Have you had issues with Hobby Lobby, Poopdeck?
Looking at the site, Hobby Lobby lists 49 shadow boxes ... and most of them look like wall hanging quality.

No issues with Hobby Lobby since I don't have one within a couple hundred miles of me. I was in one in Florida one time and found it to be less then my expectations.

After perusing the 49 shadow boxes there are a couple I would display in my garage but none that would hang in the house proper. The river's course one posted by flytire would have a shot, possibly the basement. The one posted by stippled popper is the only one I've ever seen that could be featured in the house somewhere where others could see it.

Now this isn't so much me as it is the wife. I know how much custom framing costs because she insists on custom framing. I don't ask how much it costs anymore. Kind of like she doesn't ask me what my fishing gear costs but I know she spends more on framing. Over the years I have come to enjoy the look of something professionally framed and matted. I really don't think she would let a box of flies hang anywhere in the house proper regardless of the framing. I'm okay with this since I have a shop in the garage, a shop in the basement and a shop in the shed. She can do whatever she likes in the house proper as long as she stays out of my shops.

I don’t think anyone has mentioned Sawdust And Stiches. They specialize in fly oriented shadow boxes in kit form, finished and custom. From scanning their web site they are a grade or two below museum and a few grades above your local craft/hobby store. I don’t believe the original poster is looking for museum quality.

Fly tyers sure have a way at making things difficult


Why do you look at a persons profile after they make a post?
