This fly box is made from Oak and is 5”x7”x1.25” since I tie fly’s I need boxes for them so I started building them.
I use mostly wood that I around the shop. It is fun and useful.

Yep they are fun to make, this is one I made for my Granddaughter, Looking at yours perhaps I need to make some more? I laser engraved her initial on the front after taking the Pic’s.

“Waiter, there is a fly in my soup.”

Little boxes are fun. I like your box, the one-piece lid and the nice old oak. Simple and attractive.

Andre :
I like your box, what did you use on the inside? I am still having trouble cutting mortises for my hinges. Have you got any suggestions.

The foam was from Lee Valley, supposed to be layered 1/4” for packing tools. Got to old and does not separate very well anymore.
The hinge mortises were cut very carefully with a chisel, for a change they actually turned out not to bad:)
