Welcome to Rods, Handles, Decorative Ornaments and Lamps
I'm Steve Peck.
You might say I grew up with a fishing rod in my hand. My father worked in the Fishing Tackle Industry most of his life. I built my first custom fishing rod in 1980. At that time, my parents had started a small, wholesale mail order company selling rod builders components. I was a senior in high school in need of a project for my wildlife class. I do not recall the grade on it, but I passed.
As time went on I built more - getting better with each one, always thinking of the next. I could see many advantages to building custom fishing rods. Soon I had people requesting that I build rods for them. It became a hobby business.
Then one day I discovered wood handles. The ones I had access to, were nothing fancy and a little shorter then I preferred. So, I started playing with my dad's lathe. After some trial and error I taught myself. I started out with the most popular woods and styles and recently purchaesd my third lathe.
Thanks to the help from my uncle Roger and my wife Deb, I am able to show the different kinds of wood that I have to offer. I also make different wood handles by request. I will be adding more custom wood handles to the site so keep checking back!
If you would like to see some of the fish I have caught with my hand made fishing rods, click here. I support "Catch & Release", so many of these fish are still swimming where they were caught.

I love to paint. Birds are my favorite. I like the way the ornaments complement the beauty of the wood with my art.
I have now expanded to hand painting wooden lamps. I'll be adding more of these items to the online store as I complete them.
Remember that each item is hand painted by me right here in good old Minnesota so no two are alike. They are not massed produced in a factory which makes them wonderful collectible gifts for someone special.
