I hate seeing these. I am going to have to replace my plastic boxes now.

Those are beautiful!

How did you fit the trays are they stacked or on pivots to raise as you open the box? You need to take these by Plano and make them hang their heads in shame.

Thanks for the compliments. Jim, they won’t likely get close to water. Built for a niche of collectors that like to put their cherished vintage tackle in a nice home. Bruce, the two trays stack.

Wonderful work. You’re right, they should never see water! Worthy of the top 3, and heirloom quality for sure.
