Tying Bench

People often ask me for plans and photos for my fly tying bench. Well, it's nothing special, I built it myself out of 2 by 4s and a 1" pine board for a top. This bench would be an embarassment for some folks but hey, you asked and I don't really care! As for plans, I actually didn't plan it at all. I just went to a Lowes, pictured the bench in my head, figured out what lumber I needed, bought the wood, took it home, and built the thing. Funny thing is I only had a few pieces left over. The original bench was twice as long but I cut it down when I quit tying for a living. As you can see, the wood is still rough and the whole thing is quite crude. Why spend time jacking with making it pretty when you could be out fishing!
