A Milestone Birthday Gift

How do you celebrate a milestone birthday with a good friend who has everything?  Simple, you have the Lure Foundry fabricate the ultimate “Gentleman’s Long Trip Tackle Box”.  This box has a few upgraded features from the original.  They include larger barrel’s on the hinges, a new hidden clasp arrangement on the top plate, and the striking swept post offset handle in figured walnut and curly maple.  Additionally we used ambrosia maple for the trays, and black walnut for the tray lifts and ribs.  The particulars include a two month search for the top plate material alone, 193 individually hand crafted parts, and over 100 hours of fabrication and finish time.  Almost wish I could keep it for myself.
