excellent!This would be great to take on fishing trips .. set it up on the picnic table.. and tie away!! might need a lid on the compartments though so the feathers don’t all fly away while sitting outside:)

Great job on your first project!
Isn’t it nice to be able to create a practical solution to your fly fishing needs. Beech wood will last forever – I had a nice workbench made from it, and it was near indestructible.

Thanks all for the comments, this was really the first thing that I ever made after I got a workbench, a gents saw and a set of stanley chisels and a copy of woodworking for dummies. Do’nt knock it, it is a great book to start out. I’ve made a point with all of my projects to include some new technique to learn and to challenge myself. Dovetails, dowels, rabbets, edge banding, resawing, m&ts, raising panels and finishing. Hooked….I’m in the process of finishing the Luytens bench , before it is finished and I share my results I will post all the projects that I,ve completed so I can show what I have learned along the way.Aubster, liked your trays; I have some steel wool soaking in vinager as we speak ; -) wth the intention of ebonizing some pegs for my bench. I think it’s apple vinager,(let’s see) again a first for me…......

Exceptional. Something about fly tying that requires a worktable like this – a precision sport requiring well made flys created on a purpose-built table. Very nice!
