Well, I re-read what I posted before and I realised that I may haven't been clear as to what I meant as a joke, I've "assumed" that this tackle box is to sit on while fishing, if not, I'm sorry...!

I would be afraid to take it on a fishing trip, it might get scratched. Beautiful.

I love pen making. My only regret is that it only provides a small canvas for displaying the beauty of wood unlike your pieces which allow it to be seen in all its glory.

Mark, that is a true work of art, I would be afraid to use it for what it intended for. Well done, I'm sure that will be cherished.

Wow. That is stunning. I would be so worried I would get fish slime or smell on it though. I could see a nice box like that in my home office though storing my tackle until I transfer it to my portable backpack for bass fishing.

That is some nice work there. Good job!!

The way tackle boxes are situated on the sport fishing boats few people can sit on them. When this has happened the fishing needle nose pliers are very harsh to nice wood surfaces. I have had the pleasure of refinishing the top of one box where a friend scratched it with his butt and pliers. He does not sit on boxes anymore. They survive very well on the boat. Fish slime and blood washes off very easily with the spar varnish finish. I have tackle boxes built in 2002 that are still beautiful and loved.
