Default Custom Wood Flybox GIVE-AWAY! **ENDED**

THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED


Hey Guys!
First of all I'd like to announce my new forum sponsorship. Please follow the link Flygrain

I plan on running some periodic contests to get my wood flyboxes into your hands for FREE. These boxes are 100% handmade by myself and I take great pride in my craftsmanship. occasionally the give away box will be one with a minor aesthetic defect. occasionally, it will be flawless. I will specify in the contests.

What I am giving away now is a PERFECT, FLAWLESS flybox I specifically made with this contest in mind. The design has a pivot door operation with a magnet closure. this specific design is called "The Riffle" and is derived from my popular "Pocket Box" line.
This box has a main body of hard maple and the lid is a gorgeous, figured quilted maple. The hardware is a stainless steel post screw and powerful, small magnets. This is a very aesthetically pleasing design and very functional. The inserts are a handmade rippled cork. It really adds a classy look and is FAR more durable and self-healing than you'd think. You'll believe it when you see it

My boxes are finished inside and out with 5 coats of SPAR marine urethane.
They are made for use. This box is slightly less than 3x5x1"

Click the image to open in full size.

This is a very short video showing the operation of this box design. Very smooth and efficient!

OK! Heres how you win!

This contest is "GUESS THE WEIGHT".

Here's the rules...

1- Your guess must read like this X.XXoz.
2- Only ONE GUESS per person. Please respect this in fairness to everyone and so I don't have to police the thread.
3- If the participation dies off, I will do a round II. This contest wont end til someone wins!

When I say free, I mean TOTALLY FREE. I will even cover DOMESTIC shipping.

Now... Let the games begin

Hi guys. after reviewing your guesses and seeing a pattern, I realized I made a typo. The guesses should read like this X.XX I had the decimal in the wrong place. My apologies! DOH!!! You guys that have already submitted a guess, feel free to submit another.

Thanks!

4.44 this should be better...I didn't think it looked big enough to be over 10 oz.
