We have been remodeling the house the past year and I have been getting into woodworking and building stuff for the house. My spouse bought me this table for tying a few years ago and it has worked very well. Here is my old setup on the table. But there were some things I wanted to improve with this setup. One big problem was our two labradors and the husky. They get very curious and the old station was small so all of materials were at the edge of the table, and it was game on for the dogs whenever feathers or anything else fell on the floor. The second thing was that the old stand only had a dozen holes for tools, scissors, bobbins, etc. so it was kind of a hassle. I had thought about building my own station for a while, but I was in Spokane last month at a surplus warehouse for a furniture company and found this: They had some very nice mahogany as well as some great darker wood and all of it was pretty cheap. So I bought one board of mahogany and another of the darker wood and put together something that would cover the entire desk so things would not fall off into dog world, and also I wanted plenty of holders for my tools and thread. Here is the glue up And the final product still in the garage The cutout in the middle is for my giraffe light/magnifier and it fits flush with the surrounding board. I also had some extra wood so built a holder for finished flys. The bolts hold a Wheatley foam insert so I can replace them as they get cut up. Here is the whole setup with my vise, tools, etc. Works very well! It was great fun. I really enjoy woodworking but fishing is my passion, so it was fun to combine the two.
