One of my friends had Marc make him a small one, for like $250,Mark Mayo makes a great wood fishing tackle box. He made one for me and it is beautiful. The price varies depending on size and other details. Usually $700-$800.

Almost the same as a SKB7200 or 710016"h x 20"l x 10 5/8"w. Weighs 18.65 lbs. I'd pass it up...
Never owned one so I wouldn't know. I'm old school and have owned several wooden boxes. I doubt the weight was the same. I did have a nicer one that was probably in that weight range though. My first one was a Semco and it was light enough. Until loaded with jigs and lead. I have found some decent nylon bags in the past and used them, along with Plano boxes fit inside. I still have a strong back so weight isn't really the issue. It's not like I'm in school and have to wear a loaded backpack and walk to and from school. Uphill, both ways and through several feet of snow. More laughing... I simply use what I like. If I ever move back to Kali (doubtful as hell) I would prefer to go with something designed for a saltwater envnironment. Thank you for the info though. More knowledge leads to wiser purchasing decisions.Almost the same as a SKB7200 or 7100
