Very nice build, Archer. Love the simple, crisp style. What is the wood used ? Looks like cedar in the photo.

Thanks!

The side and front wood are western red cedar, and the background plywood is aspen. I wanted it to look like a shadowbox but allow easy access to the contents, so there are hidden hinges on the right side of the front frame, which is held closed by rare earth magnets embedded in the wood on the left side.

The horizontal piece of wood supporting the rod sections is drilled for the rods, and then split lengthwise through the holes and also held together with rare earth magnets.

Hope that makes sense!

All great, but this one really caught my eye. Tasty design, and a nice bit of woodworking.

not so - you have glass covers to keep the dust off - that's the most important thing - and it looks sharp

Thanks all. I'm blessed that the space is small so I can only fit so much stuff!

At long last I got around to properly utilizing my apartment's built-in:

Everything else is literally everywhere, so pictures would be more of an
open-house than a reel and tackle display... However, I am in the process
of organizing everything and will be building a functional rod tube holder
in the near future. There is a ton of inspiration in this thread, so a big thanks to
everyone that has posted.
