   I created this barnwood fishing station, totally from my imagination,  for my fiance Mike for his birthday.
   It stands 5 ft tall, 4 ft wide and 16" deep. Lift off top reveals hidden shelf for extra reels, spools of string, etc. Cabinet below easily fits tackle box with room to spare. There are 3 antique hooks on the back to hang waders, fishing vest and whatever else he chooses. Top backboard is framed to showcase his mounted palamino trout. Will house 10 fishing poles, 5 poles per side. Suede lined holes to protect bottom of the rods.
   This is the biggest project I have ever created. I have a newfound respect for the 200+ year old wood. It is full of surprises and challenges to work with ;-) Cheryl
