Mark - the blonde wood is so understated but elegant.  Another masterpiece.  The tackle box you made me is very much appreciated.  Tim

Thanks. The hard maple is elegant and very modern.  That species of wood was both wonderful to cut and join  and also a challenge to sand.   My interest was also peaked by how smooth the stuff becomes when sanded and finished. It exemplifies the word SMOOTH.

A new highly customized tackle box for Floyd Packard to use on the Intrepid.











Floyd had specific needs and requested removable rocket launchers, no top opening and fairly flat stainless handles to match his space on the boat. He also wanted a extra deep 3600 tray at the top. The box is made of African mahagony that is roughly quarter sawn. It has seven coats of high quality spar varnish.

Mark,

I see you changed the handle from wood to metal.  Did you feel the need to strengthen it or was it a customer personal request?

I love the wood, it fits my hands much better. The customer is right and requested it strongly.
