An Angler's Cabinet Downloadable Plan

Item #
40% of 100

Like contributing editor Rick White, our readers tell us they enjoy fishing as much as making sawdust. It was in the spirit of this sense of community that we asked Rick to share some of his favorite fishing hotspots. He flatly declined the request. Apparently, this is where fishing and woodworking part ways, because he was more than happy to share the design of this angler's cabinet instead.

Decent build
I'm still building it, but wish the instructions were more detailed.

Woodworking Experience:
I should have put more faith in the one poor review of this downloadable plan. Word to beginners, do not purchase this expecting detailed plans or step by step instructions. This reads like a magazine article with a brief description outlining assembly. Interpretation of the "plans" is required to complete this project. Not worth the price.

Woodworking Experience:
Not at all what was expected
The directions are not clear at all. We bought the plans for my son's school project and have spent more time interpreting what should be done rather than building the cabinet.

What are it's dimensions?
Dan S on May 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is approx. 45" x 22" x 92"
How long of a rod will this cabinet (as deigned) accept? Most of my spinning and casting rods are single piece and 6'6" to 7" long.
Chris on Nov 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hey Chris, this cabinet, as designed will accept a rod approx 7'3" long. For a fly rod you will have to cut a hole in the top or take it apart.
do the plans say how much wood i need?
Wyatt W on Oct 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The plan includes a Bill of Materials as well as a cutting diagram and illustrated instructions.
