organized. yea right. here's my set-up. table is a 4'x2' folding table from sam's club about $40, 2 3 drawer stackables about $10 at walmart, and about 14 stackable plastic shoe boxes from walmart about $1.49 each. i have numerous plastic bags full of deer tails and peacock tail feathers all over the table. gotta run up and preserve about another 50 plus deer tails. hoping to have a chunk of bear hide on the way. just to add to the mess.

Default I suppose you mean when it's organized for 5 minutes right?

I use those 20 compartment nut and bolt drawer systems that are available at sears or any place else that sells hardware. I also use a lazy susan that is made for paint brushes and the like for art supplies that I purchased for 5 dollars @ our local hobby lobby. It handy for keeping all of my tools in check. I save shoe boxes and boxes from cabelas to store all of my necks, saddles, and other large items that are too big for the drawer systems.
The ones I use are smaller than the ones pictured below, you get the general idea. They are also great because they can mount on the wall behind your desk. Another great idea is to frequent your local tobacconist to purchase empty cigar boxes @ a modest price. They are more durable than cardboard and really cheap to boot.

As a general rule, I try to stay away from my actual fly tying desk. I take from my desk the materials that I need to tie up so many of a specific pattern, and I actually tie while sitting at my computer desk with a vice attached to a tv dinner stand, I tie this way to avoid the temptation of experimentation of all of my materials when I am trying to be focused.
When I am sitting at my tying desk I am too distracted in trying to use all of my materials at one time breeding the most horrific creations you've ever seen.
