Default Winter project rod rack

I had my rods stacked in the corner in various states of chaos since I moved to the place 7 years ago. I spent 40 bucks and a couple of hours making this rack. The good news is Salmon season opens in 6 weeks!

Simple and effective. Well done sir. It clearly illustrates to me that I need more rods...I'm not keeping up!

Thumbs up

I really like that! And I also agree that it makes me realize that I need more rods!!! What style/type of hooks did you use? From here it looks like bike hooks.

Default Ladder hook

It's considered a ladder hook. It's 5/16" X7 3/4" with a 20# capacity and under a dollar ea.at home depot. It's important to use 5/4 pine (nominal 1") to get full purchase with the screw end. I also used a simple jig to guide the drill to keep the pilot holes level. A handful of 3" construction screws into the 16" OC studs and that's the project. It's a simple concept but attention to detail counts.

Nice. My rod rack in my garage is similar to it.
