    Found this on Craigslist for dirt cheap! Reinforcing it after years of neglect and making it mine! Great project drinking coffee and listening to classic rock! Stay dry!

    I found some old brass handles for the top and the last picture is before I cleaned it up. Storage for flouro on the right lower side below the jigs and storage on the lower left for another catch all box..

    Everything inside is loose so using Gorilla Glue to tighten it up and damn that stuff is the best I have seen. Just cut the shit out of my fingers from the braided wire!
