    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. image.jpg

    It is almost done with delivery next week.

    It can be used as a day boat tackle box and will old one or two Plano 3500 trays.[​IMG]

    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.
