Custom made to your specifications, tackle boxes are created using only the finest material available. Built one at a
time, each tackle box features premium graded figured woods combined with exotic and domestic woods of
contrasting colors to create a stunning visual impact. Over 200 parts and pieces are carefully milled, fitted and finished
by a dedicated artisan. Stainless steel hardware and penetrating epoxy coating on all surfaces ensure a rugged, usable
box designed to meet your demanding expectations. The basic design was created in consultation with Rob Sanford, a
top sportfisherman. Unique features include ample storage for reels, removable hanging jig holder, compartmentalized
drawers and trays with exquisitely worked wooden handles, dovetails and fine furniture drawer rails. Inset doors with
see through panels in the lid are perfect for smaller jigs and maximize space. Custom built rod holders from stainless
steel and sturdy handles accented with tear drop overlays add storage and convenience. The combination of these
details provide practical and unique components unavailable on any other single tackle box. Interlocking hidden
joinery, accent inlays, custom laser engraving and traditional construction methods ensure a world class tackle box that
will last a lifetime and become a priceless heirloom that you can use today.

vendors ensures Sue has first access to woods generally unavailable to
