How Do You Make a Wooden Fishing Pole Holder?

Making a wooden fishing pole holder is a great way to keep your poles organized and easily accessible. It’s also an easy and inexpensive DIY project that anyone can do. Here are some simple steps to help you make a wooden fishing pole holder:

Gather Materials:

Before you start, you’ll need to gather all the necessary materials. You’ll need some wood, screws, drill bits, drill bits for pre-drilling holes, a saw, sandpaper and varnish or paint. You may also want to consider using some non-slip pads or rubber feet for the bottom of the holder.

Measure and Cut the Wood:

Once you have all the materials you need, it’s time to measure and cut the wood for your holder. You’ll need two pieces of wood cut in straight lines for the sides of your holder.

Depending on how many poles you plan on storing in your holder, you may want to adjust the length of each piece accordingly. Once they are cut, use sandpaper to smooth them down.

Drill Holes and Assemble Holder:

Next, use drill bits to create holes along each side of your wood pieces so that they can be connected together with screws. Once all of your holes have been drilled, attach each side of the holder together using screws and then use a saw to trim any excess wood away. Finally, add some non-slip pads or rubber feet onto the bottom so that it won’t slip when set on a surface.

Varnish or Paint:

Once all of your parts are assembled together, it’s time to finish it off with either varnish or paint if desired. This will give it a polished look and protect it from water damage if used outside.
