    Flyrod Case -Vaughn inspired me!

    Inspired by Vaughn's pool cue case and my father in laws comments about the oak in the shop I set to work on a last minute gift. As with everything I make there are things about this I am not happy with. It was a learning experience for sure. But I just finished it, give it to him tomorrow! That was close!

    Only thing not done was the foam to keep the rods from rattling around. I added that after the photos were taken.

    Cool stuff, Jeff, and that sure was quick. I'll bet it'll be a much appreciated gift.

    Thanks Vaughn. BTW don't try to cut box joints in old brittle oak! The box ended up about an inch shorter than it started out.

    Looks great, and I bet he can even fit a sandwich or two in there

    Ah, the proverbial "entertainment center that ended up as a nightstand" syndrome. I've ridden that pony a number of times.
