Homemade Wood Ice rod box


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I am looking to make a wood rod box that will fit crossways into my Fishtrap Guide sled. I also want to be able to throw this box into the car to take with me when traveling to my in-laws or other friends' fishhouses.

My idea right now is that it will be about 30" inside length, about 12" inside width, and about 12 or 13" inside height. I would like to attach the rod holder tubes made of a PVC like material to the lid and either have it open up the long way or flip up sideways.

Then underneath the rods would be tackle storage, maybe a battery for lights, some tools, etc.

What have you guys made that would accomplish something like this that you've found works well? Not going to re-invent the wheel if I don't have to. Pictures would be a big help!

If I remember right it was about 15 lbs with everything in it. It might be a little heavy but I have never had a rod fall out. I wanted something to strap to the 4 wheeler and not worry about the rods. This is the 5th year I have had it.

I made one very similar to that last year, not nearly as pretty though. I love it but the only problem I had was that I didn't make it deep enough and the reels would take some finagling to fit right. This is definitely the best way I've seen to carry a large amount of rods. Very nice smoker!
