    Here is a box I made for a long range trip where 3 people fished out of the same box. The theme was density, I needed to get as much space utilized in as small a space as possible (17"Wx17L"x18"H). All the hardware is stainless all the corners are solid black walnut or red oak for strength and abuse. The trays are removable to suit the needs required by different trips (5day, 8day or 10day), and yes there is a gas strut to help open and close the lid. There are 10 coats of marine varnish inside and out to seal the entire unit. The door on the right slides under the main box to help decrease the space required to work around other people. The same door can act as a table to hold the larger trays. Total weight without all the stuff - 7 lbs. This box is 3 years old and yes it is used quite a bit.

    I miss Harvey too. He was a lot of fun with a really dry sense of humor. Harv, my buddy Bob (Santa) and myself spent a lot of days on the "Q". With both of those old timers breaking my balls unmercifully for days on end. Some of the most outrageous practical jokes and one liners you could imagine. All aimed at the "fat Kid" But it was always done in fun, and I would end up laughing so hard, I couldn't even reel. The picture of Harvey's box, brings back a lot of memories. Heres' to all of the old timers that have made this hobby (obsession) more fun than anything should be. Here's to you Harv. Never forget you trolling a surface jig at Cedros, and just killing 40 lb. YFT, and laughing like a kid. You are truly missed. :-(

    Many great boxes, but I think Bruce wins with his "new" tackle box.

    I made a slightly smaller box. It holds 5 of the large and 1 of the smaller Plano trays. Density of space was the criteria for the design of this box. All the corners are made of hard maple, and the sides are of hard maple plywood to reduce the weight and provide for the hard finish. There are 6 coats of marine varnish and all of the hardware is stainless steel. The front hatch folds down into the base to provide a table to work on and reduce space when left open. The lid has a fold down section that can hold leader spools and other small leader material, while the lid uses a gas strut for opening and closing. A lot of TLC and labor went into this one.

    I was perusing my latest copy of the REEL NEWS (page 40) from ORCA, the Old Reel Collector's Association.
    There was a picture of a a special crate of Von Hofe B Ocean reels.
    The author of the article and builder of the crate is Bob Douglas.

    I knew I had heard that name somewhere.
    This thread was that somewhere.

    Thanks Birdnest.

    What do you guys think of a box made of metal such as Aluminum or Stainless Steel??

    Of course podwercoated , anodized, or similar also in the appropriate dimensions like the wood boxes shown....

    Any thoughts??

    Only one I've ever seen was Dennis Braid's. I was amazed at the amount of work it represented. Unless you're into metal fabrication the idea is just out of reach . . . But wayyyyyy cool!

    Jim,

    Thanks for that info. So it definitely is possible, to the Crayola etch-a-sketch I go!!!

    I'll see if I can find pics of his box.
