Thought I’d update this thread as the project is nearing completion. I reached out to a lad called Ben on Instagram who is both a fisherman and a quality wood worker. This was about two years ago, not long after I started this thread! The reasons for the delay are obvious with restrictions preventing Ben from accessing his workshop for the majority of last year. Sourcing high quality Spalted beech caused a slow start also and then a long drying process to ensure no warping etc.

The drawer pulls will be machined brass and the inlays are green resin filled brook trout. It’s coming together very nicely.. I maybe should have commissioned it with an extra row though! The two holes at each end are larger to accommodate cordura tubes.

Very nice Sean!
Year ago when I had my Winston obsession, I always wanted one of their tube containers like these.
In the end I don't think it was possible as it wasn't take apart as the shipping would be prohibitive. The cost was also pretty high at over $600.
Nowadays I just have the rods stacked up in a corner inside a wardrobe.
I have thought about a reel container though.

I bought a 1930’swooden stick and umbrella stand from a local junk auction that had eight square partitions and a tin base. Ideal for wading staffs and landing nets too.
Can’t send a picture we parted company in a move sadly.

(just looked in eBays there’s a Victorian bamboo arts and crafts umbrella stand but it’s £125 and not a patch in the one your having made !)

Mine are propped up in a corner of the shed!
Mine too, but that's the plastic type I used to transport my cane rods when I moved house.

The cordura tubes I keep my modern rods in live indoors stored upright in a wardrobe, to minimise the risk of putting a 'set' in any of the rod sections during storage.

My cane rods live here.
