Yeah I know that first picture sucks. I’ve tryed every way from Sunday and still can’t get it to turn 90 degrees.
I’m not tech savy, but I can read a tape measure! Deal with it cupcake!

I’ve want to build this for a very long time but so many things interrupted getting it finished. Now I’ve got a place for all my fishing rod and gear. No more searching for that long forgotten what ever piece.

It’s just red oak, Watco medium walnut and minwax poly. I found the knobs on Amazon. I’m not a fan of Amazon or Bezos but I sucked it up and bought them any way for this one project. I’ll do my best to avoid them in the future !

Awesome fishing chest Bob. And now that Mark fixed it, nothing will fall out of the drawers when you open them :-). Really nice work.

Really nice set up Bob. I should follow in your footsteps and do something like that myself. I usually tell my wife my fishing gear doesn’t need a home cause it’s always traveling.

You’ve been talking about this project for quite some time, and had been wanting to do it for quite some time….You finally did it, and it turned out gorgeous…...!! I like the design, with all the drawers for storage of all that important gear one has to have to catch the elusive micropterus salmoides, and the rod holders….Ditch the spinning rods and reels, and…...just joking, Bob…I have to admit I have 2 new spinning outfits myself…..I wasn’t going to tell you, but decided to “fess up”…..! Great job, as usual..I had no doubts you’d “get ‘er done”... !!

Don’t kid yourself…...just because you made this attractive chest of drawers… still aren’t going to catch a big fish.

knob or no knob – great idea, great execution
and I like Bezos, any one that give his ex 30 billion and still be the richest man in the world is OK with me.
