Intro: Fly Tying Station
A quick and simple DIY fly tying station.
Step 1: Measure and Cut Your Supplies.
1 x Pine Laminated Board ¾” x 12” x 36” – Cut in half so your station will be approx. 18” long (you can make two)
1 x Pine 1”x2” x 6’ cut as follows: 1x 18” (length of your station), 2 x 12” (width of your station) and 4 x 2” pieces (for the legs)
1 x 1/8” 36’ long dowel (will be cut on demand)
15 x #6 1” wood screw
Step 2: Drilling
Drill pilot hole for every screw (I counter-sunk the screw so they would not catch on anything).
I put 7 screws along the back (probably too many) and one each for the legs
Step 3: Assembly
Screw the backsplash and legs on. Put some glue to ensure a tight fit and follow with screwing the arms on.
Measure and drill holes for the dowels along the back splash (I placed my holes 2” apart) and follow with putting glue on the end of the dowel and inserting it into a hole and cutting the dowel at 2” and repeat until you have the number of spool holder you want.
Step 5: Finishing
Drill various size holes along the arms for the bobbins, scissor, dubbin needle etc. (you decide how many and what size to make them)
Once completed, stain or varnish to you liking.
