    Well started putting together my tying desk today, after working out of boxes and TV stands since Christmas. My wife did not like having all the dead animals in the Dining room(made me hungry) Anyway, still have tons of stuff in the work bench but, need more pegboard hooks. Here's a small and premature picture anyway.

    Alright, I'll be your Uncle and teach you everything I know, BUT, you have to split the material bill with me 50/50. That will be a grand total of $15,000.00 please. I do take Pay Pal.:rofl:

    Just got a new (to me) roll top desk. Super awesome!! It's lockable- big, and bunches of little drawers and cubbies to keep supplies in.

    Right now all my stuff is in a old 1960's science rocket kit wooden box that i wood burned a dry fly on the top and a salmon attacking a fly on the back in a river. My box is over flowing with materials. It sucks being laidoff i want to make or buy a fly tying station. But the best part of the box i can take it anywhere including this weekend to my g/fs grandmas in lincoln city oregon hahaha. I love the pics guys you inspire me to be patient so that i can make my dream fly tying desk and great pointers on places to storage of materials.

    New addition to mine that I've been planning on from the start. I thought I was going to have more wall space and was going to frame a big piece of sheet metal for the wall above the desk. Turns out I needed the book shelf space so I got a couple pieces for below. The space is quite wide so there's no crowding so I don't think it'd work too well for a normal desk conversion, but for others with the wall space and an aversion to peg and slot board it might be a useful idea.
    Peel and stick magnet tape on the different containers hold them quite secure.

    and for those w/out quicktime here's a utube version of the vac video.
