A few months ago I posted a picture of a rod rack I'd made but I never finished it with stain and varnish or anything. Anyway, a friend of my wife's came to the house and saw it and liked it so well she wanted one made to give to someone as a gift.

The original one I had made was 36" wide and held 12 rods. At that time I discovered my largest clamp was just shy of being able to open wide enough to be very usable in making it. This time I cut the dimensions back to 30" wide and made it to hold 10 rods, 5 on each side. My clamps worked really well, and after seeing it finished completely, I like it better than mine.

I finished it using Minwax pretreatment and Early American stain. Then applied three coats of satin finish Varathane. The wood is actually just construction grade No. 2 common pine 1x6 and 2x4, but it turned out very nicely. It's being sold for $100. I loaded it up with my rods for the purpose of this photo.
