I measured my rocking chair and than determined the best height for the table, sawed the legs shorter and added wheels. Than I built the bench on top in a way that allowed the Giraff light and magnifying glass steel plate to be removed at will.
I purchased my plastic shelfs at the local Fred Meyers and they hold an enormous amount of materials. I used a few hand tools: drill, router, saw, sander and finished with laquer.
I use the front drop leaf to tie on and the back leaf for drying flies. When not in use I coil the electric cord up and wheel the table to a corner of the room. The wonderful part of all this is that instead of being hidden away in my office every night tying flies, I am now in my rocking chair before the fire with the rest of the family. As long as I keep the table reasonably clean and wheel it away when compan comes all is well!
Almost forgot! I later built a rod wrapper that fits on the front wing of the table which allows me to use the lighting system when building rods.
