This project was a bit of a challenge in the beginning. As I have never used plans, but rather build everything in my head then go to the shop and build whats in my head. I never want to build anything and then later wish I had done it differently, although it happens sometimes. Being a avid fly fisherman and fly tyer, I had a really good idea of what was needed to be included in this build. But, this one was not for me, but rather a birthday present for my daughter’s boyfriend who loves fly fishing as much as I do. So after talking to him and seeing what flys that he likes tying, and what all tools he has to use, I had a really good idea of what he needed. It had to be moble, thus a fly tying station was needed rather than a fly tying desk. After a slow start, BAM, it clicked and I was on my way. This was a really fun build. It is made from maple, with a poly finish. It will hold 108 spools of thread, and has places for all the various tools used in fly tying, plus room for more. Lots of storage for various materials used to fly tying. I did borrow a idea from some LJ’s and inlaid a 2015 penny in the top.
