Lovely little box. Nice design, nice choice of woods, nice detailing, well made. On balance, an all-around winner. I like this box a lot.

Good job, and definatley add more projects. I am fairly new to LJ's myself and I can tell you it's very addicting. I should be working on projects now, but I am too busy marveling at all these projects. My wife is already given me that glare, cause she knows I have about 7 or 8 in progress now.

Beautiful box, but I was admiring the handmade reel….I guess that comes from being a fisherman. It looks like it was turned out of aluminum (?) alloy…anyway, beautiful on both counts…..thanks for posting..

yes, I was more curious about the reel as well. As an avid fly fisherman, do tell!

The reel is known as a trotting reel! Made from solid aluminium it has a free running ball bearing race that allows the float to pull line off the reel as the current pulls the float and the bait through the water. It is a peculiar English style of river fishing which gives a very natural bait presentation. The original reel cost over £150 quite a few years ago and had been stored in its original rather tatty cardboard box. Hence the request for a more fitting home. Glad it has been of interest.

oh, I see, so it allows the line to run with as little drag as possible. A sort of lazy mend. Thanks!
