This doesn't have anything directly to do with fishing but I had to share. I subscribe to the belief that one can't have too many "man toys" including pocket knives, flash lights, etc... My problem is I didn't have any set place to keep them and I was always tearing up my house looking for the right one for a given day.

I finally decided it was time to get a "toy box" but couldn't find one I liked. Thus I asked Mark Mayo of these very boards to build one based roughly on the dimensions of an ammo box. This pic is of the work in process and I can't wait to see it in person.

It's made of "quarter sawn" African mahogany.

Nice, that new job must pay very well.
Donna, it wasn't that much considering the workmanship. It will be a keepsake. I've been working so darn much lately that I rewarded myself with a product that will last a lifetime. If I lived on the Left coast, I would have Mark build me a wooden tackle box. And, the new job doesn't pay all that well but its a job. Being unemployed for 8 months makes one appreciate having a paying job.

Sold the boat, now I just rent a stateroom on the EXCEL
Need to drill some holes in it so the crickets can get some fresh air.
