 boards rather than the 1 x 4 used on ice rod racks.

Northlander - I am headed to buy some lumber needed for various projects tomorrow. Do you want me to go ahead and pick up what is needed to do a 20-rod open-water rod rack for you? I think we could probably do another swap as my open water rods are all getting kind of old and gnarly ... could use a couple new walleye rods! Let me know ... Thanks.

Steve: Here is the wall rack I built for you ... 10 rods and made of pine. Looks pretty good from my perspective. I hope you agree.

Hopefully this is worth a walleye rod or two? I've already promised one (custom walleye ice rod) to my daughter to give to her boyfriend for his March birthday.

 

I plan to get that 20 open water rod rack going here soon.

Folks I love these rod racks. Very well built. As a custom rod maker having good rod storage is a necessity and these fit the bill at a good price.

Kevin that double sided one you made me for long rods is always full of custom rods. Thanks a lot.

Thanks Steve ... I appreciate the comments.

BTW, I have a 10 rod (full size) rack, oak, finished and ready for a new home if anybody is looking for one. $125, pick up in Grand Rapids. 1518100718_Rickysrack.thumb.jpg.3b37a923eb9697b8f3a7a2c3f33ec85c.jpg

Hello I believe I messaged you before.  I own Fox River Lures and Rods and need a 14 rod Ice rack.  7 per side.  unfinished just like this one you did.  I need it asap.  How much?  Can you make it in a way my retailers can assemble it easily rather than having it assembled ahead of time?  Then depending on price I will order more than would not be a rush..  Thank you Chuck DiVito.  [email protected]

From one fellow woodworker to another, great lookin racks @yoppdk 

I already have secure homes for my summer rods, but you've inspired me with a ice rod rack build. 😀

Hi @yoppdk!

 

I was wondering if you still make and sell these racks?  I was hoping to get my husband one for Father’s Day if you do.  I really like the one you posted awhile back  (pictured below).icerodrack2.jpg

Just let me know.  Thanks!

 

Melissa

Yes, Melissa, I can still make those racks. One like this would take 3 or 4 days depending on if I have the wood on hand ... which I am not sure. Either way, we could certainly get it done and to you in time for Father's day. Cost would be $70 plus shipping if needed. You could also pick up in Grand Rapids, if desired. Let me know ... and thanks for looking and contacting me!
