If you've been looking for a cheap and easy way to store your fishing rods...you found it!
My brother is an avid fisherman and has quite a few fishing rods. I wanted to get him something usefull this year for Christmas....so I came up with this.
You can customize this plan to fit as many rods as you need.
The cost for this project (24 rod rack) is around $25 to $30 and will take you an hour or two.
Step 1: Supplies you will need
6 - 90 degree fittings
2 - T Fittings
24 1/2" pipe straps
2 - S hooks
Compound Mitre Saw
Dremel with sanding attachment
2 Drill bits - 1 larger than your screw size, the other slightly smaller than your screw size
2" hole saw
1" Flat head general purpose screws
Step 2: Cutting and Drilling
For this sized project you will need 52 inch pieces. I suggest you cut the PVC with your mitre saw to get a nice clean cut.
Next, you need to measure where you will drill the holes with your hole saw.
Start 2 1/2 inches from one end make a mark, then mark every four inches on center.
Do this on two of the pieces. On the third piece you will do the same measurement, except this will be the top. You will need to drill the marks with your smaller drillbit. On the other side you want to offset your measurement by 1/2 an inch to keep them staggered.
TIP: Use the 90 degree fittings placed in opposite directions to keep your PVC from moving while you drill.
You will also need to cut 2 pieces for the sides at about 36 inches. You will also need four smaller pieces of the same size around 5 to 6 inches to use to connect the fittings.
Next, you will need to drill out the pipe strap with your larger drill bit.
