Very nice. I like the way you’ve hidden the monitor. Any chance on getting some details…wood, finish?

Very nice tying ‘bench’. I’ve never seen one quite this big.

This is a gorgeous table. Hiding the monitor like this is a nice design. I will ditto Dadoo’s remarks on the wood and finish details.

Very unique design. Was this a design of your own?

It looks great!

Just what I need is fly tying table envy!!! I see enough projects here that I would like to build, but one that crossed hobby boundries is just too much! I love it! If the fish stop biting just show them a picture of the cool table the fly was tied on and they have to bite out of respect! Tight lines and straight grains???
