These are a new design that i have been playing around with in between some larger jobs. I have a lot of really beautiful cookies or slabs that i was unsure how we showcase them. This design allowed for maximum use of the material and it also is so unique and beautiful for any rustic decor. Each shelf is different and has a different price so please email with questions about size or pricing for a custom shelf of your own.
A friend from Oregon recently requested a custom fly fishing rod rack for her husband. He’s an avid fisherman and outdoorsman and they spend lots of time hiking and camping. She sent me a few images of the design she liked; a clean looking piece that was easy to assemble and disassemble without any screws or nails needed. This certainly made shipping it easier once it was finished! I sourced the lumber from a nearby mill in Schwenksville, PA (which is also my friend’s hometown, so now she has a custom wood piece from home). For the main pieces I used Beech Nut which has a nice grain that really pops with a light stain and poly.
I designed a template for the main pieces so I can quickly create more of these rod racks! Here are a few stain options on the beech nut wood as well as the Minwax Colonial Maple 223 that was used. The walnut wedges, used to secure the main pieces together, were poly’d.
A dry fitting of the unstained Beech Nut and Walnut wedges.
The Beech Nut after maple stain and poly set up for 13 fly fishing rods.
The finished product! Navy felt was used on the bottom of the rack to cushion the fishing rods (not pictured here). Easily customized with your choice of wood, stain and felt! –Tim
