Fly Tying Bench – A roll top is the center piece of the room, but it wasn’t always in mint condition. When I moved from Pennsylvania to Minnesota I spent the first six months or so living in my in-laws basement while one house sold and the other was built. I was looking for a fly tying bench, but didn’t want to spend the money on a custom piece of furniture. A roll top seemed the obvious choice with the plethora of compartments and vintage character. Fortunately, I found a listing in The Shopper for $75 in nearby Woodbury. Ironically, the family was moving to Pittsburg and weren’t taking it with them. It took a couple months to re-finish but I enjoyed the project. The desk is paired with a 50’s style chair for $25 which also needed some TLC.
Beverage Center - "Hey, there's even a fridge! This is great! You could put six packs of be... soda in here. Milk, yogurt. You could put candy bars in the freezer." – Tommy Boy. Really anything you want to keep cold. On occasion I do enjoy an adult beverage so I’ve got some Dry Fly Whiskey to satisfy my thirst and keep in the fly fishing theme.
Couch – Here in the Midwest people go “up north” and folks have cabins or campers lakeside. My in-laws went through an upgrade and helped furnish my office. It’s a sleeper sofa decked out in flies and fish.
