Cool, and arrows too, ceder maybe? I have been thinking of making some fly rod cases and fly boxes as well. I’d truly appreciate if you decided to do a blog on their construction. Is there an inner tube?

My wife sews a devided sleeve that covers the rod and fits in the case.
I make arrows from sitka spruce and foot the ends with purple heart.

it’s beautiful.. so much nicer than the standard cases.

option: Engrave the owner’s name on it for personalizing (and perhaps security)....

Love the wood from the Pacific Northwest! Makes me a little homesick!

Lovely case, Biggest. I’m not quite sure whether this fits into the small box category, ‘cause I just love small wooden boxes!

Biggest, I would love to see how you made the tube, any way you’d do a blog on one?

Very Nice work. I have a lot of friends around here that would love to have a case like this.
