Good idea to make a prototype. What boat do you fish? what size feet are you using? You may need to move your door hinge up a bit to clear the shelf lip on the tackle rack. Just something to think about before you spend $$ for some nice wood.

    Here are two large (SKB size but smaller) completed today. One is quartersawn African mahogany for CA and the other is American black walnut for South Carolina.

    For the Star and Vagabond for sure and most boats, leave at least 2” from the bottom to a hinge or rocket launcher. Otherwise you have the dreaded SKB inability to open without 2x4’s under your box. You will see that space on all of my boxes since I started making them in 2000.

    Here is another American Black Walnut “Cube” tackle box for Santa Ana. It is small but holds 24 full size jigs and three half size 3700 trays plus random stuff. Roughly 11” square. Yes, it might also be pretty.
