Red Oak Fly Tying Bench w Rainbow Trout

Red Oak bench we just finished up, all solid oak dowelled, sanded and glued by hand. The image is hand drawn, woodburned and colored by our in house artisan before it's polyurethaned with 4 coats of Minwax clear satin with a light sanding using 320 between coats for a good durable finish. We've also lined the entire bottom with a thick nap of green felt to keep it in your lap or to prevent marring desktops.

About Me

My photo
Conneaut Creek, PA, United States
I started making turkey box calls about 8 years ago when I needed a hobby; I was a Vol. Firefighter/EMT for 22 years and Capt. the last 12. I never had time for a hobby then, I guess firefighting was my hobby and getting time to bowhunt back then was cherished. I took woodshop in school with the same teacher all 6 yrs. and I learned a lot from him, that started my passion for woodworking. Anyway, needing a hobby I combined my two passions; woodworking and the outdoors..being an NWTF member..what was better than turkey calls, and later hunting stuff; it was the natural thing to do. I recently took up fly fishing and made a few friends that needed some woodworking done for them so now I make fishing related stuff too.
