Default fly tying material storage

since it was pretty cold today I decided to not go fly fishing...and I hate wearing those no finger tip gloves anyway...it was time to finally make that cabinet and fix up the old one I have been promising myself to do for a long time...

I found an old antique in our attic...and loved it...just needed a bit of glue and some tacks etc...I built a small drawer cab for threads and hooks...one benny of being a cabinet maker/carpenter...however, I should say...those same skills preclude me from smaller ties nowadays too after 40 years of beating myself up...

I had to fake the stain and finish a bit on the new drawer unit to match the antique...it came out OK...but not perfect...bottom line is, the project I have been putting off for a few years is done...a plumbers sink leaks etc ...

but I do have a nice place to keep my stuff now...no more digging through plastic tubs!
