How Do I Make a Fishing Pole Holder for My Garage?

Making a fishing pole holder for your garage is a great way to ensure that your rods are safe and organized. There are several different ways you can make your own fishing pole holder, depending on the tools and materials you have available.

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

You’ll need some basic materials in order to make your fishing poles holder. These include wood, screws, a drill, measuring tape, sandpaper, and wood glue.

You’ll also need to decide what type of wood you would like to use for your holder. Some popular options include oak, pine, walnut, or mahogany.

Step 2: Measure and Cut the Wood

Using the measuring tape and pencil, measure the length and width of each piece of wood that you will need for your holder. Once you have these measurements marked out on each piece of wood, use a saw or jigsaw to cut them out according to the measurements taken.

Step 3: Assemble the Pieces

Once all of the pieces are cut out according to their measurements, it’s time to assemble them into the shape of a holder. Using the drill and screws provided in step one, attach each piece together in order to create a box-like structure. Make sure that all of the pieces fit snugly together before proceeding with step four.

Step 4: Sand and Finish

Once all of the pieces are assembled together into a holder shape, it’s time to sand down any rough edges or imperfections that may be present on the surface of the wood. Use sandpaper to smooth out any rough patches until they are even with the rest of the holder surface. Once this is done you can apply either paint or stain onto your fishing pole holder in order to give it a more finished look if desired.


Making a fishing pole holder for your garage is relatively simple if you have access to basic tools and supplies such as wood screws and saws. By following these steps you can easily build yourself an aesthetically pleasing fishing pole holder that will serve its purpose well for years to come!
