Here is another quick CNC project made from just  a small  piece of 1/2 plywood and a 1/2 inch dowel.   This rack is used to organize fly rods that are stored in tubes or socks.  The divider size can be adjusted with removable dowel inserts.  The dowel insert is thick and strong enough to use as a handle, so the rack  can be easily moved into/out of a closet.  

  I made it at Techshop: http://www.techshop.ws

Nice, Any plans to add any stain or oil to the wood.

Nice! That's the prettiest way to organize fishing rods I've yet seen.
