    yep - one screw from the bottom for each post. About $70 in materials from Lowes and a half day work..really simple to make, and the legs unscrew.

    Can't say enough good things about the Nor-vise..best $$ I have spent on my fly fishing..

    Not as fancy as a roll top desk (which I hope to grab someday), but I thought I should post my space as it is a little different. I simply have hidden a table among some bookshelves in a closet. Works pretty well since the closet was just being used as storage anyways. Enjoy!

    Ed, your mess would require three of those closets.

    If you can keep your eye off my computer desktop background for a moment, you will notice the fly tying drawers I built a couple years ago. They are approximately 14" deep and work great. I just moved into this apartment, so I'm just now setting things back up. Now back to the computer. Note that the chair is pointed the wrong direction and not the fly tying station where it belongs .... I'm going to have to change things around here. It's Winter and time to tie flies!

    Not a chance Larry. That's the best part of your photo!

    What a cool use for a fine old roll top! I have a family heirloom roll top that belonged to my Great Great Grandfather. I think he'd be honored if I used for tying. Thanks for the great idea!

    Last seen in Portland Or. via Tacoma,Puyallup, Wa.
    I've taken some new pictures of my space after I 've finished the thread rack and moved things around to fill in the space left by the thread boxes. This also makes the whole area easier to reach for things while I'm tying. Now if the pictures will print. View attachment 36613 View attachment 36614 View attachment 36617 View attachment 36616 View attachment 36615 They did it seems and there is a picture of a corner in my room with the other Ikea bookcase that has more fishing and camping books and others. Let's see what you think, I starting to really like it for so much in a small work space. It would have been nice to have my computer closer so I could get patterns off of the monitor, I guess I can't have everything and I'm sitting only about `10 ft to the side of my tying desk as I type. There is a row if bobbiins mounted on the middle brace of the thrread rack very easy to use and I could put another row of tools on the top cross brace if I wished. Thanks for your patience untill I finished this .

    Bob, great looking tying room. I'm jealous. My piles of crap are trapped in the cold cellar/garage.
    Larry, could not get a look at your tying area in that picture. Might need a closeup of that monitor to know for sure if you've got a good setup or just some run of the mill ordinary thing going!

    Here's my dual purpose Fly tying / woodcarving area. It's currently set up for tying but converts quickly to my carving space when the mood suits. The upper cabinets hold my carving stuff and the drawers hold tying materials.
