    DIY Fly Tying Bench

    I don't use this much anymore since I now have a dedicated tying desk and a vise with a pedestal base but here's some pictures of a (small) bench that I built in 2005. It was a fun weekend project. It was nice to have on trips when I would make my friend drive, sat in the passenger seat and tied on the way.

    Thanks, I was really happy with how it turned out. Especially since I had never done any wood work or anything. I remember getting the idea from another site that made one out of cutting boards and I just modified it a bit. I don't remember the exact material costs but it wasn't much at all.

    I like the idea of using the swivel or lazy susan base.

    You could have fooled me. It looks like you have been doing wood working for quite awhile. Very well done.

    That was all my friend's tools that I was using. And yea, I really liked hacking the lazy susan base. I'm thinking about making another one as I gave it away to a friend once I got the dedicated desk I use now. I have some ideas on perfecting it as well so we'll see how it turns out. I may stain it darker too.

    That was awesome Luke... As I was looking I was thinking of reasons to abandon my tying desk.
