Title: Second Black Walnut Tackle Box for Colorado
Post by: mmayo on April 09, 2018, 06:32:57 PM
I am fortunate to have finished another Series 7 tackle box headed for an owner in Colorado.  I like the grain I found this time.

Simply beautiful, the grain on that one panel is exceptional. incredible craftsmanship.
We throw so much wood thru our wood chippers, wish I could get it from log to that.

It weighs about 20 pounds. My experience shows that the stuff inside weighs far more, but I carry it for seconds per trip.

  I would like to know were you get your hardware  from ?

The SS piano hinge is from Amazon as are the stainless tubes.  The eye bolts, t nuts, and various screws is from Albany Fasteners.  The hasps and eye straps are from EBay.  The hasps are called spring hasps and take a while to arrive from China, but very nice if installed well.  Best of luck!

People pay a lot of money for wood like that in a gunstock. The way you ran that knot around the side is out of this world. I've seen people book match 8 pieces of wood in a circular pattern to get the effect that you got in one board on the top.

Spectacular, as always.

Thanks.  Buying wood for this box involved picking through 70 - 12’ long boards to find the right main piece.  Yes, I carefully restacked all the wood too.  So with one board to make the top, bottom, front and two sides thinking was needed.  The back needed to be a second board.  The handles and rocket launchers also were from that first main board.

I was happy about my choices and I very much appreciate your positive comments.  I am currently making a walnut “Jon” box for a guy who already has one of my large boxes.
