    Fishing Pole Rack

    Started this on Saturday and finished today. Nothing fancy but functional. Made for my neighbor's birthday. Added two carved relief fish (dolphin, yellow tail) on either end.

    Cool beans! It does not have to be fancy to get the job done, though I think this is more fancy than you're letting on.

    Nice job on the rack, I'm sure it will be well received
    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    Thanks for compliments everyone. Roger, I also just hang mine in the rafters of my shed. I don't have any place to put a similar rack in my shed or house.
