My Tying Space

Recommended Posts

This is my bench. post-14471-1206410257_thumb.jpg Just made it when I picked tying back up. The base and sides are 3/4" Poplar. For the top rails i used 1/2" oak. All in all counting materials and a few tools I didn't have, I only have about 30 bucks total in the bench. Was only $20 for the wood :)

 

here are a few flies I have recently tied. I would greatly appreciate a thorough critique.

post-14675-1207843447_thumb.jpgHello all, I have just completed a new fly tying station, very mod. just would like some feedback from the guru's of the fly tying world. It's made of flame maple, solid cherry, myrtle maple, all pinned and doweled wich no mechanical fasteners. It has a lazy susan tinsel holder to the left, which will be updated with a black elastic strap for holding material. Thanks to everybody for your critiques.

I have tying bench I made but may make a station like that for tying on the recliner. I guess I'm just lazy and the recliner is comfy.

 

I would like to finish the attic for a tying room but I don't know if the summer heat would hurt the materials or my rods. When I'm up there it would be a/c but otherwise it's HOT.

I've been tying at the table I built ten years ago.

But my grandpa just built me a proper one, based on this one from oak, complete with dovetail, drawers, shelves and all that. I'm looking forward to picking it up in June.

Here is my messy space. I need to clean it up so that I have room to tie. Notice the J. Stockard catalog? I am more of a materials collector than a tier, but I hope to change that.
