Homemade rod rack storage?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to think up a convenient and efficient homemade rod storage rack for the garage to he my poles freestanding and not leaning against the wall in an unreachable corner.

Something I really like is this rod and drawer system but this rod and tube rack would be cool too. Anyone have something utilizing PVC?

I use 18" lengths of PVC Pipe screwed to the ceiling. Slide the Rod Butt into the Pipe and they are safe and out of the way.

Pay no attention to that 16ft trueline resting on the Tee.

I used a 4 way instead of a T in case I wanted to drop down another level and create another shelf. I could not find a 4 way in PVC so I had to use a galvanized. I think the 4way also opens you up to other imaginative applications.

Just under $5 in parts if you throw out the gal-4way.

Many years ago I made an upright wall rack in my garage.I used a left over 6'piece of 1"X8" and two 1" thick and 8" long piece of wood which was nailed to the studs wallboard side of the garage.I then nailed the 1X8 to that.At the time I used 23" long tubes of PCV(1.5"ID) to handle my 11' plus honey Lamis.I then used two U bolts per tube to fasten to the 1"X8" board.My tubes are about 5 3/4" apart so my 706 and 704's would not touch each other.I also drilled holes in the tubes at the desired depth in the tubes and put a bolt in so my rods were resting on the the bolt and not the PCV.I was able to get 7 tubes on the board.If done today I would use a longer board as I have more than seven rods and would use screws instead of nails.

A pretty simple rack system using scrap wood. Can hold a lot of rods. Some would say too many . It's worked out pretty well for me in my garage.

These things ( 2"electrical conduit supports)

Take a 1x2 (or 2x4 or whatever) attach it to the ceiling. Screw these to the wood every 6" or so. Slide the butts into these. For the tips cut one foot off and make a hook. I have them all over the place, at the house, at the shore, at the cabin. Most are 6 or 8' long (that's 11+ rods per rack) I've even made them and given them as Christmas presents.You can mount them horizontal too and for all of a couple of bucks!

Here are a few that I have pictures of from over the years. The second one is the one I currently use, although next week school starts back up and, being a tech ed teacher, I think I am going to make a nice oak (or other hardwood) rod rack. I will post back, if I do...
