Juro, One of the bad things about being an engineer is that I rarely build anything without drawing it first. These are the sketches for the rod holder I built a couple of years ago. Warning the file is big and the drawing is missing a few dimensions.

Your welcome to borrow the winder. I've used the dowel trick mentioned to finish rods and learned the hard way to place bees wax or parafin on the dowel to stick the blank to it. Dust just doesn't come out of rod finish if it falls on the floor.
