These are the tippet dispenser as my second build.
I built the first one before and posted here.
After I used the one for more than a year, I found
it was a bit bulky to handle in a river while can hold four spools.
So, I made these skinny version can hold two spools.
The third pic is planar type, fourth and fifth pics are double decked type.
I reused the same design concept from my previous project “Business card case” posted as
Material used are Claro Walnut, maple and ebony for the hinge of fifth pic.
