Introduction: How to Build a Wooden Fly Box With a Router
It started out as a question of "How do I do this?" and turned into an easy to use guide for anyone to follow. These wooden boxes are not just for fly fishing flies but any purpose where a small wooden box is needed. Have fun and enjoy the guide.
(Note: A full PDF file of the most current version of this book is available for free via email. Instructions are on the 1st page of how to get it. )
Make sure you print the templates at a 1:1 ratio or the fly boxes will be the incorrect size.
Use page 4.0 as the registration page. Print the page then measure these areas:
1. The black cut out area should be exactly 2-3/4" x 4-1/8".
2. The space between the four screw holes in the corners should measure 6-1/2" x 9".
Normally, your computer will print them to fit on an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of paper but will add a 1/8" border around the edges. They need to be printed at a 1:1 ratio!
