    Get a slab of wood and drill holes on it, these holes should be some five inches to six inches in diameter. Space these holes some two inches from each other. Now take this slab and attach it to a back panel of wood. This back panel needs to be connected to a base, since it will be holding up the whole unit.

    Now take some PVC pipes, preferable ones that will fit into the holes that you created in the slabs. Now slide them in here and then screw them in the holes in the slabs. These will be acting as the holders for your rod, so you want to spray them and clean them up from the inside to prevent any friction and scratches to occur on your rods.
