Default Rod Wrapper by DSRods

David sent me a couple pictures of his home made rod wrapper. Nice looking setup!

Attached are two pictures of the wrapper. Please make a note that the cradles had felt added to them to protect the blank.

Thanks,

David Banaka

Thanks for posting the wrapper. I also added felt to the cradles in order to not damage or scratch the blank. Each cradle is removable and you can adjust them as needed. The drying motor is a 12 RPM which works great for drying your finish. The tentioner is from a sewing shop. All other materail was purchased at The Home Depot. It is a pretty easy setup to make and works great.
