    Why though?
    We don't get mad when they spend $$$$$$$ on shoes, the hairdresser, handbags, clothes, etc etc etc....

    Michael, excuse Flyfanatic, he has not seen the latest ''hairdresser'' modes pushing up prices of genetic capes, and that does compare with woman styles and ff.

    Started last night with a new base for my JVice. Made from Tamboti. Still a LOT of planing and sanding to be done. Also still some recesses to be made in the top section for a few threads, beads, hooks etc.

    All parts are still loose, and will only be glued once the final sanding, shaping and recessing is done.

    I have not been tying a lot of flies, but hopefully this wil lure me back to the vice this winter!

    Thanks Ryan

    I have a pretty settled room for tying and fishing my rods etc. This base is for when I want to maybe tie infront of the fire or TV or something. Takes just the essentials, and basically just making it to look nice. When I tie I take out the materials I need for the pattern I plan on tying, and just work from there, so I don't need a lot of space ito being able to store materials.

    There are some great such stations like you want around though!! Or do you have a specific design in mind?

    Ja, I do have something specific in mind. Want to make something that I can easily carry, has 2 or 3 drawers and I can put all my tools and marker pens on the sides. Just deciding if I will make it with the base for the vice which Jay supplies, or if I'll also include the cam lock which also allows me to make brushes.. I'll probably make it about 600mm long and 400mm deep. Just have to decide on the wood. I also plan to make it using your classic woodwork joins such as dovetails etc..

    How are those bobbin holders working for you that Jay supplied?

    Sounds lovely. I've seem some lovely stations that close like a suitcase (vertical hinges), making it easy to carry, and also safe and neat to store. Sounds like a awesome project.

    They are superb!!! I cannot speak highly enough of them. I have not been tying a lot, but every now and again when I do, I really cannot see myself using the straight bobbins a lot anymore. Really worth it imho. Might not work for everyone, but it certainly does for me.
