Inspired by recent posts on this subject. I decided to build my own. I'm no wood worker, but reasonably pleased with the results. The tool caddy and the fly clip holder I already had, just made them fit the new station.
A few pictures

That is a very nice station! Unfortunately, it motivates me to improve on my own. Damn you! So I have to ask, do you have dimensions or did you build it on the fly?

this is how my tying area is set up

5 foot plastic folding table from the big box "w" store

the oasis tying bench. this bench has too many drilled holes in it. 30% of the holes have
no purpose being there. i discovered this after placing all of my stuff into it.

then i added rubber feet to the tying bench. helps the bench from sliding

added a couple of cup holders for storing my hackle pliers. in addition to the cup holders i also
capped off the tip of the brass pins brass pins that hold the thread spools. the tip were sharp from the
factory cutting them and i would occasionally scratch my arm reaching for something. i also removed a
few pins that were really in the way

on the right side of the table i have a tray that holds my liquids and uv resin stuff

a couple of item to hold the finished flies

on the left side i store my long feathers in a vase. whatever kind it doesnt matter

Click the image to open in full size.

a box for my acrylic paints

Click the image to open in full size.

a food container with a lid for holding trimming and waste. yes, i could easily place a waste bin near me or
even between my legs but ive done it this way for 30+ years of tying so why ruin a good thing old habits are hard to break!

Click the image to open in full size.

the entire setup

Click the image to open in full size.

i have 3 windows in my room that face north so i doubt any light will affect any feathers in the vase. plus the
blinds are usually closed when i'm tying. i dont need the NSA seeing what i'm tying. they already spy on us enough

i place 2 lights 1 one each side of the bench. these will be thee for taking photos of flies

this is MY setup and does not reflect in any way how you should set up your area.

be creative. experiment

p.s. please don't quote this post if you are going to make a comment. it is picture heavy
and we really don't need to read the entire post just to see your comment. use the reply vs quote button

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.

Pretty much built on the fly It's 3' x 2' 6". Made to fit the table.

That's a nice looking setup, FT. I like the cup hook idea for the hackle pliers.

Here are some pics of my room... One half is my fly tying bench, the other is my heavy duty sewing area ( I sew military and law enforcement gear (nylon etc) I just finished the fly tying area. It is my first dedicated area in almost 15 years...It made me realize how much I love it and how much material I need to buy...to fill all the free space! I n the pic, the vise is on a pedestal but I now have a permanent base drilled that can be easily removed if I need the area. The bench is long enough to put my rod building wrapper and dryer up when I build my next fly rod!!

Did a major spring cleaning last night so I thought I'd post. I came to the realization that I have too many drawers and may add a pegboard to the wall.
