Default American Black Walnut Tackle Box

This is the second walnut box for long range fishermen in Colorado. The wood is more expensive and a bit harder to decide on where and how to put the grain, but this result is pleasing to me.

Default How I became a pen turner...

I originally made a holder for a device used to tighten hooks, called a line puller. I paid a very kind man at my local Woodcraft $20 to make essentially two 4” x 1/2” dowels out of African mahogany. I needed to have the holder made from the wood used to make the tackle box. I paid the money, thanked him and decided, “I need a lathe”. That Rikon mini lathe still works and has produced thousands of dollars in wood products including many, many pens. I am here at IAP thankfully due to making these tackle boxes.

Yes, I also like what you've done, if there is one thing that I think is missing is..! where is the cushion so that mr. butt feels a bit softer..?

Cheers

Beautiful work. Love the look of that walnut. Funny how things work like ripples in a pond. First, the saw, then this, then that, then the lathe, then the chucks and tools, ad infinitum.
