for the handel the main rod weather it be fiberglass or graphite ussualy runs thru the handle they just slipp the foam or cork over the rod blank and glue it on

here is a link to some rod buildint tutorials this one is for a fly rod but most applies to all rods

so you are trying to make the blank its self rather than starting with a premade blank that might be tough you might look into split bamboo rod making they are hard to make but with lots of care you can make a reel nice rod blank at home but the fiberglass/graphite rods are machine made and would be dificult to make a quality blank at home with out lots of very expensive equipment

haha, sounds like my dad yelling at me for texting him at school then texting me back telling me how good the fishing is wherever hes on a "business trip"
