Last week I came across some old, rough-sawed lumber and I decided to recycle it. I couldn't think of a better way to use it, so I made this custom rod & reel cabinet. I always told my daughter that I would find the "perfect" place to display the fish she made me when she was little...well, here it is! Problem is, my wife took one look at the cabinet and complained, "I don't have one working drawer in my kitchen and you're wasting your time on this?" Oh well, you can't please them all, right?  Enjoy!

Sal, I'm speechless.
A treasure trove of surpassing quality and truly the 'perfect' place to display your daughter's fish.
And in a week?!
Wow.
There's some real talent around here.
Well done, Justin

Thanks Rob!
Although I would love to come to your house, I'm going to have to decline the offer at this time. My wife has been waiting 10 years for a new kitchen; one more project related to my fishing crap ( that's what she calls my beautiful stuff ) and I will need to find a new home Grin.

Wow, that's awesome Sal.  By the way, what are those colored dots on the reels for?

Thanks Bryan!
The stickers are my notes. Some of those reels have brass gears, some have cast aluminum, some have been customized with two anti reverse dogs and some are just to remind me if I serviced the reel or not. Try those stickers, they don't leave a mark and are not affected by grease, they stay on for as long as you need them to.

You are the man, Sal ...ain't no painting you with one brush!  You're wife is lucky to have someone with such abilities... must be a hell of a woman!
Now go re-do the kitchen so you can get more gear.  If you re-do the bathroom as well I bet you get whatever you want Wink
Great job bro!

Ever thought you might just have too much tackle or are you one of the subscribers to the theory "he who dies with the most toys wins!"?

I'm just jealous if you can't already tell.
