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.

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

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.
