    Wow, that the perfect fly tying desk. I wonder if it was intended for scrap booking? All those drawers are unusual.

    Patrick, they were labeled as cabinets for crafts, then you bought the top separate and it just sits there. I haven't seen them again since I bought them six years ago, I'm sure glad I got them when I did. The draws are only 2" tall so
    you can't get a lot in them but they work pretty well for most things.

    Mark, that is a perfect desk for tying. The drawers are great. Don't often see drawers like that.

    Mine hasn't changed since the last time, except it got a bit messier. Here's my tying area after a desk tidying.

    Mark, I like your taste in cabinets. I got mine from Fred Meyer, I think, about 8 years ago.

    My wife's tying area is much neater than mine. She has the same cabinets. What can't be seen is the 12 foot long wall made up of plastic rolling drawer units and the under the bed totes we use to keep the full bird skins and animal pelts.

    Some of you guys are far too organized ... how can you tie flies under those conditions? :)

    Mark and Ron,
    Would either of you happen to remember the brand of your drawer/desk units?
    My area currently looks like the aftermath of Katrina and Sandy combined. Those units
    look perfect for material storage. Sauder is one fairly common company but haven't
    found anything like it on their site yet. Thanks for any help.

    Lol, I believe this is becoming the Holy grail of tying desks :) I searched yesterday and Freddies is apparently out and their website is useless. Are there any brand markings on the desk? I will continue the search along with many of you :)

    Jeff,
    Yes, I made the free-standing tool holders. Just red oak stock from Lowes, holes drilled to accommodate tools. I wanted something I could move around. Seem to work out ok. Still in the "test drive" period.

    Eyejuggler, I looked mine over and can't find any markings of any kind. It probably had something on the box but thats long gone. Good luck, somebody must make something similar.

    Larry, your upper cabinet is still awesome, I've always liked it and thought you did a excellent job building it!

    Yeah, but a nice set of wide drawers like yours is pretty kool. Now I just need to organize my stuff, but as you know, don't hold your breath! I built the tall sides so the top would be a fly fishing book bookshelf, but look, there's a dang Websters dictionary up there and other junk!
