My father’s 50th birthday was several months back and he is notoriously hard to buy gifts for that are not just a gift card to Home Depot. So in light of my dilemma, I was scouring the net for ideas on what to do and came across some truly amazing tackle boxes by Sue Spray ( http://www.suespray.com/tackleboxphotos.html ) and immediately knew that was what I would do considering my father’s love for fishing and wood. So, with a week until his birthday this is what I was able to just barely squeak out. (I put the final coat of marine varnish on at 2 AM the day of his party) The outside box and drawer faces are composed of curly maple and padauk, with the drawer sides, back, and the removable top tray made of African mahogany.
