    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!

    Awesome I love old wood cabinets and drawers, nice job!!
    Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.
